Acid-Chemical Hose “MUSTANG”
RECOMMENDED FOR: Tank truck, barge, ship, or storage tank transfer of a variety of chemical products. Mustang contains a wire helix for full suction capability, as well as for routing hoses through tight bends. Its Modified Cross-linked Polyethylene tube stock is “best in class” for maintaining a tight seal with stainless steel fittings, and is de- signed for cleaning with “open end” 50 PSI steam or in a bath containing 10% (NaOH) @ 212°F (100°C). Cleaning in place (CIP) methods may be used. Not recommended for “closed steam” cleaning. Applications include over 950 basic chemicals that are building blocks for numerous chemicals used in a variety of indus-tries. Reference Gates Chemical Resistance Table on page 152 for proper hose selection.
