VersaFlow Hose Assemblies — Common Features
Fire Retardenat Stainless Steel — Good insurance for the specifier, installer, and owner
Regardless of balancing method selected, all kits have valuable common features on which most designers and owners can agree.
100% Leak Tested
Each assembled hose is individually tested hydro-statically for leak and mechanical integrity.
400 WPSI Rated For All Sizes
The entire F.D.I. line of hose products (1/2" thru 2") is rated 400 WPSI. Thesehigh strength products no longer make the hose the weak link in a piping system.
EPDM was chosen as the core for the F.D.I. hose products because of it's superior qualities of strength, high temperature limitations, flexibility,memory and resistivity to chemical additives found in HVAC systems.
Swivel Union Ends
Swivel ends minimize installation time and allow "looping" for initial flushing and draining of piping systems.
Stainlesss Steel Braid
Stainless steel braid offers excellent tensile strength, resistance to corrosion, consistent strand diameter and braidability. The proper pick and braid angle of stainless steel strand yields the highest strength, flexibility and percent of core coverage.
Brass End Fittings
All fittings are manufactured from 360 brass, maintaining excellent machinability and close tolerances. Consistency in threads (NPTF) and repeatability of fitting barb dimensions (<0.002") assure uniformity throughout the product line. 360 brass also minimizes the possibility of electrolytic action.
Proof Pressure Tested
Each assembly is proof pressure tested to 600 PSI in accordance with the Rubber Manufacturers Association which precludes faulty products from being installed.
