The Stainless steel corrugated hose is especially designed to achieve several objectives in pipe work design. These include, absorption or vibration, operate under vacuum, handle temperature extremes, suppress rigid pipe noise transmitted, accommodate reciprocating and flexing movement, operate effectively under high pressures and adjust or correct for misalignment. Stainless steel corrugated hose is a general purpose industrial hose.
The corrugated hose is manufactured from a cylindrical, thin walled tube formed from rolled strip and welded at the seam. Impressed into this tube is a corrugated annular profile. Annular corrugation means each convolution is perpendicular to the centre line of the hose giving a distinct advantage of movement with each corrugation being relatively independent of movement from each other. When the corrugations are closely spaced, the hose is referred to as ‘closed pitch’ hose. Conversely, when the corrugations are more widely spaced, the hose is referred to as ‘open pitch’.
The industrial hose market is forecast to reach $14.81 billion by 2023 from $10.67 billion in 2017 at a CAGR of 5.6% during (2017-2023) driven by increasing infrastructure-related developments and growing demand for robust industrial hoses.
