Armor Casing – Stainless Steel Hose Covering to Protect Process Hoses

KEY FEATURES

  • Protects rubber-covered or stainless steel overbraided hose of fluoropolymers and other interior rubber materials such as EPDM
  • Guards against harsh environments and rough handling
  • Durable, segmented construction allows flexibility as it prevents kinking
  • Protects exterior hose surfaces from abrasion
  • Crush-resistant — adds a layer of protection against compression damage
  • Provides an added degree of safety in cases of interior hose failure
  • Fits hoses ranging in size from 1/2" to 2" I.D.
  • Works in conjunction with stainless steel crimp rings for secure attachment to hose assemblies
  • Crimp rings offer a smooth, burr-free finish
  • Use Armor Casing along the entire length of a hose or Armor Cuffs at the ends only to reduce stress and kink potential at fitting connections
  • Ready-to-install hose assemblies complete with Armor Casing can often be fabricated in a few days

 

Armor Casing

Stainless Steel Hose Covering

Armor casing, manufactured from durable stainless steel, provides a protective covering for hoses. Intended to encase rubber or stainless steel overbraided hose, Armor Casing prevents hoses from kinking while still allowing flexibility. It is used on hoses typically found in the food, beverage, diary, chemical, and cosmetic industries as well as other process applications.
