INDIANAPOLIS—An updated IP-2 Hose Handbook is available from the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers.
The publication for manufacturers, assemblers and end users was reviewed, updated and approved by member representatives of ARPM's Hose Technical Committee. ARPM said its HTC documents and technical standards are reviewed every five years for revisions and relevance in the marketplace.
"As fluid handling continues to evolve with new technologies, materials, fluids and a focus on safety, the ARPM HTC and its member organizations have jointly updated this industry reference standard for use by manufacturers, asseblers and users," Jeff Epperson, chair of the Hose Technical Committee and also technology manager and chief engineer for Continental ContiTech North America's textile hose business, said in an ARPM release.
The association said representatives from Eaton, Gates, Jason Industrial, Parker Hannifin and ContiTech worked on the handbook updates.
The IP-2 Hose Handbook and more than 100 other technical standards are free for ARPM members or available for purchase by non-members on the ARPM website.
