Later, people cover rubber, plastic or nylon on the corrugated hose surface. Then arm it with metal wire or metal net. Besides, people create various fittings. With such effort, many types of metal hose appear for different usages.
Stress of flexible metal hose during the install
In the complex pipelines, the space limit usually cause difficulty to install. For example, formed hose can’t install. While even if you install it, there will be inevitable cold correction. Based on the diameter and in-site situation, the cold correction could be several to decades mm. However, it could be hundreds of mm in some cases. Practice improves that the bigger the correction is, the large the stress will be. While such stress reserved in the pipeline is a huge risk.
A piece of duct in the engine usually crack during the work. That is because the stress is over high. Metal hose is flexible and you can bend it on your will. Besides, the stress is small on bend condition. Thus it brings convenience to install. And it also has protect the pipe system work safely. These are the reasons why some pipelines have to be metal hose.
