Minimum Bend Radius and What it Means for Hoses

Hockey is a major sport – well, at least here in Canada. What you may not know is that hoses and hockey have one thing in common: both involve lots of bending. A player needs to bend to drive the puck and, hopefully, that bending will lead to goals and cheers from the crowd; bending for hoses rarely gets any praise, but it sure can lead to failure if not properly done. Hoses can bend – they would not be of much use if they did not, but the questions worth asking are ‘how much’ and ‘under what circumstances.’ If a hose is bent beyond a certain limit, even once, minor to severe consequences can ensue. In this article we are going to explore what is a minimum bend radius and what effect it has on hoses.
