PEAR hose assemblies start with ContiTech Aeropal hose created exclusively for aircraft refueling. We offer API hose from 3/4 inch to 4 inches in diameter. All hoses meet API 1529/2005, 6th edition, Grade 2, type C and E.
- Type C is nonelectrically bonded hose incorporating a semiconductive cover compound having an electrical resistance between 103 and 106 ohms/meter.
- Type E is electrically conducting hose incorporating one metallic conducting helical support bonded to the couplings and a conductive cover. The electrical resistance is less than 100 ohms/meter. This type of hose may be used as a riser hose in a hydrant servicer or in refuelers to supply fuel to an elevating platform.
Fittings and couplings are available in male and female NPT for Cam & Groove (mil spec available), TTMA flange and 150 lbs. flange in aluminum, brass or stainless per customer request/specification.
All aviation hose assemblies are custom made in our Darby, Montana, facility with the coupling/fitting and length specified by the customer. Hose and couplings/fittings are clearly marked in accordance with API 1529. Hose assemblies are 100 percent hydrostatic tested to 600 psi and checked for electrical continuity. Each hose receives a unique serial number for tracking and a test certificate.
