Eaton announces a new line of steam hose that was engineered to provide maximum safety while delivering unmatched levels of performance. Eaton’s new Steam Slayer hose combines a specially blended chlorobutyl tube with high-tensile steel wire reinforcement and an Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) cover to produce a hose with a 10:1 burst safety factor.
“Steam applications are inherently dangerous,” noted Chris Schwab, lead engineer, Eaton. “The Steam Slayer hoses are consistently dependable in demanding commercial and industrial applications. We’ve combined improved flexibility and unmatched durability to provide maximum safety in steam transfer applications like cleaning, processing and melting glues and waxes.”
Side by side testing shows Steam Slayer hoses are superior to other steam hoses. Steam Slayer withstands more than 2,000 hours of saturated steam at 407°F. That’s more than twice as long as the competitive hoses tested.
Steam Slayer is available in ½”, ¾” and 1” ID sizes. Three color options are offered including the traditional red and black barber pole stripe, a red with yellow ink transfer layline and a black covered hose.
