Swagelok's Doug Nordstrom, Senior Project Manager for Hose, led this briefing packed with practical advice grounded in decades of experience helping engineers, operators, technicians, and buyers select hose for their fluid systems.
In industrial markets you’ll be choosing between metal core, fluoropolymer (or Teflon), thermoplastic or nylon, and rubber core. Each has clear strengths and weaknesses, and applying the wrong hose to an application can drastically affect hose life and safety. The majority of the briefing is devoted to the importance of considering routing and hose motion, risk of static dissipation, variations in permeation, and metal hose fatigue. Real-world examples illustrate the risks associated with incorrectly applying hose and the rewards of getting it right.
