Interlocked Exhaust Hose

Polygonal interlocked exhaust hose
Our Polygonal shape interlocked hose is made out of standard thickness material and is lightly wound, resulting in a lesser seal which is used for open-ended and low pressure applications and applications where flexibility is required.

The polygonal shape of the product prevents it from unwinding when it is cut to length. The bore range is from 1-¼ (32 mm) to 6 inches (150 mm) inside diameter. The maximum temperature rating is 600 Degrees Celsius due to the standard materials used.

Applications: exhaust hose, flexible hose assembly armour casing, hose assembly liner, electronic shielding and cable and wire protection.

Polygonal Interlocked Exhaust Hose

We stock from 1/4” to 12” nominol bore convoluted stainless steel flexible metal hose for custom made and large bore exhaust assemblies.

Because of its design, care should be taken about the installation length and the flow direction of the interlocked hose. The length difference between fully compressed and fully extended may be as great as 20%. Interlocked hose performs best at the midpoint between fully compressed and fully extended. Keep this in mind when you need to work out an overall length of the installation. The flow direction of the interlocked hose can be checked by running your finger in the inside of the hose in fully compressed state; the right direction is the smoother surface feeling. See arrow on our illustration.

3S exhaust interlocked premium hose

3S exhaust circular shape interlocked hose is made out of standard thickness material but due to the preformed strip shape we create a double wall thickness resulting in a premium exhaust hose with greater pressure seal and temperature rating.

Due to its overlapping construction it has a larger bend radius than the polygonal product. This product will need a small weld tag to prevent it from unwinding when it is cut to length.

The bore range is from 3 (76 mm) to 6 inches (150 mm) inside diameter. Due to the double layer of material and the round shape, this interlocked hose is suitable for higher exhaust temperatures up to 700 degrees Celsius.

Applications: exhaust at higher temperatures closer to turbo, dry bulk material handling of non-abrasive media and fume and dust collection.

Because of its design, care should be taken about the installation length and the flow direction of the interlocked hose. The length difference between fully compressed and fully extended may be as great as 15%. Interlocked hose performs best at the midpoint between fully compressed and fully extended. Keep this in mind when you need to work out an overall length of the installation. The flow direction of the interlocked hose can be checked by running your finger in the inside of the hose in fully compressed state; the right direction is the smoother surface feeling.

Stainless steel lap band exhaust clamp

Stainless steel lap band exhaust clamp to connect interlocked hose to tube.

Stainless steel lap band exhaust clamps are pre-shaped to connect our interlocked hose range to solid tubing, making a simple and effective way to connect our flexible hose to exhaust system components. With this butt joint design there’s no need to separate pipes or exhaust members before clamping.

Our lap band clamps are available in standard industry tube sizes ranging from 2” (50 mm) through to 6” (150 mm). Our fastening system includes force bars, high tensile bolts, nuts, and a reaction block, which creates the power to stretch the clamp band tightly around slip joints. The reaction block provides a full 360 degree equal distribution of stretching force, preventing pipe distortion while completing a seal around the joined exhaust components.

Industrial interlocked hose

Our industrial circular interlocked hose is made out of a thicker material which makes it more resistant to abrasion and higher temperatures. The bend radius of this product is larger as the layers are tightly wound to minimise leakage through the seams. There are small indentations on the inside of the hose that prevent it from unwinding when it is cut to length. The bore range is from 1-¼ (32 mm) to 6 inches (150 mm) inside diameter. The maximum temperature rating is 650 degrees Celsius due to the heavier materials used.

Applications: exhaust at higher temperatures, dry bulk material handling of abrasive media, fume and dust collection and flexible hose assembly armour casing where a larger bend radius is required or higher temperature protection is needed.

Flexible interlocked metal diffusion armour

metal diffusion armourThis highly flexible interlocked metal diffusion armour provides crush protection for hydraulic hoses and electrical cables in most severe applications.

In test conditions the diffusion armour contained the sharp stream of hydraulic oil passing through a 1mm predrilled hole when the pressure was raised to 800 Bar and held for 1 minute with perfect fluid diffusion happening.

  • Exeeds the electrical conductivity requirements of ISO 8031
  • Crush protection properties
  • Suitable for jackhammer hoses
  • Resistant to high temperatures
  • No restriction of hose bend radius
  • If restriction of the hose bend radius is required use our industrial range
  • Full coverage of the outer surface
  • Extra insulation to retain heat or cold temperatures
  • Easy to apply
  • No tangling up in storage
