Supporting Cleanup Efforts When Flooding Hits: The Power of Suction Hoses and Discharge Hoses for PumpsFebruary 12, 2024
More often than not, your hoses take a beating in your day-to-day operations. Dragging a new hose on abrasive flooring, dropping it on hard surfaces, scratching or nicking it on sharp objects, or tangling it into knots could quickly end its life. Rather than purchasing a new hose more often than necessary, it is essential to invest in hose bumpers.
Hose bumpers are small, circular objects that fit on the end of your hoses to protect them from normal wear and tear and particularly harsh environments. Various hose bumpers can easily fit any hose in your facility and save you money and time in the long run.
Hoses are constantly being connected and disconnected during a typical shift. Hose bumpers can decrease the risk of thread damage or product contamination by protecting the hose end. But that is not the only benefit of using hose bumpers.
Protection and Safety
Hoses are constantly moving around the facility to transfer materials daily. Hose bumpers protect your hoses from abrasion and wear and tear from constant rubbing against other materials. They can also absorb shock when being dragged across surfaces.
Hose bumpers can prevent injuries caused by rogue hoses. They help aid users in controlling the movement of the hose, making it easier to avoid injuries.
In high-pressure situations, the last thing you need is faulty equipment. Hose bumpers can benefit you by keeping your operations running smoothly. Bumpers protect the outside and connections of your hoses, allowing your facility to maintain operations at all times.
Processing can be noisy. The loudness can impair your and your employees' hearing while risking miscommunication due to the noise. Hose bumpers allow for a quieter work environment, especially when your hoses are dropped or dragged throughout the day.
Purchasing new hoses to replace broken ones can quickly get expensive. By implementing hose bumpers, you get peace of mind from their ability to resist damage from harsh environments. They are crucial to protecting your equipment and saving you unnecessary costs.
Ease of Maintenance and Versatility
Generally, hose bumpers are easy to install and replace, reducing maintenance time and keeping your hoses fit for as long as possible. Hose bumpers come in several sizes, types, and materials. Metal and silicon are the most popular materials used for hose bumpers.
During cleanup, hose bumpers enhance the cleanup or washdown process. They elevate the hose from the floor, preventing a dam effect during washdowns. This allows water to flow directly to the drains, easing the process altogether.
Kinking and Tangling Prevention
Hose bumpers keep hoses rigid, providing easy transportation of materials and keeping the flow moving.
