Extruded TPU Fuel & Oil Discharge Lay Flat Hose
Formerly OROFLEX 30 OIL
- Specially Designed for Fuel & Oil Transport
- Premium & Flexible Leak Free Hose for Extreme UV and Ozone Conditions
- Completely Antistatic: 4 grounding wires to help prevent static build up
- In compliance with MIL - PRF - 370 Type C for Military Use
Tan cover is the standard. Other colours available upon request (NATO green also available).
Designed and recommended for fuel and oil discharge operations in refineries, mari- time industry, chemical plants, and military installations. Ideal for brackish and seawater transfer, ship-to-shore unloading, ship-to- ship refuelling, bulk fuel discharge/loading, tank-to-tank transfer, aircraft refuelling, and home fuel delivery.
Made from circularly woven 100% high tenacity synthetic yarn, completely protected and locked-in by a tough, highly resistant thermoplastic polyurethane extruded through the weave, forming a single homogenous construction without the use of glues or adhesives. It includes 4 electrical wires protected with a braided sheet of polyester to help prevent static build up. The construction of the hose does not permit corrosion or scaling, while giving a high resistance against abrasion and cutting. Easy handling, storage & transport, which allows for fast installation and retrieval. 2% maxi- mum hose elongation and 10% maximum hose expansion.
a. Ultimate Tensile Strength of the lining: Minimum guaranteed value of 5,800 psi (40 MPa).
b. Ultimate Elongation: 500% minimum.
Standard lengths in 330ft (100m) and 660ft (200m). Longer lengths may be available upon request.
The OROFLEX OIL hose will extend the lifetime of your application when under extreme conditions, where abrasion is the main concern. Under practical conditions, thermoplastic polyurethane is considered to be the most abrasion resistant elastomeric material.
Service Temperature Range:
From -58ºF (-50ºC) to 150ºF (65ºC), with peaks of up to 175ºF (80ºC). Special versions for higher and lower temperatures available upon request.
No visible signs of cracking will appear due to the ozone. Excellent weather and UV resistance.
Exposure to seawater and contamination by most chemical substances, hydrocarbons, oils and greases has no effect on the short or long term performance of the hose. A chemical resistance chart is available and TIPSA will supply specific chemical resistance data when requested by the purchaser for unique applications.
As requested by purchaser; Camlock, Victaulic, Storz, etc. This hose mus be properly connected to conductive couplings and properly grounded when transferring fuels in order to prevent electric build up. To do so, the 4 electric wires woven into the body of the hose need to be electrically bonded to the couplings.
