In the industrial gas market, there are a variety of hoses used in services that range from -452˚F and a few psi, to 100˚F and 6,000 psi. Proper inspection and testing of these hoses is necessary to maintain the reliability and safety of the operation. There are a number of inspection and testing frequencies possible, and each hose type/service condition will assist in defining this frequency. Daily use hoses may require more frequent inspection, and if it is in more severe service, that may further shrink the inspection interval. It is therefore pertinent to review the variations between different types of hoses.
