Flexible metal lined lead / hose Series

Weldcoa also offers a wide variety of flexible metal lined leads and hoses for compressed gas and cryogenic liquid applications. 

NEED A LEAD OR HOSE THAT REQUIRES MORE? NO PROBLEM, WE HAVE YOU COVERED.

Flexible Corrugated Metal Leads are the choice when low diffusion rates and higher integrity are required. The inner liner is made from two plies of metal strip that are formed into a helical profile and resistance welded. Because it is not mechanically formed from tubing it is extremely flexible and does not contain the residual stresses like traditional mechanically-formed helical hose. A single stainless steel braid is used to further increase the working pressure. Because the lead is lined with metal, it will not diffuse small molecules.

Inside of Flexible Metal Lined Lead

 

Weldcoa’s Flexible Metal Cryogenic Hoses are the choice for highly flexible hoses with an excellent cycle life. The inner liner is made from a single strip of stainless steel that is welded into a tube and hydraulically formed into the flexible corrugated shape. Because it is not mechanically formed from tubing it is extremely flexible and does not contain the residual stresses like traditional mechanically- formed helical hose. A stainless steel braid is used to further increase the working pressure.

SAFETY FEATUREs

Quality control methods and meticulous attention to detail throughout the testing and cleaning process ensure that our customers will receive a leak-free lead that will provide years of service. 

  • Maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) is based on a 4:1 Safety Factor. Therefore all of our metal lined leads' minimum burst level is Four Times Maximum Allowable Working Pressure
  • Every lead is 100% Hydrostatically pressure tested to 1.5 times the MAWP
  • Then 100% Helium leak tested
  • Then 100% Externally cleaned to remove manufacturing lubricants and debris
  • Then 100% Internally oxygen cleaned, dried, bagged to the highest safety standards including CGA's 4.1 requirements. 
  • All Weldcoa Leads and Hoses are made in the USA
