Corrugated Metal Hose Assemblies

Flexible Stainless Steel Braided Hose

Corrugated metal hose, often referred to as stainless steel braided hose, is excellent for gas and liquid transfers as it can handle extreme temperatures, high pressures and is gas tight. It also offers the most flexibility in fitting configurations as virtually any type of fitting can be welded/attached to metal hose. Applications for corrugated metal hose generally include applications requiring corrosion resistance, extreme high & low temperature capabilities, or high durability.

Although many metal hoses look the same, there are many critical questions to ask and factors/characteristics to consider in order to design the best custom hose solution for your specific application. To properly design a metal hose assembly for a particular application, the following factors should be considered:  
  • Size – I.D. O.D. and length
  • Temperature – Internal and external temperatures to the assembly is exposed to.
  • Application – Current hose used or discuss equipment and applications hose is intended for.
  • Material – Identify all materials/chemicals to which each component of the assembly will be exposed to, both internally and externally. Pressure – Identify the working and vacuum pressure.
  • End Fittings – Identify the necessary fittings and custom ends.
  • Delivery – Lead Time, Quantity, Special Marking or Packaging Requirements.
