Fuel hoses

Fuel hoses and oil hoses are hoses used to transport petroleum materials, i.e. the liquid products of the oil refining process (mainly fuels and oils). Oil hoses are used for the transport of crude oil itself and its intermediates. Fuel hoses and oil hoses are usually made from NBR, CR, and EPDM rubber, as well as plastics. In addition, depending on the application, they have reinforcement in high-tensile materials, such as steel or fabric. Fuel hoses are used in oil extraction and processing, as well as the loading and unloading of liquid petroleum products (e.g. on tankers, in ports as tanker hoses). Fuel hoses and oil hoses are also used for oil and fuel distribution, refuelling, industrial processes, and many other related jobs. In our range, you will find only the highest quality oil and fuel hoses.

Fuel hoses - Oil hoses

How are fuel hoses constructed?

Fuel hoses and oil hoses are distinguished from other types of hoses in that they are more flexible, supple, and relatively lightweight. In addition, in most cases, they come in a low-pressure version so that the ends can be fixed with hose clamps.

As for the structure itself, the fuel hose or oil hose has a fairly standard structure, as it consists of three layers:

  • inner - adapted to the medium to be transmitted; 
  • reinforcement - in the form of a steel, fabric, or plastic braid, which ensures the strength of the hose; 
  • outer - adapted to environmental conditions and resistant to mechanical damage.

There are also hoses for fuel and oil that allow the medium to be sucked in, i.e. work under negative pressure. They are distinguished from other hoses by the fact that they have additional reinforcement in the form of a spiral (usually made of steel wire or plastic).

What should you consider when choosing fuel hoses?

When you choose an oil and fuel hose, consider first and foremost its durability in terms of the medium it needs to transport.

Consider the resistance of the fuel hose to the amount of aromatic hydrocarbons in the fuel, as well as to modern fuel and oil additives. These are primarily unleaded fuel, biodegradable fuel, or transformer oils.

Consider the requirements for protection against static build-up. This is particularly important in explosive atmospheres.

It is also important to mention that there is also a special oil and fuel hose and a high-temperature oil hose. It is used wherever a standard hose would not be able to cope, such as with motors and other heat sources.

What are the types of materials used in fuel hoses?

Oil and fuel hoses are most often made of rubber, less often of plastic. Among the most popular production materials, we distinguish:

  • NBR (acrylonitrile butadiene rubber) - a rubber compound that is resistant to oils, fuels, and fats and, in combination with PVC, also resistant to ozone;
  • CR (chloroprene rubber) - a rubber compound that is extremely resistant to ozone, weather conditions, and many chemicals, as well as being inert to flames and a wide range of temperatures; 
  • EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber) - a rubber compound highly resistant to high and low temperatures, oils, acids, and alkalis, as well as weather conditions (including ozone and UV radiation); 
  • PVC (polyvinyl chloride) - a plastic material that is characterized by excellent chemical and mechanical resistance.

These are, admittedly, not all, but the leading materials used in the manufacture of fuel- and oil-resistant hoses.

FAQ

Is the silicone fuel hose suitable for oil transport?

arrow-up

No, silicone hose is not suitable for transporting oil. This is because silicone is a material that degrades when it comes into contact with oil. Therefore, using the hose for this purpose will sooner or later lead to its destruction.

Is the fuel rubber hose oil resistant?

arrow-up

Yes, rubber fuel hoses have been developed to be resistant not only to petroleum or petrol, but also to oil. Therefore, they can handle these situations without any problems. However, just to be sure, read the hose specifications and the manufacturer's recommendations.

Which to choose: a 3/4 fuel hose or a 1-inch fuel hose?

arrow-up

Remember that the larger the diameter of the hose, the lower the pressure. Therefore, narrower hoses will work better when you want to maintain a higher working pressure. If you need help with choosing the right hose, please get support from our specialists.
