Hi, I'm a mechanical engineering major working on my Senior Design project. I won the luck of the draw an got assigned developing an thermal insulating sleeve for a hydraulic hose. What I really need help with is feedback from anyone who actually uses protection sleeves or wraps or even tapes , what things they like and don't like about them as well as what would be changes they would like to see. It can be any kind of protection device for thermal, abrasion, spark or even sound muffling protection , I'm more interested in feedback on your thoughts on applying and maintaining a device like that. An example would be like" The sleeves we use are rather bulky and don't give a great fit, I wish we had something lighter and more flexible. " In the end when I do(if ) our presentation we'll be able to present how people who actually use them feel about products on the market. So please help me out, your is greatly appreciated.
