||Unlike hydraulic hose and fittings, industrial hose and couplings are usually made by different manufacturers. While many industrial hose manufacturers suggest couplings to use with their hose for a given application, they cannot guarantee the assembly will perform to the rated burst pressure of the hose.
Industrial hoses are used to convey acids, chemicals, gasoline, abrasive materials, LP gas, solvents, welding gases and slurries. Many of the materials conveyed through industrial hoses can cause serious harm to workers and the environment. However, the hose assemblies that are used to transport these hazardous materials have no established safety standards!
