2 Braid Hose
2-braid blast hoses have a more durable outer casing than the Supa hose but remain more flexible than the 4-ply. Due to the thicker outer casing, two braid hoses are a preferred option for industrial settings where external scuffing is to be expected. These particular hoses are often used in rail yards and shipyards because of their durable design and ability to stand up to on-site maintenance stress and abrasions.
The Clemco 2-braid hose is composed of a SBR rubber treated with static-dissipating compound. Depending on the size of the hose selected, the inner rubber wall may be up to 5/16-inches thick. Its outer casing is a double layer of cloth and rubber-impregnated winding, giving the hose its durability. The pin-pricked outer layer on Clemco hoses prevents the buildup of air pockets in the reinforced casing, which appear in hoses as “bubbles.”
Clemco 2-braid hoses can be used with any properly sized couplings and nozzle holders and can attach to any blast machine rated at up to 175 psi. Although more flexible than the 4-ply hose, applications using the 2-braid hose for its durable casing may also attach a 10 to 15-foot length of Supa hose for easier maneuvering. It may be used with all common blast media.
