DESCRIPTION

HydraFlex Stainless steel annular corrugated hoses assemblies with KF vacuum flanges are widely used within Vacuum engineering applications, they offer a high degree of flexibility and quick to connect - therefore commonly used within Laboratories, test rigs, and in many research departments - Annularly corrugated hoses and bellows can be used within Ultra-High Vacuum applications and can resist temperatures in excess of 650°C. The hose and braid is manufactured in accordance with ISO 10380 : 2012.

TYPE 700 – HEAVY DUTY HOSE

TEMPERATURE / PRESSURE CORRECTION

END FITTINGS – HALF SECTION

PRESSURE DROP

The Pressure loss in corrugated hose is 100% higher than in new welded steel pipes. This means that in the case of corrugated hose an increase in diameter of approximately 15% is required to reduce the pressure loss to the value of pressure loss in steel pipes.

To utilise the chart…

  1. Identify the flow rate required on the base line (Horizontal Axis).
  2. Where the vertical line, that references to the nominal bore of the hose, intersects a horizontal line - Establish the pressure drop on the Vertical Axis.
