The right hose and accessories for your application
The common definition goes: “A hose is a flexible elongated hollow body.” RIEGLER hoses are designed to convey gaseous and liquid substances. When exactly do you use hoses to carry your media? Flexible starting and/or end points, areas that are difficult to access, the use of pipes exceeds the weight specifications or is too expensive.
Hoses are exposed to different mechanical, thermal and chemical loads during application. These include high pressures, strong negative pressure, temperature fluctuations and aggressive media. Hoses are exposed to heavy wear in pneumatic applications. At the same time, they must remain flexible under all loads. Hoses must not contract, expand, crack or soften. They should also be resistant to chemical influences.
The pressure loss or pressure drop in a hose is caused by wall friction, among other things. Friction losses occur each time a medium is conveyed through a hose. Observe these facts when dimensioning hoses. Friction losses depend on the conveyed medium, the hose diameter, the conveying speed, the surface quality of the hose wall and the type of installation. A hose installed in a straight line has a significantly lower pressure loss than a hose installed with many bends.
The hose diameter affects the flow rate, but not the pressure. Pressure drops with increasing hose length – at least for liquid media. The hose size is based on its inner diameter. To specify the size, the nominal diameter DN plus the internal diameter in millimetres is used.
Hoses are available in a wide variety of materials: Rubber, EPDM, NBR, SBR, PVC, PUR, PA, PE, silicone, glass fibres, metals, herbal and animal raw materials, technical fabrics. For any application: We have the right hose and ideal solution for any application in the industrial and sanitary sector, as well as in beverage and food production.
