Stainless Steel Hose

The Proflex metal hose can be used for both fluids and gases and can withstand heat and corrosion, as it is a stainless steel conduit. Stainless steel is resistant to corrosion and heat damage, and is a tough, resilient material that is perfect for use in flexible stainless steel conduits.

Annular Corrugated Metal Hose

Corrugated metal hose is manufactured from relatively thin wall butt welded tube into which rounded corrugations are formed. The hose flexes through the movement of metal corrugations.

Corrugated metal hoses, especially flexible stainless steel conduits, are suitable for a wide range of applications in the steel-making, chemical smelting, petrochemical, automotive, materials handling and power generation industries, and many other fields. The hose can be used for the conveyance of fluids and gases, the correction of misalignments and the absorption of movements and vibrations.

The advantage of metal hose over other materials is its capability to withstand high temperatures, impacts and corrosive substances and atmospheres.

Corrugated hose is seamless, making it ideal for the conveyance of liquids and gases under pressure. Corrugated hoses can be used either unreinforced (or unbraided), or with wire braid reinforcement depending upon the pressure rating and application.

External wire braiding fitted to the hose and secured at each end during the end connection process will significantly increase the pressure capability of the hose. More than one layer of the braid may be fitted as necessary.
The operating temperature of the application will have a direct relationship on the lowering of the pressure capability of the hose as illustrated in the temperature correction table on the back of our data sheet.

All stainless steel conduit assemblies are tested prior to dispatch by pneumatic test; in this test, the hose is filled with compressed air and submerged in water, a leak being detected by air bubbles. Hydrostatic tests are also available – this is where the hose assembly is filled with water and internal pressure is applied, a leak being detected by water dripping from any part of the assembly.

PTFE Convoluted

This hose is multi-purpose and can be used for a wide variety of applications.

This is a convoluted PTFE lined hose, with excellent flexibility in bore sizes from 3/8″, to 4″. It is designed for use in a wide variety of general purpose applications such as automotive, steam transfer, refrigeration and other applications where the temperature resistance, chemical resistance and ease of cleaning of the PTFE liner are necessary requirements.

Construction

Stainless Steel braid has a liner tube made from convoluted, extra flexible grade PTFE, with an outer stainless steel wire braid reinforcement. Polymer Braid has a braid made from orange polypropylene monofilaments. This provides a lightweight braid with excellent chemical resistance, but is not usable at temperatures above 100°C (internal).
Maximum working pressures must be reduced to 50% of the pressures listed for assemblies with stainless over braid. Tube Only has no braid. It is very lightweight, and the tube is semi-transparent. It is only usable at low pressures (less than 2 Bar).

The three grades specified above are available with an anti-static (black) PTFE liner tube instead of the natural 3, (translucent) PTFE liner tube. The anti-static hose grade is required when fluids with a high electrical resistance, such as solvents or fuels, are passed through the hose. The electrical resistance between the inner surface of the hose liner and the end fittings is less than 107 ohms, permitting dissipation of any static charge, in accordance with BS2050:1978. If in doubt, contact Proflex Hose to decide which fluids or gases require the anti-static grade.

Hose Assemblies

Hose can be supplied without end fittings attached’ for distributors to assemble themselves using either conventional hydraulic fittings or short tail (PTFE) fittings and the design of pallet swage ferrule.
The convolutions are easily opened out to the spigot tail diameter by screwing in a (supplied) special tool (without the application of heat) after which the spigot can be inserted. Alternatively complete hose assemblies can be supplied. All conventional types of hose end fittings can be fitted to Visiflon hose assemblies. Hoses can also be supplied with ends “Cuffed” for customers to fit themselves.

Certification

Hose and hose assemblies can be supplied with full certificates of conformity, together with test and materials certificates. If these are required, it should be stated on the enquiry and order.

Composite Hose

No tags exist for this product.

For the transfer of Fluids i.e. Fuels, Oils and Chemicals Composite hoses are manufactured on the mandrel wrapped principle. The hose consists of an inner wire spiral upon which layers of fabric and film are wrapped, and bound with an external wire spiral. The tension between each other of the wire spirals gives the hose its pressure capability.

The heart of a composite hose is in the materials selection. Fabric and film materials used include Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyamide. The wire helixes can be of galvanised steel, aluminium, stainless steel or polypropylene coated steel.

PTFE Smoothbore

No tags exist for this product.

A customisable system which gives a choice of properties for your product.

 

Design

Hose Liner: Seamless extruded PTFE tube, made exclusively from PTFE polymer. The choice of these grades, together with the extrusion, heat treatment and quality control programmes are designed to produce the best quality PTFE tube possible, ensuring minimum porosity and maximum flexibility.

Hose Braid: Braided from AISI grade 304 stainless steel wire, bright hard drawn to a minimum 1700 N/mm2 tensile strength. The braiding process is closely controlled to ensure even tensions and the correct braid angle, to give minimum expansion/contraction under pressure.

Size Ranges

Standard Wall: For general purpose use, including high and low pressure steam, chemicals, paints, inks, adhesives, fuels, oils, detergents, refrigerants and foodstuffs.

Heavy Wall: For heavy duty use, also for use with gases up to 150 Bar pressure, and for hot/cold cycling applications.
‘Dash’: For general purpose use, and to match the popular American ‘dash’ sizes, often used with ‘reusable’type end fittings.

A special size range is also available for use with hydraulic end fittings which require a slightly larger hose bore than the standard sizes above, to permit the insertion of the end fittings into the hose bore.

Hose Properties

Temperature Resistance: PTFE hose is usable from – 70°C up to +230°C, dependent upon the braid and the working pressure (see Specifications).

Chemical Resistance: PTFE is the most chemically resistant material known, and is only affected by a small number of very uncommon chemicals; Fluorine Gas, boiling Alkali Metals, Chlorine Trifluoride and Oxygen Difluoride.

Flexibility with Strength: Smoothbore PTFE hose has excellent dynamic flex life, and performs well at high pressures in flexing or vibrating applications.

Self-Cleaning: The famous non-stick nature of PTFE ensures that material passing through does not become ‘hung up’ inside the hose, creating the risk of bacterial growth, or contamination. The hose, therefore, is effectively self-cleaning.

We have two types of bellows to assist in the smooth control of your system:

Exhaust Bellows

Exhaust Bellows are hose bellows designed to absorb vibration, noise & exhaust gasses together with small amounts of axial, lateral & angular movements in high temperature, low pressure applications.
Supplied as standard with c/stl or s/stl flanges or they can be custom made from different materials and to specific dimensions especially to suit each application, be it replacement of existing expansion joints or brand new systems. This type of hose bellows is particularly effective as a vibration absorber.

Moulded Rubber Bellows Hose

Moulded Rubber Bellows hose is a type of hose bellows designed to compensate for misalignment, neutralise movement and reduce noise and vibration in pipelines. They effectively dampen the transmission of sound and vibration from plant items in building service installations, and can be used for many applications including water, oils, chemicals, gases and in the food industry depending upon the grade of the rubber used in the rubber bellows hose.
