The Industrial Hoses Report will explore innovative solutions to important problems in hoses such as deterioration of the rubber parts in hoses, lamination of hoses, enhancing physical properties, adding RFID etc. The report also covers key companies, startups, merger & acquisitions, market size & growth report of industrial hoses.
The Industrial Hoses Report demonstrates Signicent’s research to decipher innovations that can overcome challenges faced by companies making/ using Industrial Hoses.
Cross linked Acrylic Rubber to Enhance Physical Properties Of Hoses
Deterioration of the rubber parts in internal combustion engines has been of concern in recent years.
To provide an acrylic rubber capable of obtaining a cross-linked acrylic rubber that has improved heat aging resistance, oil resistance, cold resistance, and deteriorated engine oil resistance.
- The glass transition temperature of the acrylic rubber is −20° C. or less.
- Change ratio in volume after a cross-linked rubber of the acrylic rubber is immersed in IRM903 oil at 150±2° C. for 72 hours is 0 to 100%.
- Change ratio in weight after the cross-linked rubber of the acrylic rubber is immersed in hot water at 150±2° C. for 96 hours and dried is −5.0 to 0%.
RFID Wireless System in Hoses
RFID Wireless System Using Resonance Freq. for Breach Detection in Hoses
The presence of seawater in marine structures such as flexible pipes can result in a reduction of their operational life. The positive pressure and the vacuum tests often do not produce accurate results.
- A radio frequency identification (RFID) system is used.
- Specially-designed sensors are positioned periodically along the length of the pipe and around its circumference and a reader is used to detect the resonance frequency from the outside.
- This system relies on the measurement of shifts in the resonance frequency of specially-designed sensors. The sea water breach inside the line causes significant variations in the resonance frequency of the system.
Laminating Layers of Hoses to Enhance Physical Properties
It is difficult to satisfy various physical properties such as strength, flexibility, thermal resistance, bending resistance. it is common practice to stack and use rubbers having different properties. non-polar or low-polarity rubber is difficult to adhere to other materials and a different type of rubber.
A laminate containing at least one layer selected from the following layers (1) and (2) and containing at least one layer selected from the following layers (3) and (4)
Layer (1): a layer prepared using an ethylene/a-olefin/non-conjugated polyene copolymer
Layer (2): a layer prepared using an ethylene/carboxylic acid copolymer
Layer (3): a layer prepared using an acrylic rubber
Layer (4): a layer prepared using a halogen-containing polymer
Each year Signicent provides consultancy to hundreds of organizations to help transform their innovations to value.
