Apply a second coat of rubber cement to cut (exposed) edge of hose.
Repeat steps (f) through (j) on remaining hose end.
Lay line must run straight the entire length of each 500-foot hose section.
If damaged area in (c) was small, couple adapter together using either a pipe coupling
clamp (paragraph 2-6, step c) or a coupling ring (paragraph 2-13). Use lay line to align
hose before securing coupling.
(m) If the damage area removed is large, insert a new section of hose into hoseline.
(n) Check hose for leaks.
If check indicates that there are no leaks present, return hose for service, if hose
continues to leak during check, replace hose.
(2.1) Major breaks and ruptures (Model FIHK-100) (figure 3-8.1)
Install hose clamps (1 and 2) about 3-feet upline and downline from damaged section of
hose (3). Tighten hose clamps until hose is pinched closed.
To ensure hose does not leak after repair, mark and cut hose squarely.
Do not leave ragged or uneven edges.
Cut out damaged section of hose (3) with knife. If leak is caused by a small puncture, cut
hose at puncture.
Drain hose ends into suitable container and wipe ends dry.
Inspect inside of hose ends (4 and 6) for damage. Cut hose ends back again, as required,
to ensure all damaged hose material is removed.
Potential health hazards result from inhalation of petroleum solvent
vapors and contact of solvent with skin. Use rubber gloves and hand
cream for protection, and work in well ventilated area.
Dry cleaning solvent used to clean parts is potentially dangerous
to personnel and property. Avoid repeated and prolonged contact.
Do not use near open flame or excessive heat. Flash point of
solvent is 100º F-138º F (38ºC--60ºC).
Using wiping rag and dry cleaning solvent, wipe inside of both hose ends (3 and 4). Reach
back at least 6-inches inside hose ends. Dry hose ends thoroughly with dry wiping rag.
Remove two clamp sections (7) from adapter (5).
Apply rubber cement to cut (raw) area of hose end (4).
