5/8-in. and 1/2-in. ID bonded thermoplastic hose

Consider these factors when purchasing using bonded thermoplastic hose in high pressure jetting operations:

Operating (“working”) pressure. Thermoplastic hose sold by Harben California have operating pressure ratings of 3,000 to 5,000 psi. The minimum operating pressure of thermoplastic hose should always match or exceed the rated maximum pressure developed by the water pump installed on the jetter.

Safety pressure. U.S. hose manufacturers adhere to minimum safety pressure ratings equal to 2.5 : 1 above the rated operating pressure for all brands of thermoplastic hose. Each of these manufacturers produce hose with premium quality features, typically measured by safety pressure ratings that exceed industry standards. Examples are Piranha’s SHBK series hose with a 3:0 : 1 safety pressure rating and Parker S508 series hose with a 4:0 : 1 safety pressure rating.

Hose covers are constructed from a poly-olefin blended material resistant to hydrolysis and supplied in blue, red, black and lime green colors.

If you’re purchasing new jetter hose, ask a few questions:

  • How do operating and burst pressure ratings compare for the hose brands you’re considering?
  • What material is used for the braided reinforcement? For example, resilient aramid or Kevlar braid is designed to readily expand and contract with changes in pressure and may extend the useful life of the hose and/or offer higher burst pressure ratings than hose reinforced with dual poly braid.
  • Have you found it necessary to frequently repair or replace hose because of damage to the hose cover? Cut and abrasion resistant covers are available to reduce exposure to superficial damage. Also, be sure to purchase and use a leader hose.
  • If you repair hose your own hose, will you need to replace existing dies and swage fittings in order to repair the new hose? The OD of the hose being repaired must conform to specifications established by each manufacturer for all dies and swage fittings used in repairs.

All hose sold by Harben California meets Waste Equipment Technology Association (WASTEC) specifications.

Leader Hose

Shown: Harben “Tuffskin”, 1/2-in. ID x 10-ft. long. Available in 5-ft. long increments from 5-ft. to 50-ft. Safety orange color. Each hose is fitted with 1/2-in. male NPT and 1/2-in. female swivel NPT ends.

Not using a leader hose? Leader hose protects expensive sewer and lateral line hose from cuts and abrasions when nozzles are pushed into cleanouts and drain lines. Importantly, leader hose warns operators that a nozzle is about to be pulled from a drain or sewer line so that pressure and flow rates may be reduced; then shut off.
