When rigid connections are impractical, flexible metal hose provides non-rigid connections for conveying liquids, gases, and semi-solids.
Metal hose offers a number of advantages, including high strength, resistance to high or low-temperature extremes and corrosion resistance. It absorbs vibrations and noise, connects misaligned rigid piping, connects moving parts of machinery or equipment, and is practical for hooking up frequently moved or dismantled equipment.
Corrugated metal hose is manufactured in two basic styles: Annular and Helical. The metal choices are: Bronze, Steel, Stainless Steel, Monel and Inconel.

Annular Corrugated Hose Material
- 1/4″ I.D. thru 24″ I.D.
- Type 321 Stainless Steel
The industry standard, this chromium-nickel (18-8) steel is chemically stabilized to resist intergranular corrosion and is suitable for service from 1500°F to cryogenic (-320°F) temperatures.
- Type 316 Stainless Steel
This chromium-nickel-molybdenum (18-8-2) steel has improved corrosion resistance and is suitable for service from 900°F to cryogenic (-320°F) temperatures.
- 1/2″ I.D. thru 3″ I.D.
The nickel-copper (70-30) alloy has excellent corrosion resistance to chlorine and salt water service. This alloy is suitable for service from 900°F to cryogenic (-320°F) temperatures.
- 1/4″ I.D. thru 2″ I.D.
The copper-tin (95-5) alloy has good general corrosion resistance and is widely used in water and steam systems. This alloy is suitable for service from 400°F to cryogenic (-320°F) temperatures.
