Braided Annular Flexible Hose

Mason UK can provide a range of stainless steel braided annular flexible hose. These flexible pipe connectors are suitable for use with corrosive fluids, gases or temperatures and pressures outside of the rubber range.

Stainless Steel Flexible Connectors contribute to the solution of vibration, noise, expansion and offset motion problems in piping systems. Assemblies are designed for both high and low temperatures, as well as high pressure and full vacuum.

Stock sizes include 1/2” (13mm) through 16” (400mm) pipe diameter. Temperature ranges are from below 0°F (-18°C) to 850°F (454°C) when using our standard 304 stainless steel. On rare occasions, when temperatures as high as 1500°F (816°C) are needed, Type 316 or 321 are available too. Most standard construction is single braided, but we can provide double braid for higher pressures or omit the braid for low pressure venting or exhaust applications. Available with a variety of pipe fitting ends including; floating or raised face fixed flanges, threaded or grooved nipples and cooper sweat ends.

Stainless Steel Flexible Pipe Connectors

Stainless steel connectors are used where movement is required between two pipes or pieces of equipment. They are mainly required when pipes have to bridge building expansion joints or to allow for movement of mechanical equipment.

Vee Assemblies

Many buildings are separated by expansion joints through the walls and floors. During an earthquake the two adjacent parts resonate with relatve motion of as much as +/- 100mm in shear as well as toward and away from one another.

Expansion Compensators

Expansion Compensators are essentially a bellows that is protected by and guided within a pipe housing, and designed to give improved stability.

Bellows Pump Connectors

All bellows differ from stainless steel hose in the corrugation configurations. Bellows are deeper and wider and they are made from a heavier material to handle the pressure without the braid. A very common location of our 2 ply bellows is at the pumps.

Adjustable Sliding Guides

Mason Adjustable Sliding Guides (ASG) are pipe guides that can be installed in any orientation. They come is a range of standard sizes to suit pipes from 20mm to 300mm in diameter. Larger Guides are available on request. Full details can be found in the attached bulletin below.
