Introduction of water hoses of various materials.

Product introduction:


PP-R hose

PP-R hose, also known as type III polypropylene hose, is non-toxic, light, pressure resistant, corrosion resistant, and has good impact resistance and long-term creep performance. It is mainly used in water supply hoseline system and can be used in pure drinking water hoseline. PP-R hose is divided into cold water hose and hot water hose. The interface of PPR hose adopts the hot-melt technology, and the hoses are fully integrated together. Therefore, once the installation pressure test is passed, the aging and water leakage phenomenon will not occur for a long time like the aluminum-plastic hose, and the reliability is very high. PPR hose has no scaling, good heat preservation performance and smooth hose wall. It is becoming a promotional material.

However, the high temperature resistance of PPR hose is slightly poor, and the long-term working temperature shall not exceed 70 ℃; And bending construction is not allowed. In terms of comprehensive performance, PPR hose is the hose with high cost performance at present, so it has become the preferred material for home improvement.


Introduction of water hoses of various materials


1、 Main features:

  1. Non toxic, hygienic and environmental friendly. The raw material molecules of PP-R only contain carbon and hydrogen elements, without harmful and toxic elements. It can be used not only in cold and hot water hoselines, but also in pure drinking water systems.
  2. Heat preservation and energy saving. The thermal conductivity of PP-R hose is 0.21w/mk, which is only 1/200 of that of steel hose.
  3. Good heat resistance. Vicat softening point of PP-R hose is 131.5 ℃. The maximum working temperature can reach 95 ℃, which can meet the use requirements of hot water system in the building water supply and drainage code.
  4. Long service life. The working temperature of PP-R hose is 70 ℃, and the working pressure (P.N) is 1 Under the condition of OmpA, the service life can reach more than 50 years.
  5. Easy installation. PP-R hose has good welding performance. hoses and fittings can be connected by hot melting and electric melting, and the strength of the connection part is greater than that of the hose itself.


2、 Main purpose:

  1. Hot and cold water system of the building.
  2. Heating system in the building.
  3. Pure water supply system that can be directly drunk.
  4. Central air conditioning system.
  5. Industrial piping systems for transporting or discharging chemical media.


3、 How to select hoses

  1. Pay attention to the determination of the overall service factor C (i.e. safety factor) of the hoseline:

For general occasions, and the temperature is less than 70 ℃ for a long time, c=1.25 can be selected;

For important occasions, with long-term continuous service temperature ≥ 70 ℃, and it is possible to operate at higher temperature for a long time, c=1.5 can be selected;

  1. For cold water (≤ 40 ℃) system, p.n1.0 ~ 1.6Mpa hoses and fittings are selected; hoses and fittings ≥ PN2.0MPa are used for hot water system.
  2. The wall thickness of hose fittings shall be greater than that of hoses of the same specification.


4、 Precautions during installation:

  1. PP-R hose has low hardness and poor rigidity, especially the hot water hose is brittle. It should be protected during handling and construction to avoid mechanical damage caused by improper external forces. After concealed laying, the hoseline position shall be marked to avoid damage to the hoseline by secondary decoration.
  2. PP-R hose has certain low-temperature brittleness below 5 ℃, so be careful in winter construction, and use sharp knives to cut the hose slowly. The installed hoselines shall not be pressed or knocked, and the parts vulnerable to external forces shall be covered with protective objects if necessary.
  3. PP-R hoses are prone to aging and degradation under long-term ultraviolet radiation, and must be wrapped with dark protective layer when installed outdoors or in direct sunlight.
  4. PP-R hose shall be connected with metal hose or water heater by means of mechanical connection such as threaded insert or flange, and the rest shall be connected by hot melt to make the hose integrated without leakage point.
  5. The linear expansion coefficient of PP-R hose is large (0.15mm/m ℃), so technical measures must be taken to prevent the expansion and deformation of the hose when the hose is installed in the open or not directly buried.
  6. After hose installation, pressure test must be conducted before hose sealing (directly buried) and covering the decorative layer (non directly buried concealed laying). The pressure test pressure of cold water hose shall be 1.5 times of the working pressure of the system, but shall not be less than 10MPa; The test pressure of the hot water hose shall be 2 times of the working pressure, but shall not be less than 1.5MPa. The time and method of pressure test are specified in the technical specification.
  7. When PP-R hoses are laid in the open or non directly buried way, supports and hangers must be installed as required.


PPR hose quality identification

The real PP-R hose shall comply with the standard iso/dis 15874.2-1999 < < plastic piping system for cold and hot water - PP Part II hose > > the hose fittings shall comply with the standard iso/dis 15874.2-1999 < < plastic piping system for cold and hot water - PP Part III hose fittings > >; The performance of pseudo PP-R hoses and fittings cannot pass the above standards. It should be pointed out that the service life of pseudo PP-R hose is only 1-5 years, while the service life of real PP-R hose is more than 50 years.


PE hose

PE is made of polyethylene. PE hoses include medium density polyethylene hoses and high density polyethylene hoses. SDR series are divided according to wall thickness. PE hoses are mainly used for municipal buried water supply, building water supply (drainage), farmland irrigation, waterscape engineering, gas, natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas buried hoseline systems; Other applications include oil field, mining, chemical industry and other industrial raw material transportation, as well as central air conditioning system hose. Compared with steel hoses, PE hoses are simple in construction and have certain flexibility. More importantly, they do not need anti-corrosion treatment, which will save a lot of processes. The disadvantage is that the mechanical property is not as good as that of steel hose. During construction, special attention shall be paid to the safety spacing of thermal heating, and it shall not be exposed to the air and sunlight, and it is sensitive to chemicals. It shall prevent the leakage of sewage hose from causing damage.

PVC hose

PVC hose is mainly composed of PVC, which has good tensile and compressive strength and excellent corrosion resistance. The price is the cheapest among all kinds of plastic hoses. But its flexibility is not as good as other plastic hoses, and it is brittle at low temperature. It is mainly used for residential water supply and drainage, industrial and mining water supply and drainage, agricultural irrigation, exhaust hose, wire conduit, rainwater hose, industrial anti-corrosion hose, etc

However, after the polymerization of PVC hose, the product contains residual chlorine, which is toxic. To form PVC hoses, stabilizers must be added to prevent the decomposition of plastics at high temperature. Lead salts are cheap and have good thermal stability. They can enhance the heat resistance, toughness and ductility of PVC and become one of the commonly used stabilizers for PVC hoses. After PVC hoses are used for a long time, lead can be separated from the hoses, and even lead containing powder can be formed on the plastic surface, which is harmful to human body and the environment.

PVC hose adopts TS (bonding) interface, and the adhesive used is difficult to ensure non-toxic. At the same time, the adhesive will affect the taste and water quality of water.
