Metalflex Stainless Steel Powerforce Series

Metalflex Stainless Steel Powerforce Series

Metalflex are proud to introduce our Powerforce metallic hose range.

Our Powerforce range consisting of the 1000 series, 2000 series and 3000 series is a range of high performance engineered flexible stainless steel hoses, with an optional stainless steel protective braid.

The advantage of metallic hoses over other materials are their capability to withstand higher temperatures, impacts and corrosive substances and atmospheres. Corrugated Stainless Steel hoses are seamless, making them ideal for the conveyance of liquids and gases under pressure.

This range is available either ’core only’ or with single or double braiding for greater endurance against pressure, vibration and abrasive attack.

Our Powerforce range is most commonly used for different oils and gases of different pressures and temperatures.

 


 

Please note: When using the specification sheets below. Anywhere three different figures are given under each other in the same column. They will be for ’Core only’ ’Single braid’ and ’Double braid’ in that order.

While metallic hoses can withstand very high temperatures the operating temperature of the application will have a direct relationship on the hose, lowering the capability of the hose the hotter it gets. Please see the temperature correction chart for more information.

All 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.
