Offset installations corrugated metal hose

 

description

A common application for corrugated metal hose assemblies is to accommodate offset movement ie where the hose moves away from the centre line in a single plane.

This movement may arise to:

- correct or compensate for a misalignment in or between rigid pipework, usually a static application

- allow for small amounts of thermal expansion or intermittent offset movements ( e.g. seismic)

It is necessary, of course, to take into account not only the lengths of the fittings themselves but also of the end parts of the hose considered as not flexible.
