It should be based on specific applications when choose the appropriate silicone hose, joint and silicone hose tube assembly. The factors should be considered are: the type, the size, the length, the system working pressure, the system fluid and the use of the environment of silicone hose tube. Please refer to the selection of product standards.

There are various joints of silicone tubes, and different joints should be selected according to different types of silica gel tubes. Note: there are two types of silicone tube that need to be stripped and not stripped, and the joint is not the same. The groove of the joint sleeve of the type of stripped rubber should not be too sharp, otherwise it will damage the reinforcement layer of the silicone tube. It is very important for the safety and normal operation of the silicone tube assembly to withhold the joint correctly. There are many types of joints, and appropriate joints should be selected. The design of the socket should be standard and reasonable. Sharp grooves and non-standard sizes will buckle the steel wire reinforcing layer.

How to Choose Silicone Hose Size Correctly?

In order to select the right size silicone hose, it is important to measure the inner and outer diameters of the hose as well as its length. You can use calipers to measure.
Hose internal diameter (I.D.) measurements are made using DASH dimensions, which are commonly used in the industry today. Just as hydraulic hoses and fuel line hoses have instrument panel sizes associated with them.
Remember: To measure the inner diameter correctly, you must measure the outer diameter. When measuring the outer diameter, the wall thickness of the hose must be considered, which will determine the size of the inner diameter. For example, depending on the size of the hose, its wall thickness may be 1/8 “or 3/16”.
When purchasing proper Silicone Hose Tube, choose the proper size of the Silicone Hose by adding 5 mm to the outer diameter of the Hose.

We should pay attention to these points when buying silicone hose  in the future, and choose the right silicone tubes.We can have a voice call or video call if you want. Looking forwards your inquiry.
