Providing Solutions Using Flexible Stainless Steel Metal Hose Assemblies

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

Over the last 20 years we’ve seen more and more innovative uses for metal hoses in solving everyday problems. Some examples include:

Piping Vibration – Metal Hoses if selected properly can be used to prevent damage to piping and equipment. Pumps, Compressors and Engines can transmit excessive vibration, and the right metal hose assembly can solve the problem.

Pressure Gauge Remote Mounting – Use a metal hose assembly to remote mount the pressure gauge instead of bending tubing. Great labor saver!

Replace bent piping assemblies - Some equipment such as large engines may need maintenance on a regular basis. Replacing  the OEM pre-bent pipe assemblies with metal hose can shorten turnaround time and low labor costs.

Metal Hoses on Rotary Joints – These can be a maintenance nightmare if improperly selected or installed wrong. Our “Dogleg” assemblies and ultra-flexible hose can correct the problem.

Temporary connections – Need a temporary water line or steam line? A Metal hose can quickly solve the problem.

What else? If the application is hot or cold, wiggles or jiggles or just plain moves, we can help you out 99% of the time (we’re not perfect). Give us a call.
