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.
