Hose Nominal Size
The nominal inside
diameter of the hose.
of Braid Layers
Indicated the number of braid layers required to achieve the pressure
Nominal outside diameter of the hose or the hose and indicated number
of braid layers. This column is usually used to determine the proper braid
sleeve/ferrule or the cover dimensions.
Centerline Bend Radius
The hose may be bent to a radius not less than the indicated amount without
permanent deformation. The type of flexing can be static or dynamic. Hose
in a static bend is in a non-moving application. The dynamic application
allows for random or intermittent flexing.
Pressure ratings are shown in three categories:
Working pressure is the maximum pressure the hose should be subjected
to on a continuous basis.
Test pressure is the maximum amount of pressure the hose can be
subjected to during testing without possible deformation of the hose
Burst pressure is the pressure at which the hose assembly can be
expected to fail.
of 4:1 is maintained by OmegaFlex on all published pressures.
Published pressures are shown in psig at 70°F. Reduction of pressure
ratings should be used by the proper application of temperature correction
factors. See Temperature
Correction Factors for more information.
