There are two different types of metal hoses, which differ in construction and application: corrugated hoses and stripwound hoses.
Corrugated hoses are leak-tight and are employed to convey pressurised liquids and gases or as vacuum lines. Corrugated hoses are also employed as flexible connecting elements, as filling hoses, to absorb movements, thermal expansions or vibrations.
Stripwound hoses are made from profiled strip that is coiled spirally so that it interlocks. Depending on the application situation, stripwound hoses are made from interlocked or engaged profiles – from the highly flexible engaged profile through to the sturdy interlocked version.
Stripwound hoses are frequently used as flexible, heat and ageing-resistant elements in exhaust gas technology, as protective conduits for electric cables or light conductors and as extraction and delivery hoses.
