      What is Plicord Flexwing Petroleum Hose?

      Plicord Flexwing is an industrial hose designed for the transfer of petroleum-based products. Flexwing hoses incorporate many features, such as nitrile synthetic rubber and Continental ContiTech Insta-Lock couplings. Plicord Flexwing hoses are available in an array of specifications to meet most industrial transfer hose needs.

      Application

      Flexwing industrial hoses can be implemented in both tanker truck service applications, along with interior plant operations. The Flexwing hose is meant for transferring fluids, such as gasoline, oil, and ethanol, up to 50% aromatic content. Plicord Flexwing is made for pressure, gravity flow, and full-suction service, making it useful in a variety of applications.

      Who Made It?

      The Plicord Flexwing is made by Continental ContiTech, formerly known as Goodyear. Continental ContiTech is known as a leader in the market for rubber and plastics technology. They produce an assortment of high quality components for automobiles and industrial equipment.

      Plicord Flexwing Hose

      Improved Flexibility – The Plicord Flexwing Petroleum series of industrial hoses incorporate a spiral wire helix, which makes the hose more flexible than most standard industrial hoses.

      This increased flexibility means that the Flexwing Petroleum hose can accommodate more applications than ever. Furthermore, the wire helix also adds strength to the industrial hose.

      Lighter Weight – Industrial hoses are often heavy and cumbersome, making them difficult to use. The Flexwing Petroleum is made from nitrile synthetic rubber, which not only has a high resistance to oil; it is also light-weight, making for easier operation and portability. In addition, the hose is wrapped in smooth, black synthetic rubber, which helps keep the materials light.

      Brand Improvement – Industrial hose misidentification can lead to equipment downtime and could result in possible operator injury. Continental ContiTech has taken this into consideration with their Plicord Flexwing Petroleum hoses, and thus redesigned the branding using brighter colors, so that the hoses can be easily identified.

      Eaton Hose Crimp Machines

      Hose crimping is a vital part of hydraulic hose construction. Without a proper crimp the hose can fail by either over crimping or under crimping. In either case, this can lead to a dangerous and expensive situation. Eaton offers several models of crimping machines that are designed to ensure the best crimp possible.

      ET1000

      The ET1000 is a portable crimper from Eaton that is built to crimp all 1-wire and 2-wire braid hose fittings of up to 1-1/4 inch in diameter and all 4-wire spiral fittings of up to 1 inch.

      The ET1000 is the most economical of all the crimpers offered by Eaton and one of the easiest to operate. The ET1000 uses a similar design style to that of the FT1370, but it does not use the ProCrimp die cages.

      Instead the ET1000 implements a 2-piece half collet assembly for crimping. The ET1000 can be made to operate by a hand pump, air or hydraulic pump, or electrical power, making this crimper very versatile. 

      FT1380

      The Aeroquip PROCRIMP FT1380 is designed to crimp more than 20 types of Eaton hose up to a diameter of 1 ¼ inch. The FT1380 features a digital display that allows users to set crimping specifications and program up to 10 crimp settings, as seen on this video:

      The electronic controls also ensure that each crimp is accurate and solid, which helps to ensure that every hose fitting has been properly secured to the hose. 

      FT1390

      The PROCRIMP FT1390 by Aeroquip is a stationary crimping machine, designed to crimp Eaton hose fittings up to 2 inches in diameter, including hose models that are made from 4 and 6 spiral wire.

      The FT1390 features an electronic keypad that allows the user to specify the crimp diameter to ensure a solid crimp is achieved. Additional features of this Eaton hose fitting crimper include crimp die cages and a backstop fitting locator. 

      ET3000

      The Aeroquip PROCRIMP FT1380 is designed to crimp more than 20 types of Eaton hose up to a diameter of 1 ¼ inch. The FT1380 features a digital display that allows users to set crimping specifications and program up to 10 crimp settings, as seen on this video:

      The electronic controls also ensure that each crimp is accurate and solid, which helps to ensure that every hose fitting has been properly secured to the hose. 

      As seen in the video below:

      The Eaton ET3000 hose crimper has two ergonomic handles and a solid frame, which make this model easy to transport. In order to make the ET3000 even more accommodating, Eaton has developed it so that it can be powered using either a hand pump, air, hydraulics, or a 110-volt electrical connection.

      Industrial Hose Insta-Lock Coupling

      Industrial Hose Insta-Lock Coupling

      Industrial Hose Insta-Lock Coupling

      The Insta-Lock coupling from Continental Contitech is an innovative hose coupling system designed to work with Continental brand industrial hoses. The Insta-Lock coupling system utilizes 10 improved design features that were developed by Continental after years of research and in-the-field testing.

      Design Features

      • Automatic Locking Handles – The patented automatically locking handles designed by Continental Contitech ensure a secure fit between connections, without the hassle of manual locking handles. The Insta-Lock couplings locking handles simple design decreases the chances of dirt build-up that can sometimes lead to a weak connection.
      • No-Snag Design – One of the most common problems associated with industrial hose couplings is snagging caused by coupling rings. The Insta-Lock coupling has pull rings that fit into designated “Lock Zones” on the coupling, thus reducing the chances that the hose will get snagged when it is being dragged or pulled.
      • Lock-Out Padlock Holes – The innovative hose couplings from Contitech allow for the insertion of a padlock to ensure that the coupling remains connected if the handle pins fail or are accidentally removed.
      • Ergonomic Handles – Locking the handles of some industrial hose couplings can be difficult and hard on the hands. However, the Insta-Lock system comes an ergonomic handle design that is more comfortable to lock than competitor’s models, thanks to specially designed “palm pads.”
      • Damage-Resistant Design – Industrial hoses are often subjected to a lot of inadvertent abuse, and this can result in hose system failure. Continental Contitech has taken notice of this and, in turn, has engineered their industrial hose Insta-Lock couplings to withstand rugged conditions. The V-shaped struts on the coupling are made to boost strength and reduce the change of breakage due to the coupling being repeatedly dropped.

       

      • Improved Serration Design – It is not uncommon for industrial hoses to become detached from their couplings because the serration inside the coupling does not grip the hose properly. The Insta-Lock coupling helps eliminate the chance of a hose disconnect by utilizing a serrated profile that meets ASTM specifications and better grips the hose on the interior of the coupling.
      • Damage-Resistant Pull Rings – Pull rings are a vital part of industrial hose couplings. They are used in the connection and disconnection of the coupling and are often subjected to abuse from dragging. Continental Contitech has taken notice of this and therefore have built their pull rings out of heavy duty spring steel. In addition, there is a pull ring “lock zone” on the coupling to better keep it out of harm’s way.
      • “Hose Stop” Feature – When an industrial hose is crimped it can begin to elongate causing the hose to weaken and even loosen from its fitting. The Insta-Lock coupling is designed in a way that will ensure the hose does not get deformed when crimped.
      • Ergonomic Handles – Locking the handles of some industrial hose couplings can be difficult and hard on the hands. However, the Insta-Lock system comes an ergonomic handle design that is more comfortable to lock than competitor’s models, thanks to specially designed “palm pads.”
      • Precision Machined Hose Shanks – The shanks on the Insta-Lock coupling have been machined in a way so that they better hold the hose in place, whether it is banded or crimped. This will prevent the hose from slipping off the shank if it becomes stretched.

       

      • Smooth Flow Design – The flow of fluid is important when using an industrial hose and in some cases the design of the hose can impede the flow. This is not the case with the Continental Contitech Insta-Lock coupling as it has been specially designed to maximize flow rate and reduce fluid turbulence.
