Hoses may seem like straightforward components in your facility. But choose the wrong hose for an application and it will cost you. Tune into this webinar to learn how to treat hoses as critical equipment and handle their selection and installation properly.
If you think all hoses are created equal, think again. In one hour, we’ll discuss how even hoses of similar construction can fail or wear prematurely if they are not selected properly. And even properly selected hoses can fail if installed incorrectly.
This webinar will emphasize the importance of proper hose selection and hose installation while addressing the issues that concern you, whether you’re an engineer or MRO professional working in oil and gas, chemicals, or general industrial. You’ll leave with a new understanding of how and why hose failures are a common source of equipment downtime and safety risks and how to avoid these problems by assessing, selecting and installing hoses best suited to your applications.
