Parker's Series 7263C Steam-Lance Compact Steam Hose provides excellent service across a wide variety of steam applications. The hose incorporates a slim profile for easy handling and installation, and is durable, crush resistant and kink resistant for a long service life. The rugged cover also resists abrasion, heat/cold temperature fluctuations and weathering to provide superior performance. Series 7263C is qualified with economical non-skive permanent crimp couplings for a quick, streamlined, safe and secure connection.
• General Industrial
• Oil & Gas
• Tube: Black EPDM for heat resistance and long service life to 406°F /450°F.
• Reinforcement: Multiple wire braids for extreme strength and durability.
• Cover: Black EPDM for abrasion and weathering resistance; perforated for steam service.
• Couplings: Qualified with steel crimp couplings for a durable, safe and secure connection.
• Hot water

• Design Factor: 20:1
• Failure to properly inspect, maintain, test and use steam hose assemblies may result in property damage, personal injury or death. Refer to ARPM publication IP-11-1, "Guide for Use, Testing and Inspection of Steam Hose."
• Water changes to hot water and phases of steam when subjected to heat and pressure. The greater the pressure, the higher the temperature required to achieve and maintain a steam phase. If steam escapes, dangerous quantities of heat may be released very suddenly. Exposure to hot water, low pressure steam and high pressure steam may cause severe scalding or fatal burns.
• Use only hoses designated for steam service for steam applications.
• Prior to use with detergents or rust inhibitors, refer to the chemical guide link in the Support Tab, or contact Parker.
• Drain steam hose after each use to reduce the possibility of hose popcorning while in service.
• Couplings attached with bands or clamps may reduce the working pressure of the hose assembly to less than the maximum rated working pressure of the hose. Refer to NAHAD Industrial Hose Assembly Guidelines.
