Metal flexible strip wound hoses SAGRAR
Flexible metallic strip wound tubes are manufactured from a helically wound pre-formed strip, generally with right-hand lead where the turns, with or without packing, are connected together by single or double overlapping. The flexibility is obtained by sliding adjacent turns on each other.There are three types of strip wound tubes distinguished by their principle of manufacture and sealing characteristic:
- leak proof tubes: suitable in applications for pressure (pressure tubes),
- tubes with limited leak profess: suitable in applications with low pressures and permissible leakage loss of fluid (extraction and exhaust tubes),
- non-leak proof tubes: suitable in applications without pressure (protective tubes).
Flexible metallic tubes usually in heavy-duty conditions. In comparison with rigid tubes, they have less thickness of wall and therefore shall have superior anti-corrosive. The ideal materials to be used in the manufacture of flexible metallic tubes must meet the following requirements:
- working ability by plastic deformation,
- good strength properties,
- optimum thermal stability,
- anti-corrosive properties,
- reliability in operation.
- stainless steel AISI 304 W.Nr. 1.4301,
- galvanized steel
Metal flexible hose type Sagrar Inox, Sagrar, and Sagrar with linerDescription:
Double interlocked tube without sealing thread with limited leakproofness.
SAGRAR and SAGRAR INOX are distinguished only by used material.
- SAGRAR: galvanized steel
- SAGRAR INOX: Stainless steel AISI 304
Tube is made without sealing thread, but its construction ensures limited leakproofness.
DN 12 to DN 400.
- SAGRAR INOX: max +750 oC.
- SAGRAR: max +600 oC (beginning of zinc oxidation is at + 230 oC).
Tubes are used for conveying at low pressures and permissible leakage loss of fluid. Typical example of application is in exhausting system for motor vehicles as an elastic element. Besides, the tubes can be used as mechanical protection of rubber tubes, electrical cables etc (against strokes, squeezing etc).
