Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) hose is a widely used pipe material in industrial, agricultural and domestic applications. Their widespread use is due to the low price, ease of processing and durability of PVC hoses. However, there are many different types of PVC hose, each with its own unique characteristics and uses.Today we mainly explain the different of PVC hose.
Suction Hose vs. Discharge Hose
PVC Suction hoses are designed to suck fluids or gases from one place to another. These hoses are generally used for applications such as pumping water out of a flooded area, transferring water from one tank to another, or draining swimming pools. On the other hand, discharge hoses are designed to move fluids or gases away from a source. These hoses are used for applications such as irrigation, firefighting, or pumping water out of a well.
Reinforced vs. Non-Reinforced Hose
PVC Fibre Reinforced Hose are designed to withstand high pressure and heavy-duty applications. These hoses are usually made with a combination of PVC and other materials such as polyester or nylon, which makes them more durable and resistant to kinking. Non-reinforced hoses are designed for light-duty applications, such as watering plants or washing cars.
Clear vs. Opaque Hose
PVC Clear hoses are transparent, which makes it easy to monitor the flow of fluids or gases through the hose. These hoses are commonly used in industries where the visual inspection of fluids or gases is necessary, such as the food and beverage industry. Opaque PVC hoses, on the other hand, are not transparent and are commonly used in applications where the color of the hose does not matter.
Braided vs. Unbraided Hose
Braided PVC hoses are reinforced with a layer of braided polyester or nylon fibers, which makes them stronger and more durable. These hoses are commonly used in high-pressure applications such as water pumps or air compressors. Unbraided PVC hoses, on the other hand, are not reinforced and are commonly used in low-pressure applications such as water delivery or irrigation.
High-Temperature vs. Low-Temperature Hose
High-temperature PVC hoses are designed to withstand high temperatures and are commonly used in industries such as the automotive industry, where the hose is exposed to high temperatures from the engine. Low-temperature PVC hoses are designed to withstand low temperatures and are commonly used in applications such as ice dispensers or refrigeration units.
