Temperature Effects

Kanaflex conducts tests at 72°F to determine the recommended minimum bending radius, working pressures, and vacuum ratings. Straight lengths of hose are used during testing. If the ambient temperatures, or application induced temperatures, vary from the 72°F baseline, stated specifications and ratings for the hose will change. If the hose application and placement includes bends, the stated specifications and ratings for the hose will also change.

Please take these variance guidelines into account when determining the suitability of a hose for a specific application.
