LP Gas Hose - CSA, UL569

Series 7170 is a flexible, lightweight hose connector for transfer of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)/propane in barbecue grills, portable heaters, weed burning apparatus and similar appliances. The hose meets all Underwriters Laboratories (UL569) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) requirements. The construction incorporates multiple textile plies of reinforcement for flexibility and kink resistance. The perforated cover is resistant to mild chemicals, oil and ozone.

Refer to Technical Resources>Critical Applications for safety, handling and use information.

Series 7170 and Natural Gas: The molecules of natural gas are small, enhancing their ability to permeate through standard rubber hose constructions. The permeation process is more rapid as the working pressure increases, and natural gas accumulates with potentially dangerous consequences. Series 7170 may be used for natural gas service, but ONLY under ALL of the following conditions:
• The application must be in a well-ventilated environment: Outdoors, or indoors with significant continuous air movement.
• Series 7170 is not to replace fixed/rigid pipe where that material is more appropriate due to reduced permeation and overall strength and durability. Use rigid pipe, non-permeable tubing or hose with barrier constructions to convey natural gas whenever possible.

Series 7170 and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG): Do not use Series 7170 for CNG engine applications in on-road vehicles, or for high pressure CNG dispenser/transfer applications (typically 2900 psi or greater). In other applications—where CNG is regulated to pressures within the rating of Series 7170—apply the guidelines for natural gas applications stated above. Always review and adhere to all applicable government and industry regulations and standards prior to installing this hose in a CNG or natural gas application.

Series 7170 and Anhydrous Ammonia (NH3):
Do not use Series 7170 with anhydrous ammonia.
