Special Hose Assemblies

For many years UNAFLEX® has combined technologies of metal hose with expansion joints into composite assemblies to perform in special applications. When an unusual or difficult problem must be solved, UNAFLEX® Engineering can create a solution. Some examples are shown below.

Large diameter metal hose are frequently the only practical transfer hose for various chemicals, particularly if elevated temperatures are included.

Need even more flexibility?

UNAFLEX® Engineering can vary core widths, height and metal gauge to provide a custom hose based on your design requirements. Consult factory for details.

Jacketed Assembly

When conveyants must be maintained at a specified temperature, steam jacketing is used frequently, often in lieu of electric tracing.

Guarded Assembly

Use of an external flexible armor protects metal hose from abuse due to rough handling, abrasion and bending below its limits. Often a rubber cover can accomplish this as well as armor if temperatures will permit.

Lined Assembly

If high conveyant velocities are required, use of an internal flexible metal liner will prevent damage and reduce abrasion problems.
