Flexible Hoses

  • What Type of Hose Can Be Used for CO2 Transfer – The Evolution

    In the earlier times, the hoses manufactured with rubber were designed for hydraulic uses. However, when these hoses were exposed to carbon dioxide, they could not resist deterioration. On inspecting the reason, it was found that there were reinforcing braids and fittings made from carbon steel, which is susceptible to corrosion from the carbonic acid that is formed from a combination of CO2 and moisture. This resulted in developing cracks in the hoses due to cold temperatures associated with the CO2 transfer.

    Some time later, stainless steel hoses were introduced. This attempt was better than the previous ones in remaining flexible in the cold but lead to much harder and heavier hoses. Additionally, the corrugation inside the metal hose could trap solid CO2 ice, interrupting the CO2 transfer.

    The latest innovation was Polar Hoses, which were specifically built for bulk CO2 transfer. The elastomer used in the manufacturing of these hoses was found to be perfectly compatible with CO2 and low temperatures. This CO2 hose has stainless steel braids and corrosive fittings that offer them durability and strength. Polar hoses are light-weight, flexible and strong pipes, proving to be the best for bulk CO2 transfer.
