BLUE THUNDER® Hose | Parker 7373T Series

BLUE THUNDER - UHMWPE Chemical Hose - Series 7373T


Series 7373T is a high pressure, high temperature suction and discharge hose designed to handle approximately 98% of commonly used acids, chemicals and solvents. The ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) tube will not leach into and contaminate the product being conveyed, and features a temperature rating to 250°F (121°C). The corrugated hose construction incorporates a dual wire helix that provides full suction capability, kink resistance, flexibility for ease of handling, and a path to conduct a static electrical charge to ground. The cover is resistant to abrasion, mild chemicals and ozone. Series 7373T is available in 200-foot continuous lengths.

WARNINGS!
„ It is the responsibility of the user to determine if the hose is suitable for the application. Most chemical resistance guides are based on temperatures of 70°F (21°C). Elevated temperatures can change the chemical resistance ratings. Many chemicals will become more aggressive as temperatures increase, reducing the ability of hose compounds to withstand them. Contact Parker for chemical compatibility data at elevated temperatures. If no data exists, users are required to perform compatibility testing at the desired temperature.
„ At operating temperatures of 125°F and above, only permanently attached couplings should be installed. At any operating temperature, couplings attached with bands or clamps may reduce the working pressure of the hose assembly to less than the maximum rated working pressure of the hose. Refer to the NAHAD Industrial Hose Assembly Guidelines.
„ Do not use with internally expanded couplings. Refer to chemical hoses that incorporate a MXLPE tube.
