ContiTech Optimizes Hot Steam Hose Range
With the DAMPF TRIX® 5000 and the DAMPF TRIX® 6000, ContiTech Fluid Technology has optimized its range of hoses for transporting saturated steam. "The hoses have proven themselves to be constantly reliable and safe in demanding, continuous industrial and commercial use. They are DIN EN ISO 6134certified and stateoftheart," states Willi Emde, head of the ContiTech Industrial Hoses segment. Thanks to ContiTech's expertise in materials, technology and design, evident from over 100 years of experience in manufacturing highquality hoses, the DAMPF TRIX® hoses stand out for their impressive product characteristics, such as extraordinary flexibility, electrical conductivity and high resistance to temperature, weathering, ozone and UV radiation. But that's not all. In a prolonged pressure test, results showed the DAMPF TRIX® 6000 to be clearly superior to comparable hose types.
DAMPF TRIX® 6000 interior and exterior made from high quality EPDM
ContiTech has developed the highly temperatureresistant DAMPF TRIX® 6000 especially for the reliable and safe transport of hot steam in the chemical and petrochemical industry, refineries, the construction industry, market gardens and shipbuilding. Its high quality EPDM, extremely heatresistant inner and outer layers allow the hose to transport pure, saturated water steam of up to plus 210°C at 18 bar, and up to plus 220°C at 23 bar for short periods of time. Thanks to its wellbalanced design, the DAMPF TRIX® 6000 can do this for the whole of its long service life. The two galvanized tensile members make the pressure bearer particularly corrosionresistant, while the optimization of materials has significantly improved the popcorning resistance of the hose's inner layer. "Quality ensures safety, and over time it really pays off," emphasizes Willi Emde. "Burst hoses caused by premature material fatigue can lead to high expense as a result of production losses and personal injury."
DAMPF TRIX® 5000 pressure bearer made of highstrength aramid
Just like the DAMPF TRIX® 6000, the second of ContiTech's steam hoses, the DAMPF TRIX® 5000, also offers maximum safety when transporting saturated steam. The highstrength aramid pressure bearer gives the DAMPF TRIX® 5000 a much higher prolonged temperature resistance than conventional textile materials. With prolonged resistance to temperatures of 120°C for hot water and plus 164°C for steam, the DAMPF TRIX® 5000 is ideal for heating up tank cars, as well as for use in the chemical and petrochemical industry, commercial construction and market gardens.
