Plumbing hoses include tubing and conduit for connecting water lines and fixtures. Flexible metal hoses absorb vibration and distribute strain. They can be used with air compressors, liquid and vacuum pumps, and pump suction discharge lines. Flexible PTFE braided hose is compatible with 99% of fluids and can be used in petrochemical plants and chemical and steam applications. Stainless steel hose assemblies are used for high-pressure gas lines. Hose stations are used in industrial washdown applications in dairy, food-processing, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical plants. The stations have steam- and water-mixing valves for water temperature control.
