Description

8MM ACETYLENE GAS HOSE (RED) WITH FITTINGS INC CHECK VALVE

A red 8mm gas hose designed for the delivery of Acetylene gas.  This acetylene hose has an inner diameter of 8mm and comes in either 5, 10 or 20m length.  A 3/8″ check valve (one way) safety device is fitted one end and a hose tail and 3/8″ LH nut the other.

Assembled and tested conforming to ISO 1256:2006, manufactured from EPDM compound for high abrasion and weather resistance, with high compression fittings and flame trap hose check valves.

 

Further Information:

These fitted hoses are complete, ready-made gas-hose solutions, which remove the need for time-consuming hose nut, tail and check-valve attachment. They are manufactured to a level of quality beyond that achievable when manually constructed by hand, with the inclusion of high compression fittings at each end of the hose to ensure reliable, gas-tight connections to the hose check valve (at the regulator end) and hose-tail / hose-nut configuration (at the torch end).

Fitted hoses and hose sets are available in 6mm bore diameter with either 1/4” or 3/8” fittings, and 8mm or 10mm bore diameters and 3/8” fittings at each end. Blue hoses are used with oxygen, red hoses are used with acetylene, orange hoses are used with propane gas.

 

Do I Need New Oxy/Fuel Hoses? – CP7 Guidance:

  • The correct colour of hose should be used for the gas passing through it.  The composition of the hose is designed specifically for the gas type.
  • The entire length of hose should be undamaged
  • The hose should be marked to the correct standard:
    • BS EN 559 Rubber
    • BS EN 1327 Thermoplastic
    • BS EN ISO 14113 Rubber and plastic hose assemblies (450 bar)
  • Hose connections
    • BS EN 560 Hose connections
    • BS EN 561 Quick action couplings
  • No reusable worm drive clips such as jubilee clips
  •  Free from contamination – oils, greases etc.
  • PTFE tape should not be used.

 

Single fitted hoses also available as well as unfitted hose for acetylene, propane and oxygen.  Please call or email for price and availability.
