BLUE THUNDER® UHMWPE Chemical Hose
- FDA Compliant

Series 7373T is a high pressure, high temperature suction and discharge hose designed to handle approximately 98% of commonly used acids, chemicals and solvents. The ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) tube will not leach into and contaminate the product being conveyed. The corrugated hose construction incorporates a dual wire helix that provides full suction capability, kink resistance, flexibility for ease of handling, and a path to conduct a static electrical charge to ground. The cover is resistant to abrasion, mild chemicals and ozone.

NOTES:
• Refer to Technical Resources>Critical Applications/Usage for safety, handling and use information.
• Refer to Technical Resources>Guides & Tables to determine compatibility with specific chemicals. Contact Parker for additional chemical compatibility information.

Tube: Translucent ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE)
Reinforcement: Multiple textile plies with dual wire helix
Cover: Blue EPDM; corrugated wrapped finish

-40°F to +180°F (-40°C to +82°C)

WARNING
Chemicals may become increasingly aggressive as their temperatures progress above 70°F (21°C). Chemicals at elevated temperatures typically exceed the performance capability of a hose with a general rating that exceeds 70°F (21°C).). Refer to the WARNING section below for more information.

WARNINGS!
• The data tables published in the Chemical Guides section of Parker Catalog 4800 are based on tests and believed to be reliable, but the data should be used ONLY as a guide. The compatibility ratings for rubber/non-PVC materials apply to media at 70°F (21°C). However, chemicals may become increasingly aggressive as their temperatures progress above that level, and typically exceed the performance capability of a hose whose general rating exceeds 70°F (21°C). Contact Parker for chemical compatibility data at elevated temperatures. If no data exists, it is the user's responsibility to determine hose/chemical/temperature compatibility. All critical applications should be tested.
• At operating temperatures of 125°F and above, only permanently attached couplings should be installed. At any operating temperature, couplings attached with bands or clamps may reduce the working pressure of the hose assembly to less than the maximum rated working pressure of the hose. Refer to the NAHAD Industrial Hose Assembly Guidelines.
• Do not use with internally expanded couplings. Refer to chemical hoses that incorporate a MXLPE tube.
