Hose Specification - SS Metal Series

Description:

MSS4/MSS6 Annular construction hose of all stainless steel in either 304SS or 316L SS. Metal hose features machined weld fittings, double pass welding (TIG) and extremely flexible hose capable of high pressures. Temperature rated from cryogenic to +1500°E MSS4/MSS6 series SS metal hose assemblies feature annular corrugated inner metal j-hose and 304 SS braid reinforcement that allows for the transfer of liquids or gases, usually at high pressure and high or cryogenic temperatures.

 

Specifying the Proper Metal Hose
  • What media is to be conveyed?
    Select from Flexible Components Type 304 or Type 316L stainless inner core materials.

  • Corrosion.

  • Inside diameter (ID) of hose.

  • Relationship or pressure rating, temperature and
    type of service.

  • Maximum service temperature
      316L stainless steel = +1500°F
      304 stainless steel = +850°F.

Features:
  • Flexible, low force to fend, small bend radius.
  • Custom fabrication available to meet
  • customers specifications.
  • Fully qualified and certified welders.
Markets:
  • Industrial
  • Chemical
  • Gas & cryogenic
Applications:
  • Steam lines: For high pressure applications over 450°F.
  • Cryogenic transfer: For "liquefied" gas.
  • Conveying lines for steam, cryogenic fluids, chemical transfer of liquids, gases and vapors.
  • Absorbs vibration and deadens noise in rigid systems.
  • Vacuum tight.
  • Handles high pressures.
  • Corrosion resistant.
  • Non-aging/non-flammable.
Temperature Rating:

-460°F (-273°C) to +1500°F(+816°C)

Pressure Range:

3250 psig operating pressure to 185 psig depending on inside diameter and operation temperature (see temperature correction chart). Operating pressures based on 4:1 safety factor; operating pressure x4=rated minimum burst pressure at 70°F (21°C).
