Working pressures are in accordance with RMA design safety factors at ambient temperatures (approximately 70°F). Texcel cautions against using a hose outside the stated temperature limits. Even within these limits, coupling type and hose size can negatively impact performance at higher temperatures. For optimum performance and safety, we recommend reducing the maximum working pressure as indicated below:

80° to 150°F – Reduce working pressure by 15%
150° to 225°F – Reduce working pressure by 30%
Over 225°F – Reduce working pressure by 50%
