Fluid Transfer Products
In addition to unique, highly specialized fluid transfer products, many of the products RB Royal designs and manufactures are fluid connector products . This section provides an overview of both. The primary compositions of assembled lines are either flexible hose, metal tubing or a combination assembly – commonly called ‘hybrid’ assemblies. Hybrid assemblies combine the unique properties of each composition to provide a superior solution to particularly demanding applications. RB Royal engineers will assist in reviewing all application challenges and recommend a solution that is best fit for the job. Typical considerations for assembled lines are listed below.
Benefits of flexible hose assemblies:
- Dampen vibration / reduce noise
- Less engineering involvement in some applications
- Easier to accommodate long lengths
- Easy to manufacture and assemble
- Hose is a natural insulator
- Can absorb shock / impulse in fluid systems
- Better accommodation of large tolerances between connections
Benefits of hard tube assemblies:
- Longer life than hose
- Capable of higher pressures
- Thermal properties – better heat dissipation
- Potentially fewer leak paths than a hose assembly
- Greater abrasion resistance
- Resistance to fire and extreme environments
- Streamline appearance - improved aesthetics
- Less room requirements in tight spaces
- Capable of acting as rigid support for wiring, etc.
- Tube material generally costs less per foot than hose
- Retains its shape where hose may shift and sag over time
- Considerably less weight
- Generally a better surface for paint
- Longer runs of tube would require less support than hose
- More consistent I.D. (in critical flow rate situations) and O.D.
- Minimal expansion under pressure
- Capable of much tighter bend radii – precise routings
- Extreme temperature resistance/ tolerance
- Greater chemical resistance
- Will not deteriorate and potentially contaminate the system
Flexible fuel lines utilize specially compounded hose to safely function with various fuel types.
