SUCTION AND DISCHARGE HOSE
Suction and discharge hoses are commonly used for air and water transfers, proving to be a safe and effective method at transferring these materials. We also see petroleum, hydraulic, hot tar, and food and beverage applications utilize suction and discharge hoses. Whatever the job, the pros at TCH Industries will assist you in speccing in the right hose every time. Some common applications for suction and discharge include:
- Oilfield Petroleum
- Chemical Suction
- General Service
- Water Suction
- Oil & Fuel Transfer
- Multipurpose Suction & Discharge
- Beverage & Food Transfer
- Oilfield Hot Tar
- Coolant Transfer
- Material Handling
WHAT IS SUCTION AND DELIVERY HOSE?
Suction and delivery hose tend to be lower pressure applications that transfer media from one location to another. Depending on your suction and delivery application, you may need to only consider the necessity of a helical wire. This type of reinforcement will prevent the hose from collapsing in on itself in suction line applications. Some hoses, for example, in chemical applications, will utilize a dual wire helix for full suction and discharge. Even if a hose meets the proper pressure and chemical compatibility for the job, certain applications, such as food and beverage transfer will require hoses that have been FDA certified.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUCTION AND DISCHARGE HOSE?
The main difference between suction and discharge hoses generally comes down to the reinforcement. As mentioned before, suction hoses are reinforced with single or dual-helical wires to prevent the hose from collapsing under pressure. Corrugated suction hoses provide a better bend radius and ease of use, as well as allow fluid to flow beneath the hose in applications such as breweries. Corrugation also provides better abrasion resistance, as only certain parts of the hose’s cover are touching the exterior surface. Discharge hoses, often layflat hoses, do not require the same reinforcement because there is no negative pressure.
