Note: Weights and outside diameter dimensions are nominal. End fitting vs. hose pressure limitations must be considered and the lower of the two ratings must be used on assemblies.
Burst Pressure ratings at ambient 70ºF (21ºC). See applicable notes below on vacuum/pressure ratings at temperatures other than ambient.
Working Pressure is given @ 70ºF; Decrease working pressure 1% for every 2ºF above 212ºF.
Vacuum Rating is given @ 70ºF; Decrease vacuum rating 1% for every 2ºF above 212ºF. 1-1/4" and larger sizes, vacuum rating decreases when installed less than 2X min. bend radius.
Flare-Thru fittings are pressure rated. Not rated for vacuum service.
Extended Service Life Tip: Suggest using full-length anti-kink armor casing or at least 16" to 24" long anti-kink cuffs (see Hose Cover Options) at each fitting end to help reduce the strain on the crimp collar and fittings in high load installations. Prolonged service at elevated temperatures will reduce total service life.
