Truco has built its reputation on its ability to innovate and design new industrial rubber product solutions for challenging applications, manufacturing products that exceed customer expectations.
Now we've added stainless steel braided hose to our extensive product offering!
Truco has many different types of hose, including steel, rubber, composite, PTFE, PVC and fabric. Which hose you buy depends on the application.
Industrial rubber products from Truco are used throughout mining, agriculture and other industrial applications in South Africa and Africa.
Truco is one of the largest suppliers of engineered industrial rubber products in Africa:
Truco has been at the forefront of industrial rubber manufacturing since 1892.
There are eight factors to look out for when considering using Stainless Steel Braided Hose:
If either the temperature of the media going through the hose or the surrounding atmospheric temperature is very cold or hot, Stainless Steel Braided Hose may be the only material that can withstand the temperature extremes.
Stainless Steel Braided Hose can handle a wider variety of chemicals than most of the other hose types. If the hose will be exposed to aggressive chemicals (either internally or externally), Stainless Steel Braided Hose should be considered.
Non-metal hose is susceptible to having gases permeate through the hose wall and into the atmosphere. Stainless Steel Braided Hose, on the other hand, does not allow for permeation.
Potential for Catastrophic Failure:
When a Stainless Steel Braided Hose fails, it usually develops small holes or cracks. Other hose types tend to develop larger cracks or come apart completely. If a sudden failure of the hose can be catastrophic, a Stainless Steel Braided Hose may help minimize the effects of a failure.
Abrasion and Over Bending Concerns:
To prevent abrasion and over bending, a Stainless Steel Braided Hose can be used as a protective cover.
Other hose types will melt when exposed to fire whilst Stainless Steel Braided Hose maintains its integrity up to 649° C.
Achieving Full Vacuum:
Under full vacuum, Stainless Steel Braided Hose maintains its shape whilst other hose types may collapse.
Flexibility in Fitting Configuration:
Virtually any type of fitting can be attached to Stainless Steel Braided Hose.
