RADCOFLEX manufactures a complete range of stripwound flexible metal hoses in galvanised and stainless steels that can be used in a variety of applications and environments. 

These hoses are produced by roll forming a profile into a metal strip and helically (spirally) winding the strip over a mandrel. The hose gets its flexibility and suppleness from the sliding of metal components within the locksection. 

Some stripwound metal hoses have a packing material fed into the profiled locksection to provide the hose with pressure capabilities. 

There are two categories of stripwound hose: Interlocked and Squarelocked. 

Interlocked hoses are robust and strong even under elongated stress, and present the following advantages:

  • -They are ideal for conveying exhaust gases, grain, animal feed, pellets, dust, and as a mechanical protection for cables, wires, and other hoses;
  • -A high temperature composite packing material can be introduced to the interlocked section to increase the hoses’ pressure capabilities, and enable them to be used in more arduous industrial applications such as the conveyance of bitumen and steam.

Squarelocked hoses are supple and flexible, with the following characteristics:

  • Squarelocked metal hoses have a square ridge profile and, due to the type of locksection, are very supple and flexible;
  • A packing seal can be introduced to give the hoses a low pressure capability;
  • They are ideal for conveying sawdust, hot air fumes, or as mechanical protection for electrical wiring.

Listed below is RADCOFLEX’s range of stripwound metal hoses:

  • ADL: suited to the conveyance of dust, sawdust, shavings, fume extraction and hot gas;
  • Flexi-flue: developed for the ducting of flue gas, fumes, and smoke from wood burning stoves and fireplaces, especially when the wood has a high sulphur content;
  • HPI high pressure tight: the ideal hose for the conveyance of bitumen, corrosive fluids, oxygen, steam, abrasive and pulverised products in rigorous conditions;
  • Polylock: used primarily in the conveyance of gases in vehicle exhaust systems and for applications requiring a strong light weight materials handling hose;
  • SL: used in the large volume transfer of dry bulk materials, plastic pellets etc…, providing cost effective loading and unloading turn-around times;
  • SPI: for the conveyance of animal feed, dust, exhaust gas, hot or cold air, and armouring of technical hoses - all applications requiring a very strong, resilient and flexible hose;
  • UPI: a lighter weight version of the SPI above;
  • UPS, APS & RPS: ideal for the mechanical protection of rubber hoses, electrical wiring, hot air, and applications requiring a light and economical product.

RADCOFLEX stripwound metal hoses are manufactured in accordance with generally recognised industry standards including International Standard ISO 15465.
