Tough Rubber Covered (500 LB Test) Fire Hose Construction
This rubber covered (500 lb test) fire hose is constructed from 100% synthetic yarn combined with nitrile rubber. Thru-the-weave manufacturing utilizes a circularly woven frame that is completely locked in with tough nitrile rubber to produce a single homogeneous unit. The laminating process consists of a 3-ply system, independently extruded and double vulcanized for maximum durability. The longitudinal ribbing reduces drag and provides for long service. The twill weave of the reinforcement resists puncture.
These rubber fire hoses are rated to 1750 PSI or greater, ultimate elongation is 500% minimum, and the smooth nitrile rubber provides durability while minimizing pressure drop. This fire hose remains flexible down to -35°F and will resist heat up to 1200°F for two minutes without rupture or damage to the synthetic reinforcement.
Custom Fire Hose Options To Meet Your Requirements
As required per customer specification, these rubber fire hoses are available with internal expansion ring-threaded aluminum or brass, other connections available upon request. Manufactured to NH/NST and NPSH/IPT standards, custom thread patterns are available upon request.
