Stainless steel annular corrugated metallic flexible hoses are manufactured in austenitic steel ANSI 321, 316, 316L & 304 grades conforming to BS 6501, Part-1. The annular corrugated metallic hose body provided the flexibility and pressure tight core of the assembly. Highly flexible close –pitch hoses are manufactured for special applications
When pressure is applied, unbraided hose tends to elongate axially; to restrain this, an external layer of SS wire braid is provided. The braid also makes the assembly pressure compatible.
Sometimes two or even three layers of braiding are provided for high pressure applications. The braiding is highly flexible and follows the movement of the hose. The braid is normally manufactured in SS 304 wire. However SS 316 and 321 braids can also be manufactured. We also supply wire braid in different configurations as per customer specifications.
Advantages of Stainless Corrugated bellow hoses :
High physical strength combined with light weight
Suitable for wide temperature range (-270° C to + 700°C)
Good corrosion resistance. Resistance to fire, moisture, abrasion and penetration.
Absorbs vibration and noise from pumps, compressors, engines etc.
Compensates for intermittent or constant movement.
Compensates for thermal expansion of contraction of piping.
Corrects problems of misalignment.
A flexible and quick alternative for rigid piping in difficult locations.

In order to get satisfactory service and longer life from stainless steel flexible hose, the hoses assembly should be installed in the right manner. The sharp bending a hose assembly, particularly at the welded ends, stressed and twisted mounting and excessive fatigue are main causes of premature failure. See installation chart for correct and incorrect modes.
|Dimension the hose adequately||Take care that the flexible length is not too short|
|Avoid excessive bending of the hose||Use pipe bends|
|Do not allow the hose to sag||Use a support|
|Do not move the hose obliquely to the installation plane||Movement should be along|
|Avoid torsional twist when fittings are not in line||Install in one plane only|
|Avoid torsion due to Angular movements||All movements should be only along the axis of the hose|
