Metal Hose Pump Connectors
Flexible pump connectors also know as metal hose pump connectors. help protect your equipment by absorbing vibrations and noise, connects misaligned rigid piping, connects moving parts of machinery or equipment. Therefore, is practical for hooking up frequently moved or dismantled equipment. Also the metal hose and braid are very heavy duty industrial products.
Depending on the application will decide if a metal product is needed in the first place. Next is to decide if the application better for a hose or metal expansion joint. Expansion joints are better used to handle axial movements. Metal bellows also know as metal expansion joint is better to handle vibration.
Stainless Steel Braided Flexible Pump Connectors
Stainless Steel Braided Flexible Pump Connectors are made from a standard flexible corrugated 321 stainless steel core hose covered by a 304 SS wire braid, other materials are available. The standard is Flat face flange end connections. but are also available with: (Male nipples, 150# R.F., 300#, Grooved, Unions, Weld ends, JIC, other specially designed connectors in Carbon Steel, Stainless). Furthermore, The wire-braided cover is used over the flexible core hose to provide additional strength for the rated operating pressure. Assemblies available unbraided, single, or double braided.
Flexible Pump Connectors help protect your equipment by absorbing vibrations and noise. As well as connects misaligned rigid piping. Also connects moving parts of machinery or equipment. And is practical for hooking up frequently moved or dismantled equipment.
Braid & Braided Product
We supply a wide variety of braid and braided products. Braid is a flexible wire sheath surrounding a metal hose that prevents the hose from elongation created by internal pressure. Braid is composed of a number of wires wrapped helically around the hose while at the same time going under and over each other in a basket weave fashion.
Our braid is produced and stocked in various alloys including:
- 304L, 316L and 321 Stainless Steel
- Monel 400
- Hastelloy C276
- Inconel alloy 625
Other alloys and material of construction are available upon request.
PFPC – Flanged Pump Connectors
In this paragraph, I’m going to tell you about key features of flanged pump connectors. Firstly they are designed to absorb vibration in a piping system. Secondly flanged pump connectors are 321 or 316L stainless steel corrugated hose and braid. Next they are ASTM A36L stainless steel class 150 slip-on plate flanges.
TC – Threaded Pump Connectors
In this paragraph, I’m going to tell you about threaded pump connectors. Firstly threaded pump connectors are designed to absorb vibration in piping system. Secondly they are 321 or 316L stainless steel corrugated house or steel braid. Lastly they are schedule 40 carbon steel, 304 or 316 male nipple ends.
