Hose Stations

Please download this Flow Rate and Steam Consumption Calculator to calculate your hot water flow rate and steam consumption.

You can also look at the Temperature Rise vs Flow Rate Output Chart on page 3. 

The thread size of our temperature gauge is 1/2" NPT.

The GVCP-8 and DURA8-7 are both made of molded PTFE.

Hoses Fittings

SuperKlean has been custom-designing internal hose guards for many years, to extend industrial hose life. (See photo and details on page 24 of the catalog.) Many companies realize the most common place where a hose breaks down is internally, near each end of hose. This occurs at the edge of hose barb that sometimes cuts into the inside of hoses that are pliable and softened by the flow of hot water. SuperKlean LifeSpan hose guards add minimal cost to the hose, but can significantly lengthen the life of a hose by protecting this wear point found in hoses.

The hose guards are made of 304 Stainless Steel.

The gasket is: 0.975" OD x 0.465" ID x 0.120" thickness.

Hose Accessories

Depending on the hose outer diameter size and circumference of the coils, our hose racks can fit up to 100 ft of hose.

The technical drawing for our 12-SS hose rack can be found on our download page and on the product page.

The thread size of our hose rack bolts is M12 - 1.75.

The hose rack mounting holes are approximately 0.55" in diameter.

Maximum hose length is 50' @ 3/4 ID hose.

The technical drawing and dimensions for our industrial hose reels can be found in the hose reel installation manual and on the product page.

Nozzles

The recommended maximum pressure is 150 psi and maximum temperature is 200F.

They are different in material, design, and size. Additional details can be found on our Duraflow Mini and Lite Nozzles product pages.

We do not offer a low flow nozzle. However, low flow can be obtained with the use of a Flow Restrictor Adapter on most SuperKlean nozzles.

Our nozzles are for water use only.

The size is 18 x 2, where 18mm is the ID of the ring, and 2mm is the diameter of the rubber.

Yes, our aluminum nozzle has small traces of lead. For lead free nozzles, you can purchase our stainless steel nozzles.

The tip gasket and O-ring on the cartridge are both made of nitrile.

The trigger on the DH150S is slightly harder to squeeze because of its more compact design (a shorter lever) and to ensure the reliability of the automatic shut-off feature of the nozzle. This design also allows single handed operation of the locking mechanism vs some competitors’ nozzles, which may require both hands to lock the nozzle spray pattern.

The D-Wand tip is attached to the connector using a M15 x 1.5 thread. The connector is attached to the barrel by a M12 x 1 thread.
