Inox flexible hoses are thin-walled, cylindrical components with corrugated structure in their surface.
They are leakproof, temperature and corrosion resistant as well as torsionally rigid, nearly maintenance-free, with a high degree of operation safety and a long service life and are used in the following applications :
- for transport of liquids and gases under pressure,
- as vacuum pipe,
- as economic, flexible connection for absorbing movements, heat expansion and/or vibration
- as filling hose
Hose braidings limit the expansion of the hose under internal pressure in axial direction. This increases the resistance to internal pressure of hoses by more than one order of magnitude. In addition, braided corrugated hoses can transmit tractive forces in an axial direction. Hose braidings flexibly suits the movement status of the hose even if a second braid is chosen to increase pressure resistance.
