Cut & Couple is one of the few companies who has established a new, innovative crimped steam hose. As opposed to the older style that was big and bulky, this new style reduces the bulkiness of the hose and eliminates large bolt clamps. Additional benefits include fewer leaks and blow-outs, increased electrical continuity that reduces the occurrence of static discharges and shocks and a tight grip. Whereas the previous style of steam hose could get caught on people and property and therefore reduce the capabilities of the hose, the new crimped style is able to overcome these obstacles and increase hose performance by reducing the potential for injury and damage. In addition, the hose is customized to meet various needs and applications.
Cut & Couple has chosen a GoodYear steam hose and Campbell crimp steam fitting. The Goodyear steam hose is the premium choice for multiple steam applications as assemblies reduce electrostatic discharges and cut costs. The Goodyear steam hose and Campbell crimp steam fitting have been tested with the goal of exceeding 2500 psi at 406°F and hose WP of 250 psi. at a 10 to 1 Safety Factor. The couplings and hose exceeded 23 times the WP with the hose bursting at 5925 psi. The assembly was simple and only required force over lubrication or pounding. When the pressure was raised there were no leaks or movement detected, even at 5000 psi. This concludes that the assembly combination is safe for the 250 psi steam hose. The crimped feature also proved that it does not require bolt re-tightening after each use.
