High Pressure Hose & Assemblies
High Pressure Hose and Hose Assemblies
United Flexible’s core business is producing hose and assemblies with a heritage dating back over 100 years. Our global facilities offer a broad range of corrugated inner core diameters and designs, multi braiding capabilities, and engineered assembly expertise to meet applications sub-sea, on land, or even in outer space. We offer engineered solutions that address flexure, vibration, thermal or pressure related problems as well as applications involving the transfer of liquids or gases.
Our metallic hoses are usually braided to give strength when the hose is pressurized and to provide a solid protective cover during use. Typical materials such as 316L and 321 stainless steel can withstand extreme variations in temperature, from cryogenic up to 1500°F (815°C). Our fluoropolymer hose products can be found in the aerospace, compressed gas, automotive, hydraulic and food industries. The gas hoses have a core of PTFE, PFA or ETFE, with one or more layers of stainless steel braid over the tube. We also supply hoses with Kevlar under the stainless steel braid.
