Convoluted stainless steel hose assemblies offer a cost effective and reliable solution to absorb the effects of vibration and misalignment of pipework and machinery, especially where pressures are involved. A good physical strength enables high operating temperatures and pressures. Each hose is fire resistant and consists of a convoluted stainless steel inner liner formed from thin-wall tube. Pressure containment is ensured by up to three plies stainless steel interwoven wire overbraid, which covers the full hose length. This overbraid also acts as a resistance to elongation under pressure in addition to some mechanical protection. Other options offered include outer wire Spring Guard, internal stainless steel Interlock Hose Liner and Jacketed Hoses.
PTFE hoses are widely used throughout the Pharmaceutical, Dairy and Food Industries and can offer working conditions up to 2000 PSI and 260 degrees centigrade (although not together). Each Hose can be produced with either a smooth or convoluted inner bore. As with stainless steel convoluted hoses, a stainless steel outer braid is standard to increase the pressure rating. Wire helix can also be incorporated into the design for use on vacuum systems.
Virtually any fitting can be applied to each hose assembly. Standard end connections from stock comprise of the following :-
Alternatively, customers may supply free-issue fittings
Steel grades for fittings mainly consist of Mild Steel or 303 and 316 Stainless Steels. Each hose is available with either 321 or 316 Stainless Steel convolute with a 304 Stainless Steel overbraid. Additional alloys are obtainable. If other specifications are required, please advise.
