Hydraflex's range of Metal Hose Pump Connectors are integral components designed to handle thermal expansion in piping systems and mitigate vibration from pumps. Being a reputable UK-based manufacturer, Hydraflex tailors these connectors to a diverse clientele both locally and internationally​​.

Construction and Compliance

The construction of these connectors involves high-quality materials like Stainless Steel 316L for the hose and Stainless Steel AISI 304/304L for the braid. The connectors are capable of withstanding a temperature range of -269°C to +600°C, and are available in sizes ranging from ¼” NB to 16” NB. They are manufactured following the ISO 10380:2012 standards, ensuring compliance with the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED 2014/68/EU). All units undergo a 100% pressure test at 1.5 times the design pressure, emphasizing their robust construction and compliance to industry standards​​.
