Depending on your application, we have several outer jacket options for your heated hose. The options listed below are our most common jacket options, but we have other options depending on your transfer medium and the environment where it will be in use.
General Purpose, Flexible and Dry Environments
Braided from 10 mil polyethylene terephthalate monofilament yarns. This material has a wide operating temperature range, is resistant to chemical degradation, UV radiation, and abrasion. This sleeve cuts easily and cleanly with a hot knife and once installed, will beautify and protect any heated hose or cable application.
This material is flame retardant, cut & abrasion resistant, and has a temperature range of -94°F to 257°F and is perfect for heated hose assemblies that are in a general, dry environment. This material is used in our heated hoses requiring extra flexibility.
Corrosive & Wet Environments
Industrial grade Pyrojacket® withstands repeated exposures to molten steel, molten aluminum and molten glass up to 3000°F (1650°C). The heavy coating of our proprietary iron oxide red silicone rubber compound sheds molten metal splash immediately, so very little heat transfer occurs.
Industrial grade Pyrojacket® will withstand continuous exposure to 500° F (260°C); up to 2000°F (1090°C) for 15-20 minutes; and up to 3000°F (1650°C) for 15-30 seconds. When exposed to flame, the silicone rubber transforms into a crust, creating a protective SiO2 refractory layer.
Industrial grade Pyrojacket® is constructed from high bulk glass fiber knitted sleeve. Excellent modulus of elasticity makes it an excellent choice for bundling hoses, tubes and cables in a variety of hostile environments.
Extreme Environment – Corrosive and Wet Environments
For heavier usage environments, our heated hoses are available with a thermoplastic rubber reinforced jacket with a wire helix. They have a superior temperature range of -60°F to 275°F, good abrasion resistance and resists oil and chemicals.
Extreme Environment With Wear Strip – Corrosive and Wet Environments
For wet, extreme, heavy use environments, our heated hoses are available with a thermoplastic rubber reinforced with a wire helix and an external polypropylene wear strip for superior drag resistance, preventing premature wear-through. They have a temperature range of -60°F to 275°F, good abrasion resistance and resists chemicals. This heated hose jacket has a heavier wall and the wear strip is molecularly bonded and will not delaminate. Ideal for applications where dragging is involved.
