Rubber Bulk Material Handling Hose

About product

In marine applications, ruber bulk material handling hoses also find utility for various purposes. These hoses are designed to handle abrasive materials, including but not limited to, sand, gravel, and mud in marine environments. They are commonly used for dredging operations, offshore mining, and transporting materials such as sediment, slurry, and other bulk substances in marine settings. These hoses are engineered to withstand the demanding conditions of marine environments, ensuring efficient and reliable transfer of materials.

  • Conveys abrasive materials efficiently while resisting wear.
  • Maintains structural integrity with multiple plies of high-strength tire cord reinforcement.
  • Prevents collapse under suction or high-pressure conditions with steel wire helix reinforcement.
  • Protects against weathering and environmental factors with a synthetic rubber cover.
  • Ensures secure and leak-free connections with metal flange joints.
  • Anti-static properties prevent static electricity buildup and discharge.
  • Specifically designed for marine applications, including offshore mining and ash discharge processes.

Product Detail

Rubber Bulk Material Handling Hose Construction

Rubber bulk material handling hoses are constructed with several key components that enable them to withstand the demanding conditions of abrasive applications. The typical construction of such hoses includes:

  • Abrasion-resistant inner tube: The inner tube of the hose is specifically designed to resist abrasion from the materials being conveyed. This inner tube ensures smooth and efficient flow while protecting the hose from wear.
  • Multiple plies of high-strength tire cord: These hoses feature multiple layers of high-strength tire cord reinforcement. The tire cord provides excellent tensile strength and helps to maintain the structural integrity of the hose.
  • Steel wire helix reinforcement: A steel wire helix is incorporated into the hose construction to provide additional reinforcement and prevent the hose from collapsing under suction or during high-pressure applications.
  • Synthetic rubber cover: The hose is equipped with a synthetic rubber cover layer that offers protection against weathering, abrasion, ozone, and other environmental factors. The cover enhances the durability and longevity of the hose.
  • Metal flange joints: Metal flange joints are used to provide secure connections between the hose and the equipment or piping system. These joints ensure reliable and leak-free operation during material handling operations.

Additionally, the rubber compound used in the construction of these hoses is formulated to provide excellent resistance to weathering, abrasion, and ozone. Importantly, it is designed to be anti-static, reducing the risk of static electricity buildup and discharge.

Rubber Bulk Material Handling Hose In Marine Applications

In marine applications, rubber bulk material handling hoses are extensively used in offshore mining and ash discharge operations. These hoses are carefully engineered to withstand the harsh conditions encountered in marine environments.

In offshore mining, these hoses are crucial for the extraction and transportation of materials such as ore, sediment, and gravel from underwater mining sites. The hoses’ abrasion-resistant inner tubes and high-strength tire cord reinforcement enable them to withstand the abrasive nature of the materials being handled. They effectively prevent wear and damage, ensuring smooth material flow during offshore mining operations.

Additionally, rubber bulk material handling hoses are employed in ash discharge processes, particularly in power plants and industrial facilities. These hoses are designed to handle the transportation of ash, including fly ash and bottom ash, from the combustion process. They are engineered with reinforced layers and sturdy construction to handle the abrasive nature and high temperatures associated with ash discharge.

The hoses’ synthetic rubber covers provide excellent resistance to weathering, ozone, and other environmental factors commonly encountered in marine applications. Furthermore, their anti-static properties help prevent the buildup of static electricity, ensuring safe handling and discharge of materials.
