Silicone hoses for wind turbines

Wind powered Machinery or Wind Powered Electrical Generators often use hoses. Silicone Rubber is a perfect material offering a good quality with no cracking, fading or splitting and so offering a long service life. 

Larger turbines can be used for making small contributions to a domestic power supply while selling unused power back to the utility supplier via the electrical grid. Arrays of large turbines, known as “wind farms”, are becoming an increasingly important source of renewable energy; and are used by many countries as part of a strategy to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels.

At Viper Performance we produce high quality performance silicone hoses to your design and specification for use in wind turbines where conditions can be more demanding and where traditional hoses will not work.

Our high silicone combined with high quality reinforcement fabrics, assures the optimum hose performance, offering reliability and long life at high temperature and pressures.

Our specialist silicone hoses can be manufactured to your specification.

We can produce a flexible or more rigid, offering diameters from 6mm to 102mm with customised lengths possible up to 8 metres long.

Silicone Hoses

Silicone hoses have the capabilities of carrying fluids at much higher temperatures in comparison to rubber. The idea of a silicone hose is that you can replace the standard hose so that it doesn’t expand and get hot under pressure.

Silicone hoses are made from a very stable material that acts almost like new, even when it’s not. While rubber hoses are prone to cracking, getting stiff, or becoming dry and rotted over time, the resilience of silicone means that this is less likely to occur. Anyone who has experienced a hose leak will understand the challenge of diagnosing and correcting an issue therefore, upgrading to silicone will have a definite impact on your performance for the better.

We have over 40,000 Silicone Hoses in stock for immediate dispatch.
