Stainless corrugated steel hoses

Our stainless corrugated steel hoses

The stainless steel corrugated hose is one of the great specialities of Pathel Industrie. We have a manufacturing workshop able to supply custom-made hoses with short lead-times.

A stainless steel hose consists of a stainless steel braiding to maintain pressure, and a flexible helix inside. For high pressures, Pathel Industrie has double braided hoses. A protective spring can also be positioned along the whole length of the hose in order to prevent frictions and damage to the braid. Or, at the edge of each side of the hose, we can install a bend restriction system to prevent the hose from breaking. We offer 316 or 321 hoses with 304 stainless steel wire braiding.

The main advantages of stainless steel corrugated hoses

  • High mechanical resistance for a reasonable weight
  • Use at extreme temperatures from -270°C to +700°C (For temperatures of more than 50°C, a coefficient of correction has to be applied to the maximum working pressure.
  • Good resistance to corrosion, abrasion, mould and fire.
  • Very good absorption of vibrations from pumps, compressors, motors, etc.
  • Good mechanical resistance to sudden changes of temperature.
