All Bioflex Ultra hose assemblies are labelled with the following information:
*Note any restrictions on working pressure resulting from elevated temperatures.
This information is normally laser-etched on to a loose stainless steel Ring mounted on the hose.
In some cases, at the discretion of Aflex Hose, the information may be etched on to a thin stainless steel plate which is clamped to the hose, or on to the end fitting ferrule at one end. This may be necessary for example, if the customer requires additional information which may not fit on to a Ring.
Customers may specify which labelling system they require, and may request additional information on the label.
This system is only applicable to the Silicone (SI) rubber covered grades of Bioflex Ultra that have a stainless steel (SS) braid.
A label and/or Colour Code is placed around the silicone cover of the hose and then encapsulated by a transparent silicone that is formed into a thin streamlined cover.
Note: 1/2” size, Colour Code only, no text.
This system is applicable to all grades of Bioflex Ultra hose.
A coloured PTFE spiral strip is wound on to the hose.
It can be left loose, or it can be encapsulated under a transparent, heat-shrunk polyolefin sleeve.
