A hose is generally made up of three components:

1. Tube: The tube’s function is to contain the material conveyed. To investigate chemical compatibility, please refer to the chemical resistance charts and characteristics of hose stock types in Gates hydraulic catalog to identify material for a specific fluid.

2. Reinforcement: The reinforcement of a hose is the hose’s muscle. The hoses reinforcement will provide the necessary strength to resist internal pressure (suction/vacuum) or external pressure.

3. Cover: The cover protects the reinforcement and tube from environmental conditions
