HOSE TESTING

EPDM HOSE

a. Organoleptic and physical test
b. Toxic metals test
c. Cytotoxicity test
d. Microbiological growth test

Conclusion:
All control samples gave satisfactory and valid results. The samples of this material have been found to comply with the requirements of AS/NZS 4020 Testing of products for use in contact with drinking water.

SOLAR INSTALLATIONS

Tests were carried out to evaluate Plumb-Ezy Flexibles fitted to solar installations. The fluid being used is glycol-ethylene, which may reach a temperature of 100° Celsius, with peaks of up to 140° Celsius. Aging tests were carried out also in comparison with hot water at 100° Celsius.

Conclusion:
Aquaknect Flexibles are perfectly suitable for use under these very stringent conditions of operation.

ACOUSTICAL MEASUREMENTS

Noise reduction using flexibles.
1. Testing of a tap in a rigid circuit resulted in a reading of 57dB.
2. Testing of the same tap fitted with a flexible resulted in reading of 43dB.

Conclusion:
Flexible hoses reduce water noise by approximately 14dB. Other tests carried out on larger diameter flexible hoses showed that the longer the flex the larger the noise reduction achieved. Water Hammer – Aquaknect stainless steel braided flexible connectors reduce water hammer or at the very least (dependent on the application) reduce the noise created by water hammer.
