Hose Tubing

There are many similarities between hose and tubing, but the most common perception is that hoses are generally larger diameter compared to tubing. Most hose tube is in the range 4mm to 16mm, whereas hose tends to be in imperial sizes from 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, 3/4″ up tp 3″ or even 4″. obviously there are exceptions but our staff can usually solve most requirements.

Nylon Tubing

Nylon 12 tubing has become the go-to choice in various industries that require handling higher pressure or heat. Its exceptional characteristics, including strength, lightweight nature, flexibility, and chemical resistance, make it highly sought after. The tubing’s semi-rigid properties make it possible to achieve higher flow rates and working pressure with a thinner wall. This material adheres to Australian Standards, ensuring its reliability and performance. It boasts a minimum burst pressure of 1000psi/6.9 MPa and a working pressure of 250psi/1.7 MPa, providing a 4:1 safety factor. A 3:1 safety factor can be applied for fluid transfer applications, further enhancing its safety and efficiency.

Polyethylene Tubing

Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) tubing is manufactured using 100% non-toxic components. Its inert properties and adherence to FDA regulations make it an excellent choice for piping applications in the food, water, and beverage industries. However, it is essential to note that LDPE tubing is best suited for areas where heat exposure is minimal and direct sunlight can be avoided. This versatile material is widely preferred for various purposes such as pneumatics, drain piping, laboratory use, and chemical transfer. LDPE tubing offers a cost-effective solution without compromising on safety and quality.

PVC Hose

We exclusively stock PVC hoses of superior quality. While lower-priced hoses may be available in the market, they often contain PVC resin with a high proportion of inexpensive and ineffective fillers or may lack proper reinforcement. These cheaper brands become stiff, brittle, and prone to punctures or blowouts. Through experience, it has become evident that opting for the cheapest option is often not a wise investment. Therefore, we prioritise offering reliable PVC hoses that ensure durability and longevity, providing our customers with a cost-effective solution in the long run.

Even though the terms are frequently used interchangeably, there are differences between tubes, pipes, and hoses. There are three major differences between hoses, tubes, and pipes:
  • Standards and applications
  • For plastic hoses or tubes, hoses tend to describe the larger diameter products and tubes are more for pneumatics or workstations.
  • Material composition and manufacturing procedure
