|HBD Industries, Inc. recommends a hose for its normal service as
outlined in this catalog. Other applications should be referred to
your respective marketing representative.
|whipping hose, high pressure or high velocity discharge, chemical|
contact, high temperature materials, explosion or fire.
|In any application there may be an inherent risk of bodily injury or
property damage and the user is responsible for implementation of
adequate safety precautions. It is the responsibility of the buyer to
advise the user of proper instructions for safe use and/or precau-
tions and to warn the user of consequences of failure to heed such
instruction. Should a hose assembly fall during use with pressure,
injurious and/or damaging chemicals, elevated temperature materi-
als, explosives or flammable materials, then serious bodily injury
or destruction of property could result from impelled couplings,
|In known high risk areas, it is recommended that hose inspections|
be performed at frequent intervals related to the risk factor. Hose
with obvious damage should be scrapped or tested before placing
in use. These inspections should include tube condition, cover con-
dition, leaking or slipped couplings and proof test.
Detailed information concerning storage, care and maintenance may
be found in the Hose Handbook published by The Rubber Manu-
facturers Association, 1901 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washing-
ton, D.C. 20006 and in SAE Recommended Practices J 1273
