- Polyester for resistance to abrasion and flex fatigue
- EPDM reinforcement for resistance to weathering, ozone, UV, electricity, oils, water, steam and some solvents
- Female NST for connecting to pipe and male NST coupling for connecting to nozzle
- Brass connectors for corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability
- Maximum pressure rating of 250 psi
This Key fire hose has a 1-1/2" inside diameter and is 100' in length. It has a polyester cover for resistance to abrasion and flex fatigue with EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) reinforcement for resistance to weathering, ozone, UV, electricity, oils, water, steam and some solvents. It has a 1-1/2" National Standard Thread (NST) female coupling on one end and a 1-1/2" NST male on the other end. These fittings are made of brass for corrosion resistance, ductility at high temperatures, and low magnetic permeability. It has a maximum pressure rating of 250 pounds per square inch (psi) and a burst pressure of 500 psi. This hose is suitable for use in firefighting as well as the transport of liquids in the shipping industry, offshore operations, and agricultural applications.Industrial hoses transfer or convey air or liquid in hose systems. When selecting industrial hoses, use the STAMPED method to help determine the type of hose needed: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.Key Fire Hose manufactures hose for firefighting, industrial, military, marine, mining, agricultural, irrigation, and forestry applications. The company, founded in 1988 and headquartered in Dothan, AL, meets National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), FM Approvals, Food and Drug Administrations (FDA) standards, and military specification MIL-H-24606.
