S.S FLEXIBLE CORRUGATED METALLIC HOSES & ASSEMBLIES
SPECIFICATION: BS: 6501
     
Size : 6mm (1/4") to 200mm (8") I.D
     
Hose Material : S.S. 304, 304L, 316, 316L, 321
     
Braiding Material : S.S.304
     
Temperature Range : From Cryogenic -200°C to Hi-Temp +800°C
     
Construction : By forming and butt-welding metal strip into thin-walled rigid tubing and impressing into this tubing a corrugated profile. Thickness of the metal strip, height of the corrugations and the number of corrugation per foot of hose all affect the performance characteristics of the hose. Annular corrugated close pitch hose is for high degree of flexibility and working pressure.

 

   
Application : Suitable for wide range of chemicals, petroleum products, super heated steam, fuel and oil lines, coolant, liquefied gas (cryogenic), vacuum etc.
     
Advantage : Suitable for high degree of flexibility, vibration eliminator, resistance to penetration and damage, fire & moisture resistance, economical installation and longer life
     
Consumers: : Nuclear Power Corporation, O.N.G.C, paper plants, chemical and fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, refineries, steel industries, aerospace, shipping and textiles
