Due to changes in length when 
hose is pressurized, do not clamp 
at bends so curves absorb changes.

Avoid sharp twist or bend in hose 
by using proper angle adapters.
Adequate hose length is most

Where the radius falls below the 
required minimum, an angle 
adapter should be used as shown 
above to avoid sharp bends in hose.
To avoid twisting in hose lines 
bent in two planes, clamp hose at 
change of plane, as shown.

Obtain direct routing of hose 
through use of 45° and 90° adapters 
and fittings. Improve appearance 
by avoiding excessive hose length.
To prevent twisting and distortion, 
hose should be bent in the same
