Stainless Steel Flexilbe Hose is used for heat transportation from core hose to jacket or vice versa. Stainless Steel Flexible Metal Hose with large surface results in a higher heat transfer efficiency. This jacketed metallic hoses is suitable for high degree of flexibility, vibration eliminator, resistance to penetration and damage, fire & moisture resistance, economical installation and longer life. It is used for wide range of chemicals, petroleum products, super heated steam, fuel and oil lines, coolant, liquefied gas [cryogenic], vacuum etc.
Stainless Steel Flexilbe Hose can be used with industrial applications where temperature is much higher than industrial standards. Furnished with the fittings attached, hose is good for misaligned connections and anywhere vibration is a concern. Hose ID is ribbed. Can be used outdoors. The hose is composed from an inner hydro formed, corrugated thin-walled tube that is externally braided or unbraided for vacuum service.
The flexible tube can be welded to a variety of fittings and connectors, allowing compatibility with industry interfaces. There are many leading manufacturer of stainless steel metal hose, flexible metallic braided hose connectors, braided hose assembly, composite hose and fluorpolymer hose for use in industrial as well as OEM, semiconductor, oil and gas, vibration absorbers and aerospace applications. Stainless steel wire braid on the hose assembly (SS1) provides the hose with higher internal pressure capability by acting as a restraint against hose elongation and dampens vibration without significant loss of flexibility.
A second layer of braid (SS2) may be used to increase pressure rating provided the test pressure is not exceeded. This can result in permanent corrugation deformation. Stainless Steel Metal hose can be used in many industries such a Pulp & Paper Mills, Chemical Industries, Pharmaceutical, Semiconductor Industries, and Vacuum Applications etc. As the temperature increases, hose working pressure decreases.
After you have determined the proper alloy 'Working press De-rating factor' and match the alloy of the hose and braid with the highest temperature to which they will be exposed (either internally or externally) to obtain the proper de-rating factors. Then multiply the hose's maximum working pressure by the most limiting temperature de-rating factor. Pulsating, surge or shock pressures, like those encountered by quick opening or closing valves, can inflict severe damage on a hose. If your application entails pulsating pressures, the working pressure should be de-rated by . If your application entails shock pressures, de-rate the sated working pressure to 1/6 of its value.
Verify that the minimum bend radius of the hose is less than the bend radius required. Remember that the hose's minimum bend radius will change with pressure. To determine the minimum bend radius for the type of hose you intend to use. Match the line for the hose's I.D. with the pressure requirement of your hose to find the recommended bend radius for our HHF hose.
The material that you choose for the hose and braid must be compatible with the media that will flow through the hose's as well as the environment in which the hose is installed. When determining chemical compatibility, be sure that you know the temperature and concentration of the chemical or chemicals. Although there are many resources to confirm chemical compatibility, two of the industry standards that you may find useful are the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) and the Compass Corrosion Guides.
