Specify A Hose Assembly


Need a Hose Assembly? The Acronym S.T.A.M.P.E.D. helps you remember the 7 basic questions to be answered before selecting the suitable hose assembly:


What are the hoses Inside (I.D.) and Outside Diameter (O.D.)? What is the overall length of the hose assembly?


What is the temperature range of the material flowing through the hose? What are the temperatures highs and lows of the hoses outside environment?


What is the hose being used for? (discharge, suction, venting, hydraulics, etc.)


What material or substance will flow through the hose assembly? Specific materials (i.e. gases, chemical, abrasive, oil, etc.) often require specific hose design parameters to be sufficiently contained and utilized.


What is the maximum working pressure of your application? Does the pressure level experience surges and/or regular decreases?


What type(s) of fittings are required for the application? (i.e. male or female, angled, metric, jic, pipe thread, etc.) Are the fittings designed for the hose?


When replacing a hose assembly, have it rebuilt/duplicated to recommended specifications.
