The hose industry has undoubtedly gained great development, from the initial limited types and specifications to today’s hydraulic engineering machinery, oil drilling, aerospace, automotive, ship, coal mining, agricultural water conservancy and many other fields, the use of hundreds of hose types, hose specifications are thousands of species.
According to ISO/TC45 (International Organization for Standardization Technical Committee No. 45), SCI hose sub-technical committee statistics have been developed hose standards have 77 as many as 20 international standards involving the hose test method, the current hydraulic hose life to 1 million times the pulse has been very common. In recent years, due to the growing call for environmental protection, the use of unleaded petrol and refrigerant R134a use are required to use the hose to meet the requirements of environmental protection, while the application of flame retardant and flame resistant hoses to give more attention.
With the emergence of more sophisticated machinery and equipment, the hoses used also put forward higher requirements, such as the requirement for a larger bending radius and smaller mass, and ISO/DIS11237 hydraulic type steel wire tightly braided reinforced rubber hose and hose assemblies are clearly defined. It is also hoped that the hose industry will be able to recycle waste hoses in the same way as the tire industry to avoid polluting the environment. With the emergence of new materials and the widespread use of thermoplastic elastomers, there is reason to believe that the hose industry will use mature production technology to produce products that meet the requirements of the 21st century.
