Rubber is a product of natural substances by changing their physical properties. This change usually occurs in a process time according to the use of rubber, using a special way or several ways and processed quickly.Are rubber hoses better?

1、Storage life

The storage time should be minimized by continuous planning. If it is impossible to avoid long storage time and the following suggestions are not adopted, it is necessary to check carefully before using the rubber hose.

2、Temperature and humidity

The optimal temperature for storing rubber hoses is between 10°C and 25°C.

Rubber hoses cannot be stored in an environment higher than 40℃ and lower than 0℃.

When the temperature is less than -15℃, it is important to be careful when handling rubber hoses.

Rubber hoses should not be stored near fire sources or in an environment with too high or too low humidity.

It is recommended that the maximum humidity is 65%.


Storage of rubber hoses must be in a dim environment, avoiding sunlight and strong lights.

The storage room should have windows with glass or glass doors.

4、Oxygen and ozone

Rubber hoses should be kept in suitable packaging or sealed containers to avoid air circulation.

Since ozone has a special corrosive effect on all rubber products, the storage room for rubber hoses must not contain ozone-generating substances, such as equipment working under high current strength, electric engines and other substances that emit sparks or electric arcs.

5、Contact with substances

In general, the rubber hose can not and solvents, fuels, oils, grease, volatile chemical mixtures, acids, disinfectants and other organic substances.

Moreover, some rubber hose direct contact with some metals (such as manganese, iron, copper and their alloys) and related mixtures will also have a negative impact on the rubber hose. Should also avoid contact with PVC, wood injected with wood distillation oil or woven fabrics.


The second point about the temperature limit must be taken seriously.

If there is no way to meet this condition, then it is necessary to use heat-insulating coverings.

7、Magnetic and electric fields

The storage room must exclude all kinds of electric and magnetic fields, because electric and magnetic fields can activate the metal joints and make them warm up. Similar electric and magnetic fields may be generated by high-voltage cables or high-frequency generators.

8. Storage environment

Rubber hoses must be stored in a relaxed environment to avoid extrusion and deformation, and avoid contact with barbed or knife-edged objects. It is better to store the rubber hose on a special shelf or on a dry flat surface. Rolled up rubber hoses should be laid out horizontally to avoid stacking.

If this is not possible, the stacked rubber hoses must avoid lasting deformation of the rubber hoses placed underneath. According to the technical standards, the manufacturer declares that the diameter of the inner ring when curling the rubber hose must not be less than twice the bending radius of the rubber hose.

It is also wise to avoid storing curled rubber hoses on poles or fishing hooks. There is also a good way to store the rubber hose in a horizontal, straight, do not have a bend.

9. Rodents and moths

Rubber hoses must be kept away from rodents and moths.

If this danger is likely to happen, then it must be carefully guarded.

10、Wheat head on the package

The packaging with wheat head on the rubber tube is a very effective way to identify the rubber tube.

11、Out of warehouse

Before shipment, we must check completely and meet the requirements of customers.

If the joint is not card type, snap type or insert type, it is necessary to check whether the locking ears are correct due to long time storage.

12、Return to warehouse

Used rubber hoses must be cleaned of any substances left in them before they are put into the warehouse. If the rubber hose has conveyed chemical substances, flammable and explosive substances, abrasive substances and corrosive substances, more attention should be paid to the cleaning work. After cleaning, check whether the rubber hose is suitable for re-use.


Rubber hose standard use method

After getting the correctly selected rubber hose, the user should install the standard according to the following contents.

1、Pre-installation check

Before installation it is necessary to carefully check the characteristics of the type, caliber and length of the rubber hose to make sure it is in line with the required specifications. And this visual inspection must be able to determine the surface of the rubber hose without debris, cracks, damage or any obvious defects.


The rubber hose must be handled with care to avoid collisions, dragging on uneven surfaces and squeezing. When the rubber hose is bent and knotted, it should not be pulled violently. Generally speaking, heavy rubber hoses are transported in a straight line and must be placed on special supports for transportation. The wooden supports used must be untreated with distillate and unpainted, as they can damage the rubber hose.
