Natural gas is generally not suitable for use with ordinary hydraulic hoses because hydraulic hoses are generally used to transfer liquids (usually liquid fluids), and natural gas is a gas. The characteristics of natural gas make ordinary hydraulic hoses unable to meet their transmission requirements because the gas has high compressibility and low density, which is different from the characteristics of the liquid fluid.


Specially designed natural gas hoses or steel metal hoses are usually used for natural gas transmission.


In natural gas transmission, specialized natural gas hoses, also known as natural gas pipeline hoses, are commonly used. These hoses are designed specifically for natural gas transportation, offering features like high-pressure resistance, corrosion resistance, and durability to ensure the safety and reliability of natural gas transmission.
