Our metal hose can be used for both fluids & gases and can withstand heat and corrosion.
Annular Corrugated Metal Hose
Corrugated metal hose is manufactured from relatively thin wall butt welded tube into which rounded corrugations are formed. The hose flexes through the movement of metal corrugations.
Corrugated metal hoses are suitable for a wide range of applications in the steelmaking, chem ical smelting,petrochemical, automotive, materials handling and power generation industries, and many other fields. The hose can be used for the conveyance of fluids and gases, the correction of misalignments and the absorption of movements and vibrations.
The advantage of metal hose over other materials is its capability to withstand high temperatures, impacts and corrosive substances and atmospheres.
PTFE Convoluted Multi-purpose hose, used for a wide variety of applications.
This is a convoluted PTFE lined hose, with excellent flexibility in bore sizes from3/8”, to 4”. It is designed for use in a wide variety of general purpose applications such as automotive, steam transfer, refrigeration and other applications where the temperature resistance, chemical resistance and ease of cleaning of the PTFE liner are necessary requirements.
Stainless Steel braid has a liner tube made from convoluted, extra flexible grade PTFE, with an outer stainless steel wire braid reinforcement. Polymer Braid has a braid made from orange polypropylene monofilaments. This provides a lightweight braid with excellent chemical resistance, but is not usable at temperatures above 100°C (internal). Maximum working pressures must be reduced to 50% of the pressures listed for assemblies with stainless over braid. Tube Only has no braid. It is very lightweight, and the tube is semi-transparent. It is only usable at low pressures (less than 2 Bar).
A customisable system which gives a choice of properties for your product.
Design - Hose Liner: Seamless extruded PTFE tube, made exclusively from PTFE polymer. The choice of these grades, together with the extrusion, heat treatment and quality control programmes are designed to produce the best quality PTFE tube possible, ensuring minimum porosity and maximum flexibility.
Hose Braid: Braided from AISI grade 304 stainless steel wire, bright hard drawn to a minimum 1700 N/mm2 tensile strength. The braiding process is closely controlled to ensure even tensions and the correct braid angle, to giveminimum expansion/contraction under pressure.
For the transfer of Fluids i.e. Fuels, Oils and Chemicals. Composite Hoses are manufactured on the mandrel wrapped principle. The hose consists of an inner wire spiral upon which layers of fabric and film are wrapped, and bound with an external wire spiral. The tension between each other of the wire spirals gives the hose its pressure capability.
The heart of a composite hose is in the materials selection. Fabric and film materials used include Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyamide. The wire helixes can be of galvanised steel, aluminium, stainless steel or polypropylene coated steel.
