When trying to determine the optimal Hose there are several parameters that should be considered.  The acronym “STAMPED” represents the key parameters that will help Sentinel choose the best solution for your applications.

Hose Stamped Flyer

One parameter not covered by the “STAMPED” acronym is Hose length.  When measuring Process Hoses it is important to understand what dimensions to take.  The chart below provides tips on measuring various configurations.
