Metal Hose Assemblies

FlexEJ designs and manufactures fully engineered stainless steel metal hose assemblies in diameters from DN6 to DN200; larger diameters are also available. Metal hose assemblies are widely used in a variety of applications and industries. FlexEJ regularly supplies for use in the oil, petrochemical, nuclear and gas environments, both in the UK and for export. Used in pipework design, metal hose assemblies can correct for piping misalignment, accommodate movement, absorb vibration and help suppress transmitted noise.

There are typically three components to metal hose assembly : the hose, the braid and the end fittings. Corrugated stainless steel hose can be supplied either without braiding or with one or two braidings. There is a great variety of possible end fittings and connections, typically the two end fittings are dissimilar; we can accommodate virtually any requirement.

FlexEJ's stainless steel hose is qualified to ISO10380 and can be supplied with external braid as required to meet the service conditions.

All FlexEJ metal hose assemblies can be engineered in-house to suit the client’s pressure, temperature, movements or vibration applications. Or we can work to the client's drawings and calculations.

Alternatively our EPDM rubber hose range can be braided with a stainless steel outer braid (usually with nickel plated brass end fittings).
