Hoses have a massive part to play in industry, and hose failure, even if the pressure inside is relatively low, can have serious consequences to equipment, personnel and the environment. If the pressure is high, the consequences could be catastrophic. We begin by looking at what a hose is, and the make-up of different types of hoses to suit a huge variety of uses.
