4: Sodium bicarbonate used in a cleaning machine causes hoses to wear and is very dangerous

Description

A customer had a cleaning apparatus that uses air to blow sodium bicarbonate to clean metal parts used in rolling stock (train cars). The wear on the PVC hose conveying the sodium bicarbonate was so heavy that the hose would break in less than a month, causing the sodium bicarbonate to leak. Operation would have to be stopped because of the high level of danger this posed.

6: Stiff hoses have to be softened with hot water before use

Description

At a plant where our customer produces precision machinery, they used spring hoses for product assembly and delivery. They fastened a clamp on the barb fitting nipple, but insertion was not easy when mounting the hose. They used hot water to soften it, but that increased time it took to complete the insertion, and they had no hot water when making delivery.
