Corrugated Metal Hose is generally used for flexing and vibration, while conveying liquids and gases. The metal wire braid provides the assembly with a higher pressure capability by acting as a restraint against hose elongation and acts to dampen vibration. The annular hose is formed from tubing into individual parallel corrugations and the braid is manufactured by grouping single wires and then braiding them into an intricate pattern that tightens when the braid is stretched. Alloys include bronze, steel, stainless steel, and Monel. Working pressures range from full vacuum through 12,000 psi. Temperatures up to 1500°F. Standard sizes range from 1/4" through 18" I.D. A variety of size, length and end fitting configurations are available.
