Product launch: 2-piece hose guard from Alfotech
The industrial hose is one of the most important components of the process plant. And due to the extreme conditions, it is often exposed to, wear and tear is inevitable. This drastically reduces its lifespan, resulting in more frequent replacement costs and, in the worst-case scenario, costly downtime.
But did you know that there are some easy ways to extend the life of your industrial hose? In the following, we take a closer look at our new 2-piece hose guard and explore how it works, where it can be used and how it can help protect your industrial hose from wear and tear and other damage.
Design and application
Hose guard solutions, which are often made of rubber material, help to extend the life of industrial hoses by protecting them from heavy wear and tear during normal operational use as well as various cleaning scenarios. At Alfotech, for example, we sometimes see damaged milk hoses in the dairy, as they have over time become very worn due to dragging across the floor, impact during reeling, foam cleaning with chemical liquids, etc.
Alfotech's new hose guard, which supports the DN standard, is made of nitrile rubber (NBR) and comes in 2 parts, which are put together via an intuitive interlocking system with both rails and barbs. Both parts are internally designed with grooves that hold the outside of the hose together just behind the coupling.
Alfotech's new 2-piece hose guard has 3 key advantages:
- Can be retrofitted to any existing industrial hose that is not already "born" with it
- When using more than one, liquid can run under the industrial hose so that it does not become a dam for the drain
- Available in several different colors for easy color coding
Was the new hose guard not what you were looking for? At Alfotech we have several alternatives, including two different guards with different designs. Our rubber hose guard for drum and foam lines is made of flexible and strong nitrile rubber and is available in several colors so you can easily distinguish your industrial hoses.
Alternatively, our robust extruded polyethylene hose guard can easily accommodate multiple hose dimensions due to its helical construction. In addition, it also contains anti-static additives for good electrical dissipation, which is particularly suitable for productions where ATEX directives apply.
