Corrugated Hose—Look At What You Don’t See

28 May 15

Corrugated hose withstands pressure. This is due to the stainless steel wiring use which is braided over the hose. Either single-braiding or double-braiding is used depending upon the working pressure involved. Not only is pressure containment important but chemical compatibility as well as flexibility is equally important in the design of these high-end hoses.

Pressure containment means the hose is strong enough to handle outside pressures including increase in temperature and shock pressure. Chemical compatibility means that the environment where the hosing will be utilized meets the corrosion standards of the engineering industry including the proper material. Flexibility is necessary so that the hose’s minimum bend radius is less than that which is required for the application it’s being utilized for.


US Hose medium pressure braided hose encompass both helical and annular corrugated hose manufacturing techniques. Made to specifications, examples include US Hose Style “RT-6″ interlock hose which is a stripwound flexible hose manufactured using high quality stainless steel and galvanized steel strips that provides durability and long life. It is used in a variety of applications such as

  • Automotive exhaust
  • Refrigeration tubing armor
  • Wiring conduit
  • External armoring on other products
  • Air Blower Ducting

An additional example includes US Hose Series USCX, a directly braided super flexible hose designed for light weight and continuous handling and flexing applications. There is the T321, a stainless steel annular formed corrugated hose with a single layer of T304 stainless steel wire braid as well as the T316L, a stainless steel annular formed corrugated hose with a single layer of T304 stainless steel wire braid. This hose is available as directly braided hose on reels.

Mission-critical applications are entrusted with US Hose Corp’s expertise. Our design and mechanical processes ensure a quality product is produced as we provide the long term ability to meet your requirements for today and the future.
