• A heavy braid also increases abrasion resistance
  • An annular hose is better suited for pump connections because it can better sustain torsion stress due to longitudinal expansion from rises in pressure
  • Braided connectors have the advantages of:
  • Flexible connectors are used to absorb thermal and seismic movement, absorb hydraulic shock, provide vibration and noise dampening, ease installation and correct minor misalignment of piping and components
  • Metal wire braid on a hose assembly restrains against hose elongation under higher pressures and acts to dampen vibration
  • Optimal braid coverage will contain the core under pressure and reduce the possibility of twisting and squirming
  • The inner hose is an annular (bellows) design
  • The use of braided metal connectors for applications such as pumps, compressors and other mechanical equipment can enhance the overall operation of a system
  • They come in a variety of sizes, materials, and connection ends for numerous applications
