Bronze Flexible Connectors
Need flexibility in your copper piping? The METALFLEX bronze/copper components are the #1 choice coast to coast. METALFLEX is the industry leader when it comes to bronze components. Bronze hose offers good corrosion resistance, especially in water systems, without the risk of galvanic corrosion, while offering the flexibility benefits required. You will find bronze flexible connectors in many hot and cold water supply lines, heating and cooling systems and oil and gas lines.
Our expertise in this product line has developed through 40 years of research in the high pressure copper/bronze attachment methods. We take the extra time and labor to properly prepare an assembly and have developed trade secrets to ensure a long life. METALFLEX is constantly reviewing new filler rods and procedures which insures you the finest copper alloy flex component found anywhere in the industry. Our bronze hose has the highest copper to brass ratio available, which insures you, our customer, that only the finest quality product is being delivered to your job site or being installed in your facility.
Stainless Steel Flexible Connectors
METALFLEX stainless steel components offer flexibility to a piping system where rigid connections would not be practical. Metal hose gives you a wide range of temperature extremes and corrosion resistance. It offers the high strength solution to your piping offset and vibration needs while reducing noise and eliminating stress within your system.
Non-Metallic Flexible Connectors
Not every hose at METALFLEX is metal. We also offer a wide variety of NON-METALLIC HOSE ASSEMBLIES. Teflon hose is available with stainless steel braiding or rubber covered, and smooth-bore or convoluted. Let our design staff review your flexibility requirements, and help you with your selection. Need high pressure? Our dense-pak ultra high pressure assembly will solve your problems. We also provide sanitary hose for the food and pharmaceutical industry with USDA, 3A, and FDA approvals. If it is a rubber hose you need, we can do that too. From hydraulics to fuel, oil, air, water, suction, discharge, or material handling, we have a hose to suit you.
Custom Flexible Connectors
CUSTOM ASSEMBLIES are no problem for METALFLEX. In fact every flex is custom-made here. But quite often, you need something a little different. We can help design a metal hose to fit your needs.
Our standard hose is a heavy wall with good flexibility. METALFLEX does offer an extra heavy wall hose for high pressure and highly corrosive applications. There are also cases where you may need more flexibility. This is where our Max-Flex hose comes in. The Max-Flex hose offers a higher corrugation count, which is teamed with a high density wire braiding to offer you extra flexibility, with high pressure capabilities.
Jacketed hoses and traced metal hoses are used in many high-temperature applications, where flexibility without temperature loss are requirements. The introduction of super heated steam, water or oil into the outer jacket or inner traced metal hose insures your media maintains the required temperature as it passes through the transfer hose.
Reducing connectors are true “labor savers”, eliminating the need of a separate reducing spool and decreasing the amount of space required to complete the reduction. Trying to use a threaded fitting on a flanged system? No problem. We can simply use a flex connector with multiple end configurations to match your pipe. For high velocity and turbulent media, an internal interlock liner may be required, or for added external protection, the same interlock hose can be used. For extreme temperature hoses, adding a silicon rubber/fiberglass flexible “fire sleeve” can not only help protect the hose but also acts as an insulator. Need special tagging? We can label your hoses just about any way you would like. And yes we are a Coast Guard Certified hose manufacturer.
Tired of those metric imported flex lines? Ask about our special metric to U.S. thread adapters and flex lines. The 8,10,12 week deliveries from Europe are eliminated.
METALFLEX is your CUSTOM ASSEMBLY source.
METALFLEX components are specially designed to perform within your specific application. When needed, multiple layers of braid yield higher working pressures. The higher quality T-321alloy stainless is the METALFLEX standard inner core material. This stainless steel is far superior in temperature capabilities and corrosion resistance to the T-304 alloy which is normally found in today’s U.S. distribution. Specialty alloys such as T-316, monel, and hastelloy are all available when required.
With a seemingly endless array of end fittings and material choices, METALFLEX can design the flex to meet your requirements.
