Abrasive hoses are flexible joints that are used abundantly in fluid movement in heterogeneous joints, non-level surfaces or as vibration absorbers in various industries such as oil, gas, petrochemicals, power plants, cement factories, cube sugar and sugar industries, etc.
These hoses are produced with uncoated or coated stainless steel braid or single-layer stainless steel. hoses without braid are used only for vacuum lines or low pressure applications. Single or multilayer braid hoses are used for hard and variable conditions, these braids are usually made of stainless steel and increase the bellows stiffness. Usually, some of these hoses are produced specifically for variable temperatures and chemical environments with high corrosion rates. The burst pressure of these pipes is usually four times the total pressure, and the test pressure must not be increased to one and a half times the maximum working pressure in order to avoid the risk of deformation and complexity and swirling.
Advantages of flexible metal hoses:
- Corrosion resistance
- High pressure tolerance
- Heat and direct flame resistance
- Resistance to abrasion and penetration
- Connectivity to moving parts of machines
- The vibration and sound absorption of oscillating equipment
