Flexible metal hoses are recommended for jumpover connections, loading/unloading stations, and piping/equipment connections. Jacketed hoses can be manufactured for hard-to-handle processes such as sulfur and asphalt.
Hoses feature a corrugated stainless steel core (either Type 321 or 316) covered by a Type 304 stainless steel braid. Higher alloy core materials are also available for severe process conditions. A wide variety of hose sizes (1/2 to 12 in. OD), lengths, and end fittings is available.
