A hose’s bend radius determines how long a hose needs to be before it can safely bend while in service. In this video, Flexaust explains what Bend Radius is and how it impacts your hoses.
Understanding bend radius helps ensure a hose will have the necessary strength and functionality for its intended use case. Failing to account for bend radius limits will ultimately cause damage to hoses and shorten their usable service life.
Understanding how to calculate bend radius during hose selection makes it easier to choose an appropriate length of hose. By taking the time to make these calculations upfront, users will ensure optimal functionality and service life from their hoses.
