Armadillo Hose Stripwound Metal
Hose made by helically winding a pre-formed metal strip into a fully interlocked profile. The hose gets its flexibility and suppleness from the sliding of metal components within the interlock section. A series of flats are built into the hose wall to give the hose anti‑torsion properties. Armadillo will not unwind when cut, so eliminating the need to tack weld the hose before cutting to length.
BOP Armour cover over for mechanical protection and heat deflection.
• Manufactured to the specifications where applicable ISO 15465 Type DOU.
• Whilst this hose cannot be expected to retain gas or materials under pressure, it can generally be used for pressures up to 1 bar (100 kpa) where the discharge end of the hose is open ended. We recommend the use of wide band sealing clamps for Armadillo hose, as sealing of ends can be a problem if standard U-bolt type clamps are used.
• Supply Lengths – 32 – 152mm. 3, 9 metres. Longer lengths are available on special order.
