When pressure is applied, unbraided corrugated hose tend to elongate axially. To restrain this, an external layer of SS wire braid is provided. The braid also makes the assembly pressure resistant.
Some times two or even three layers of braiding are provided for high pressure applications. The braiding is highly flexible and follows the movement of the hose.
The braid is normally manufactured in SS 304 wire. However SS 316 and SS 321 braid can also be manufactured. We also supply wire braid in different configurations as per customer specifications.
