The wide range of applications of corrugated hoses made of stainless steel includes the absorption of vibrations or movements in a pipeline and even the flexible transport of gases or liquids under pressure or vacuum.
The corrugated hoses are produced from thin-walled stainless steel tubes, welded with a longitudinal seam and formed hydraulically or mechanically in special machines.
A distinction is made between the following types in the further course of production:
- Corrugated stainless steel hose, which guarantees pressure stabilisation and absorption of the reaction forces by means of a wire mesh
- Corrugated stainless steel hose without braid, which flexibly connects various components using vacuum technology
