UL 330 Curb Pump Hose Assemblies


IRPCO adheres to the strict protocol outlined in the UL 330 mandate for consumer dispensing hose assemblies. Effective Jan. 1, 2013, all curb pump hose assemblies must be tested and inspected to this standard. In addition, UL inspectors frequent our facility to insure all production and testing measures are in place.



LP (propane) hose assemblies and aircraft hose assemblies are produced in our large diameter hose cell (LDHC). Both of these hoses require strict adherence to stringent coupling, testing, and recordkeeping procedures.
  1. The hoses are cut to the length required and coupled to manufacturers specification.
  2. After the coupling procedure the hose are pressure tested to the specification required by the regulatory body responsible (UL, DOT, or API).
  3. After a successful test the coupling is engraved with a serial number. This number is kept on file at IRPCO along with the customer identification and date information.
  4. All of this information is transferred to the certification document which is packaged with the hose itself. A copy of the certification document is also sent with the invoice and another copy is retained in the IRPCO files. This information is also stored electronically in the IRPCO system. Redundancy here insures that the certification information is available if needed.



To provide the highest value for our customers, the safest workplace for our associates and the strongest leadership in our industry by continually striving to improve our services, products and processes.
