STAINLESS STEEL BRAID

Unbraided corrugated hoses tend to elongate when pressurized above a certain level. To restrain this, an external layer of stainless steel wire braiding is provided on the hose. Braiding prevents longitudinal expansion of corrugated hose and thus increases the internal pressure strengthen of the hose many fold. Braiding is highly flexible and exactly follows the movements of the hose.

To increase the pressure ratings further, two or even three layers of braiding are provided. Unless specified, braiding in high tensile stainless steel AISI 304 wire, will be supplied. In special case for bulk requirement braid can also be supplied in stainless steel AISI 316.
