Conventional Style Line Hose is available in orange Type II SALCOR®. SALCOR remains flexible even in cold weather and it is not damaged by ozone or ultraviolet rays. Each line hose has Salisbury’s RIB-GRIP Locking System. The straight or connector end style is available in three sizes: 1” and 1.25” I.D. rated at 17kV, Class 2 and 1.5” I.D. rated at 26.5kV, Class 3.
Straight style SALCOR hose is also available in 2” or 2.5” I.D. rated at Class 3.
Conventional Line Hose Connectors are made from Type II orange SALCOR and can be used on 1”, 1.25”, or 1.5” I.D. conventional line hose. To connect 2” and 2.5” I.D. conventional line hose, use the SU System Connector.
The tightest grip in the industry.
The self-locking lip, Salisbury patented, prevents line hose from coming off the conductor after an installation is complete. Often, as a lineman is working on an installation and making adjustments, the angle of connection shifts, causing line hose and covers to separate. To prevent this, Salisbury developed an ingenious solution for ensuring that any two protective devices would hold together yet still be easy for a lineman to assemble and take apart.
RIB GRIP® construction takes advantage of rubber’s natural tendency to grip and tighten its grip through compression. By creating curving rib configurations slit at a specific angle, two pieces easily slip together but resist coming apart. To quickly disengage the lineman needs only to compress the rubber on either side.
Salisbury Line Hose Selection Chart
The connector, formed at one end, receives and overlaps the end of an adjoining hose for a distance of 6.5” (165mm).
Use the chart below to determine the maximum conductor diameter recommended for use with each size line hose. For ease of installation and to minimize the potential of flashover through the overlapping lips, line hose is always sized larger than the maximum conductor diameter.
Salisbury Line Hose is available in four ASTM D1050 styles, as shown below:
