The metal hose mainly absorbs the lateral and axial displacement in by the system. In addition to ensuring its degree of freedom in install, it can also be absorbed through the piping layout. While the common piping method is L type and Z type.
The install method is common and the overall layout is neat and beautiful. Besides, it reduces the length of the pipe. Then it reduces the the fluid resistance. However, the axial stress from the pipeline will act on the metal hose and the nozzle of the oil storage tank. Thereby shorten the service life of the hose and valve. It also damages the nozzle, then cause the oil to leak.
The length of the pipe and the number of elbows increase. However, it can absorb the axial displacement of the piping system by itself. While that reduces the axial stress on the metal hose and the nozzle. Then it helps prolong the service life. It also makes the system stable. As for safety and service life, Z type is better than L type. So it is better to choose Z type when the plane position allows.
