Welding hose manufacturers produce gas welding hoses designed to safely transport flammable gases between the torch and welding torch. They come in various lengths and thicknesses; categorised according to connection sizes; for instance oxygen/acetylene use size B connections while inert gases require separate size B fittings.
High Temperature Hose
Welding is an application that calls for high-performance hoses. Since welding generates heat that releases hazardous fumes and vapors, they must be transported away from the welding area to protect personnel from injury. High temperature hoses are ideal for this task due to their ability to withstand extremely hot temperatures.
Food-grade hoses are constructed using non-toxic materials to meet the stringent standards set forth by the food industry, while their odorless design helps preserve flavorful products. Furthermore, they can handle high pressure supplies which makes them essential in managing supplies in busy restaurants or breweries.
Gas welding hoses come in both rubber and metal materials, depending on your temperature range and working pressure requirements for your project. Rubber welding hoses are often preferred because of their lightweight yet easy maneuverability while metal ones offer greater durability but may not work with all gases.
There are various kinds of welding hoses used for various applications. Each has specific properties; among the most important being pressure tolerance. Another key characteristic is being able to prevent leaks, as these could impact weld quality negatively.
Additionally, welding hoses must also be durable enough to withstand abrasions and chemical damage. Hoses that are vulnerable to this damage may develop cracks in their welds over time which will weaken them over time.
Considerations when selecting a welding hose include its ability to withstand high temperatures. Welding hoses that can withstand higher temperatures are advantageous because they will allow for improved weld quality as well as reduce accidents and injuries; those with greater tensile strengths are preferred as well.
Vinyl Gas Hose
Gas welding utilizes a flame to heat the two metals together until they melt and fuse together, using a gas welding hose as transport for necessary gases needed for creating the weld.
Size B gas welding hose is a widely used variety. This size can be found both oxy-acetylene welding hoses and oxygen hoses. Inert gas applications also utilize this size, usually featuring right-handed threads that match those found on oxygen cylinders.
To complete a gas welding project, the hose must be combined with either a nozzle or collet body. Nozzles come in various diameters that produce various shielding profiles and laminar flow lengths; when selecting one to suit your project needs, be mindful of which requirements the weld requires; for critical or high-quality welds, gas lenses are recommended while for practice or non-critical welds, collet bodies will do just fine.
Twin Welding Hose
Twin welding hoses are industrial-grade hoses designed to transport fuel gases & oxygen safely for industrial use. Available in Grade R or T variants, grade R twin welding hoses feature color coded oxygen (green for oxygen and red for acetylene) to help identify incorrect connections that could pose safety hazards; their covers are flameproof & oil resistant as an extra measure against risk.
Grade T twin welding hoses are specifically designed to transport alternative fuel gases such as LPG, propane, natural gas and propylene in addition to acetylene. While they can also transport acetylene safely, using Grade T hoses with propane will cause them to dry rot, creating an unsafe working environment for welders. They have an especially designed cover made to resist oils in propane as well as flame & oil resistance; available in 50 foot lengths. We manufacture & distribute fluid power hoses used for air, cooling hydraulic applications including air cooling/hydraulics/all fluids/breathing applications as well as alternative fuel applications & features such as quick connector systems/multi-couplings with custom machining capabilities available upon request.
