Steam Hose

Can your hoses handle the heat?

Want to raise the bar on steam hose performance? There’s a new option on the market that lasts twice as long as other hoses. Whether you have high temperature cleaning needs or need to transfer heated oil or water, Eaton hoses can handle the heat. Heating, cleanliness, or maintenance – steam hoses help to keep your system’s moving parts from freezing and locking up in colder months and prevent dangerous failures. It can be used for steam tracing to help heat stagnant pipe sections, control liquid viscosity and freeze protection. Steam is also used to clean a wide range of surfaces, such as to clear dried on sintered contaminants. Steam applications can be used to add moisture to a process while also maintaining heat. For example, steam is used for moisturization in production of paper, so that paper moving over rolls at high speed do not suffer microscopic breaks or tears.Steam applications are inherently dangerous; it’s important to utilize products that provide maximum safety. Eaton offers not one, or two, but three different steam hoses that can stand up to the dragging, scuffing and abuse found in many applications such as hot water cleaning or high-pressure process steam services. To ensure consistency and reduce the danger of grabbing the wrong hose, the name of the hose and working pressure are molded into the hose cover meaning it can’t be rubbed off! This ensures there is no confusion as to what this hose’s job is when in use and, when the time does come to replace the hose, there is no guessing.

Eaton Steam SlayerTM hoses have proven to be the standard in high heat situations. Eaton’s Steam Slayer raises the bar when it comes to steam hose performance and has been engineered for a 10:1 safety rating. Eaton’s team of engineers has developed this innovative product to last over 2,000 hours during steam resistance testing which is over twice as long as the competitors tested. Steam Slayer comes in three different colored covers to cater to the consistency of your plant; hog-fire red with yellow ink transfer layline (EH081), black (EH080) and red and black barber pole stripe (EH084).

The H0084 Concord Standard steam hose is great for common applications while maintaining the 10:1 safety factor.The tube is constructed with a specialty chlorobutyl blend, reinforced with a 2-wire braid with stainless steel anti-static wire and a pin-pricked EPDM cover. If you have an application that is absent of the danger of spark and light, the H9568 Concord 250 Steam is held to the same standard of H0084 without the anti-static wire.

Steam Slayer and Concord hoses outlast the competition. When put through a steam resistance testing, the two leading competitors fall to pinprick ooze, startup leakage at interlock fittings, cover blisters and tube popcorning failure. Only Eaton hose can last up to 2,000 hours under the stress of saturated steam which is circulated at 407°F through the hose assemblies on a steam rack. Every 150 hours assemblies were allowed to cool down, then steam was restarted.

Eaton products have exclusive elastomers that support superior heat resistance and provide for longer service life, will resist flaking rubber particles and will handle most steam cleaner detergents. Hi-strength steel wire braided reinforcement found on all Eaton steam hoses keep the hose limber and easy to handle. The cover ensues maximum service life and value when compared to competitors. Eaton hoses are built to endure, giving them an exceptional ageing, weathering and heat resisting properties keeping the hose flexible and easy to use.

Eaton doesn’t stop at the hose. We have individualized steam hose crimping with specially engineered EJ and FK series couplings. Losses from a leaking steam system can cost in many ways. Personal safety, procurement, maintenance, and premature product replacement can all affect a company’s bottom line. Eaton’s new steam hose assembly system with our Steam Slayer hose and the EJ Series fitting offer a matched engineered assembly that was tested for over 2000 hours without any leakage. This new matched assembly will also reduce the effects of static electric discharge. These new assemblies not only reduce maintenance cost, but also reduce operator’s exposure to hazardous situations. Be sure to choose a matched hose and fitting engineered system designed specifically for steam applications.
