Steam Safety Message

Handling steam is a very hazardous process. Using care and some safety precautions can minimize or eliminate personal or property damage.

SELECTING AND USING STEAM HOSES

Ensure steam hose is clearly identified as a steam hose. It should have embossed branding stating working pressure, EN specification and temperature rating

• Only use recommended steam hose couplings and clamps on the hose

• Make sure working pressure and temperature is not exceeded

• Do not allow hose to remain under pressure when not in use

• Avoid excess bending or flexing of hose near the coupling. Straight line operation is preferred. If bends are necessary as part of operation, spring guards may help

MAINTENANCE OF STEAM HOSE

• Drain hose after each use to avoid tube damage before hose is put back in operation, to avoid "pop corning" of the tube

• Check tightness of clamp bolts after each use

• Check to see if clamp halves are touching. If they are, re-fit hose with smaller clamps to ensure proper tightness or grip around hose. If in doubt contact Arco Hose

• Periodically inspect hoses, looking for cover blisters and lumps

• Check for kinked areas that could damage hose

• Do not store hose over hooks

• Steam hose lying on metal racks or installed around steel piping will dry out the hose, causing tube and cover cracking
