For your aircraft’s ground support, you need hoses that keep a constant temperature so as not to let equipment get too hot or cold. One reason PCA hoses are perfect for keeping the flight cabin hospitable for highly technical equipment is the state-of-the-art radio frequency welding that goes into their fabrication. RF welding, or dielectric sealing, is the process that keeps these hoses airtight with heat sealed seams. Here are some of the reasons why this manufacturing process is crucial in creating highly reliable PCA hoses.

Increased Strength

Every time radio frequency heat sealing is performed on two pieces of material, the resultant airtight and watertight seal is actually stronger than either of the original pieces. This process also keeps materials nearly as flexible as they were prior to sealing, allowing them to be both strong and easily maneuvered. This strength shows with hoses such as the rigid duct hoses, which are segmented to avoid kinking and tearing. You can trust these hoses to endure a lot of wear as a result.

Perfect Insulation

When insulated PCA hoses use RF welding in their construction, it keeps air in and condensation and other elements out. The material used is carefully sealed to allow for the best temperature control and air flow pressure. There is no better process that can give you better results when pumping generated cooled air into internal aircraft cabins .

Use on Multiple Materials

The versatility of RF welding allows manufacturers to create PCA hoses in varying sizes and shapes, including rigid, expandable and collapsible hoses. When a manufacturer is capable of performing a variety of sealing methods, it creates new options for creating hoses that resist kinking, tearing and leaking.

The reasons for using radio frequency welding far outweigh the ones for going with a different method. If you want top strength, flexibility and long lasting durability for your aircraft’s ground support, you can be certain in knowing that every PCA hose that AmCraft fabricates will give you the performance that you need.
