S.T.A.M.P.E.D. is a helpful acronym used to help determine the product you need by specifying certain parameters. There are seven major information areas required to provide a quality hose assembly:

Size: I.D., O.D. and length

Temperature: of the material conveyed and environmental

Application: the conditions of use

Material: being conveyed, type and concentration

Pressure: to which the assembly will be exposed

E
nds: style, type, orientation, attachment methods, etc.

Delivery: testing, quality, packaging, and delivery requirements

Special considerations below may help to clarify application parameters:

AbrasionFluid VelocitySalt Water
Electrical ConductivityMovement (type, distance, frequency)Static Electricity
EnvironmentOzoneUltraviolet Light
FlammabilityPermeation (vapor conveying hose)Vibration (frequency rate- Hz amplitude “G” load)
