Continental is adding to its line of thermoplastic and rubber hoses with the Velocity petroleum drop hose, which is capable of handling biofuel and more.
The hose can be used with gasoline, gasoline with 10% ethanol, E85, 100% ethanol, diesel, B20 and B100 biodiesel, and kerosene, and is fully compatible with fuels that meet ASTM D5798, D4806 and D6751.
It’s designed to be paired with the Spiraflex vapor recovery hose.
The rigid PVC helix and polyester braiding along the corrugated exterior makes the hose easy to handle, especially across rough surfaces, the company says. Its static dissipating wire also keeps the hose grounded and eliminates the danger of static discharge while unloading.
The hose and its tube-to-cover adhesion offers the same durability as rubber hoses, Continental adds.
