Popular Uses for Silicone Heater Hoses
Nov. 06, 2021
Silicone hoses can work reliably at temperatures of up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, heat-resistant silicone hoses can withstand even higher temperatures, often up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit! For use in certain situations, custom-made heated hoses can be manufactured for even higher temperatures.
As you might imagine, all of these high temperature hoses are very popular in the many applications where temperatures can soar. Here are ten of the most popular uses for high temperature silicone tubes and hoses.
1. Car engines
Car engines are very powerful and generate a lot of heat! Hoses are used to transport vital fluids to the various components of a vehicle's engine. These fluids can include oil, petrol, coolant, etc. In this compact, hot environment where you can move your vehicle from place to place, whether for daily commuting or off-road, multi-day trips, reliability is important; these hoses need to perform well in extreme heat.
2. Aircraft engines
Just as you will find silicone hoses in vehicles and racing cars, you will often see them in aerospace applications, including aircraft engines that sometimes have to operate at very high operating temperatures. With aircraft engines, there is no room for error, so they need to be designed and manufactured from materials that will hold up well in the rigours of flight. Thankfully, silicone heater hoses meet the stringent requirements of aircraft engines.
3. Industrial production environment
From the manufacture of parts using plastic injection moulding technology to the brewing and bottling of beer in small breweries and large scale breweries, high temperature silicone hoses play an important role. They are used to distribute fluids (and in some cases, gases) to where they are needed, without affecting any part of the manufacturing process.

4. Large trucks
Every day, large trucks transport goods from one area to another. Many fleets make cross-country journeys from coast to coast. These trucks need reliable engines to handle such heavy loads. As with other engines, heat is involved in generating electricity and silicone hoses and tubes can withstand this level of heat.
5. Diesel-powered applications
Many vehicles use turbo-diesel engines (using diesel fuel rather than standard petrol), which often have higher performance and lower emission levels. Although the heat distribution within a diesel engine is different compared to a petrol powered engine, the heat is still present making high temperature silicone hoses ideal for diesel powered vehicle engines and similar applications.
6. HVAC systems
Silicone is a good choice for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and the accompanying ducting requirements. These heater hoses need to withstand temperature fluctuations and operate reliably at high temperatures.
