Petroleum hoses are used to transport petroleum goods, including as liquid products from the refining process (primarily fuels and oils), as well as crude oil and semi-processed petroleum products. Crude oil, gasoline, kerosene, heating oil, diesel oil, hydraulic oil and lubricating oil, hardening oil, machining oils and emulsions, honing oil, thermal oil (heat transfer oil), transformer oil, various types of solvents, maintenance oil, asphalt and asphalt emulsions, and other liquid bituminous substances are all examples of petrochemical products.
Hoses and hose assemblies are used for petroleum extraction and processing, liquid petroleum product transfer, loading, and unloading (e.g., oil tankers in ports, tank trucks, rail tankers), oil and fuel distribution and refuelling (e.g., petrol pump hoses, heating oil delivery hoses), technological processes in the industry, vehicle fuel systems, hydraulic installations, and so on.
Consider the following while choosing a hose: Resistance to specific aromatic hydrocarbon content in fuel, resistance to modern fuel additives and oil additives (unleaded fuel, biodegradable fuel, transformer oils), and any special requirements for static charge protection (copper wire, antistatic rubber, conductive rubber), particularly in potentially explosive zones
Petroleum hose couplings and fittings (see INDUSTRIAL FITTINGS) should be crimped with ferrules using crimping machines or installed with worm-drive clamps, bands, and bolt clamps.
