Metal hose is an important material for modern industry. We can even say, it is necessary for pipelines. It is made from stainless steel. Thus it has excellent temp and corrosion resistance. The work temp range is extremely wide. While it can be -196℃-600℃. Different types of stainless steel make sure the corrosion resistance. Even the mediums are different.
Metal hose generally consists of 3 parts, corrugated hose, metal net cover and joint. However, not all the hoses have such structure. Because in fact, there are many types of such hose. Next let me introduce you 3 types.
Metal conduit generally absorbs SS 304 or SS 301as raw material. While the size can be 3mm to150mm. The main function of such hose is protect the wire and cable. Small size conduit generally serves in precise instrument, sensor and other industrial machines. It has excellent abrasion and corrosion resistance. Besides, it’s flexible with high tensile strength.
Corrugated Metal Hose
It’s has another name which is more simple. That is bellows. It’s the flexible connection in industrial pipe systems. It consists of corrugated hose, metal net cover and connector. The inner tube has spiral or ring skeleton. While the net cover is stainless steel wire or belt braid. The joint can be normal or flange as per the need.
Bellows is the body and it’s flexible. While the net cover is the reinforce. Then the joint is to connect the hose to pipe system.
Plastic coated metal hose
The inner tube is stainless steel or zinc coated hose. While the cover is PVC. Because PVC can provide great resistance to UV and aging. Such hose can work at -40℃-160℃. Besides, it is insulation and water proof. The inner wall is smooth, so that the wire can pass through easily.
