VARIOUS TYPES OF HOSE ENDS

Plain End


All Hose Construction elements are exposed (including wire, if wire is used as a reinforcing member.). The hose always has the same inside diameter throughout. In the case of certain hand-built specifications having wire reinforcement, the wire and fabric reinforcement are not expose. All vertical spiral hoses is available only with plain ends. Horizontal spiral and wrapped ply machine built hose is furnished with plain ends unless otherwise specified in the price list.


Built-In Nipple End


The hose end is integrally built around and bonded to the nipple body. The hose reinforcing materials are also anchored to the nipple body. The nipples used are generally fabricated from pipe. Nipples made from standard pipe will be full bore only when pipe 12" and under is used since nominal pipe sizes over 12" are described by pipe OD and not ID. Available only in hand-built hose construction.

Swaged End


Primarily used on petroleum, Oil Suction & Discharge, dock hose as an alternative to bulk it-in nipples. The steel (carbon or stainless) stem/coupling accommodates threaded, slip-on or welded flanged ends. Stem/coupling attached to hose with swaged steel ferrule over the cover.

Enlarged End


The hose end is enlarged to accommodate the outside diameter of the shank of a fitting plus the depth of the shank. The helical wire is terminated at the enlarged end. The inside diameter of a "standard" enlarged end is the same dimension as the outside diameter of the same nominal pipe size.(Example-6" ID hose enlarged to 65/8" at the end, handles a 6"size pipe which has a 65/8"OD.) Normally used in hand-built hose constructions.
