Alemite 3/8"Idx7' Air Or Water H Part# 317803-7 (1 Ea)
General-purpose hose for conveyance of air or water in industrial applications | EPDM synthetic rubber tube for resistance to aging, heat, ozone, and chemicals, with a chloroprene cover for resistance to weathering and oil | Spiral nylon synthetic reinforcement for strength | Maximum operating temperature of 180 degrees F | Two 1/4" factory-installed, crimped brass male NPT rigid fittings
The Alemite 317803-7 air and water hose has a 3/8" ID and is 7 ft. long. It is constructed with an EPDM (ethylene-propylene diene-terpolymer) synthetic rubber tube for resistance to aging, heat, ozone, and chemicals, with a neoprene (chloroprene) cover for resistance to weathering and oil. Its spiral nylon synthetic reinforcement provides the strength necessary to reach and maintain its maximum pressure rating of 300 pounds per square inch (psi). This hose is capable of functioning effectively to a maximum temperature of 180 degrees F. It comes equipped with two 1/4" factory-installed, crimped brass male National Pipe Thread Taper (NPT) rigid fittings. This hose is suitable for a wide range of commercial and industrial water and air conveyance applications.Industrial hoses transfer or convey air or liquid in hose systems. When selecting industrial hoses, use the STAMPED method: S = Size (ID, OD, and length) T = Temperature (maximum and minimum temperatures of material being transported) A = Application (industry or process) M = Material (to be conveyed, type and concentration) P = Pressure (maximum working pressure) E = Ends (type of end connectors or couplings on hose) D = Delivery method (volume and velocity)The inside diameter of the hose must be adequate to keep pressure loss to a minimum and avoid damage to the hose due to heat generation or excessive turbulence. The hose must be capable of withstanding the minimum and maximum temperatures that occur within the hose system. Some applications require specialized oils or chemicals to be conveyed through the system. In this case, hose selection must ensure compatibility of the hose tube, cover, couplings and O-rings with the fluid used. Industrial hoses are used in systems such as air compressors, automatic manufacturing operations, aircraft controls, and tire installation in industries including agriculture, mining, road construction, firefighting, and aviation.Alemite manufactures lubrication and fluid handling systems and components.
