Tubing & Hose Buying Tips
#18: Know Your Packaging Requirements

It can be challenging to make sure you’ve covered all the bases during the tubing and hose selection process. Have you considered all the elements involved with the application? Temperatures, chemicals, pressures, flexibility needs? In Tubing & Hose Buying Tips we’ll address common selection factors, one at a time, in each issue of extrusions.

packagingAre 100-foot coils of tubing or hose acceptable? Do you need 10,000 straight pieces, each five feet long? Must they be bagged, double bagged for extra cleanliness, boxed, or are stacked coils on a wooden pallet okay? Can lengths of rigid products be cut and boxed to meet requirements for shipping by UPS or a similar carrier, instead of forcing a truck shipment?

Knowing how the tubing or reinforced hose will be used can help determine your packaging needs. If it's going to be inventoried, you may want some sort of protective covering like a bag or box. If the tubing will be used immediately, that may not be needed. Ask about bulk packaging (multiple coils or lengths in one box), and see if it will save you money.

Perhaps the tubing is part of a kit that you assemble. You'd like six-foot lengths of 1/8" I.D. clear, unreinforced PVC coiled into 4" diameter circles, and then placed in individual bags and sealed. Order it that way, so you don't need to do anything with it other than place each bag with your kit. You'll save time and labor.

packagingDo you want the tubing bagged and labeled with your part number, your customer's, or other useful information such as temperature limitations? Will the tubing be used in a medical, pharmaceutical, or other clean application? Check into having it gamma irradiated before it ships to you, so it's ready for use upon delivery.

Consider the tubing's application and how the proper packaging can assist the end user. Keep in mind that special packaging is a custom process that will likely involve minimum order quantities, additional lead time, and added costs.
