Corrugated metal hoses are flexible, durable, and high-performance hoses that are widely used in various industries such as aerospace, chemical, oil and gas, and more. This blog will go into more detail about Corrugated metal hoses and their uses, and more.
What exactly are Corrugated Metal Hoses?
Corrugated metal hoses are flexible, durable, and high-performance hoses that are widely used in various industries such as aerospace, chemical, oil and gas, and more. They are made from thin sheets of metal that are corrugated to create a series of ridges and grooves, which give the hose its flexibility and strength.
These hoses are typically used to transfer liquids, gases, or granular materials in a variety of applications, such as conveying steam, hydraulic fluids, or chemicals. They are also used as vibration dampeners, compensators for thermal expansion, and as protective covers for cables and wires.
How they are constructed
The construction of corrugated metal hoses typically consists of three layers: the corrugated metal tube, the braid layer, and the end fittings. The corrugated metal tube is the main structural component of the hose and provides flexibility and strength. The braid layer is made from woven metal wire or synthetic fibres and provides additional strength and protection against external damage. The end fittings are used to connect the hose to the system it is being used in and are typically made from metal.
Advantages of Corrugated Metal Hoses
- Physical strength and light weight are combined.
- Wide temperature range (-200°C to +550°C) compatibility
- Excellent corrosion resistance. Fire, moisture, abrasion, and penetration resistance.
- Absorbs vibration and noise from pumps, compressors, and engines, among other things.
- Makes up for irregular or constant movement.
- Makes up for piping thermal expansion and contraction.
- Corrects misalignment issues.
- In difficult locations, a flexible and quick alternative to rigid piping.
Corrugated metal hose has good flexibility, fatigue resistance, high temperature resistance, excellent corrosion resistance, and many other features, and it has a much longer lifespan than other types of hose (rubber hose, plastic hose). With modern industrial development, high and low temperature, high pressure, and corrosion of corrugated metal hose is becoming increasingly popular.

What is a corrugated hose used for?
Corrugated hoses are completely leak-proof and are used to transport liquids or gases under pressure, as well as vacuum lines. They are also known as pressure hoses. Their unique design achieves flexibility as well as pressure resistance.
Metal hose is commonly used in piping situations such as:
- The pipe system must be able to absorb heat or pressure-induced expansion.
- There is a requirement to compensate for misalignment or to allow lateral system movements during exploitation.
Flexible metal hose provides solutions to a number of issues that affect HVAC and industrial piping systems. They eliminate pipe misalignments, absorb thermal expansion and contraction, and lessen vibration.
Typically, bronze, 300 series stainless steel, Monel, Hastelloy, or Inconel are used to make corrugated hose.
Corrugated hose is primarily used to stop vibration from pumps, compressors, and other power systems from travelling to nearby piping. When positioning and connecting, caution is essential. The hose must be securely fastened to the machinery, perpendicular to the vibration, and with the other end rigidly anchored in order to effectively control vibration.
