Metallic Hose

Arco Hose offer a wide range of metallic hose options to suit ever demanding applications. These hoses are specified due to their increased performance characteristics:

  • Temperature range of -200ºC to +600ºC
  • Increased physical strength
  • Resistance to corrosion
  • Longer service life
  • Resistance to penetration and damage

They are used in a wide variety of applications, whether conveying liquids or gases, in particular for gas supply, transfer of steam, food stuffs, chemicals and hot liquids. We manufacture using a variety of materials based on your exact needs, for both hose and end fittings.

For aggressive chemical applications, we can offer PTFE hoses which are real problem solvers for a wide variety of aggressive liquids, whilst performing in extreme pressures and temperatures. PTFE is also non-toxic and suitable for food, drink and pharmaceutical applications.

Arco Hose has a range of stainless steel flexible corrugated metallic hoses available, which are manufactured to BS6501 Part 1 1991 Type B, quality assured standards. The size range is 6mm to 250mm nominal bore.

Stainless steel wire braiding is applied externally in single or double layers depending on the hose application, working pressure and operating conditions. Braiding corrugated hose increases its ability to withstand pressure, has increased hoop strength and abrasion resistance.

Corrugated stainless steel hose is capable of operating in a temperature range of -200ºC to +600ºC, and is ideal for many industrial applications, whether conveying liquids or gases.

There are a number of advantages to installing flexible metal hoses, which are:

  • High physical strength
  • Resistance to penetration and damage
  • Good resistance to corrosion
  • Suitable for high temperatures up to +600ºC
  • Suitable for low temperatures down to -200ºC
  • Fire resistant
  • Greater flexibility
  • Long life when correctly installed

Convoluted PTFE S&D Hoses 3 Polymer Overbraid

Polypropylene braid is used in place of stainless steel, in applications where there is frequent handling of the hose by operators. The polymer braid option offers two main benefits:
• The assembly is lighter in weight for easier manual handling (approx 15% reduction)
• The risk of the operator being ‘stabbed’ by broken stainless steel strands is eliminated.

Pressure and vacuum ratings are the same as with stainless steel overbraid, but please note the following; TEMPERATURE RANGE IS REDUCED TO -30ºC to +100ºC.

Convoluted PTFE S&D Hoses Polymer Anti-Static Liner

Offering all the benefits of standard PTFE but the anti-static liner is essential where there is a risk of the build up of an electrostatic charge when conveying flammable liquids such as fuels and solvents.

Available with 304 stainless steel overbraid and polymer braid. Please specify your application and HD&F can assist in recommending a suitable assembly.
