Flexible hose with the strength of steel

Copy of section_nobg

Meet Swagelok's FX Series metal hose, a double-braided hose series offering 1/4-inch to 2 inch nominal hose sizes with a temperature range of –325 to 1000°F (–200 to 537°C) and working pressure ranges from vacuum to 6000 psig through vacuum to 1122 psig.

It's all corrosion-resistant metal, from the 316L stainless steel annular convoluted core to the 321 stainless steel double braid layers to the 316 stainless steel end connections, which are welded to the 304 stainless steel collar. It can handle high pressure corrosive environments, high-temperature vacuum environments, and is an excellent choice anywhere permeation is undesirable.

Range of end connection options

You have your choice of end connections: Swagelok Tube Adaptors, Swagelok Tube Fittings, female VCO O-ring Face seals, SAE 37-degree (JIC) female swivels, female pipe threads, male pipe threads and tube butt welds. And, as with many other Swagelok hoses, you can get optional hose covers, hose tags and helium leak testing.

Assembly

There's a second kind of flexibility that comes with our hose: the flexibility to have our certified technicians provide and assemble components to meet your exacting requirements. We can provide high-volume tube bending and swaging, orbital welding, custom hose cutting and end connection selection.

Get the literature or get in touch

Good news: In one step you can get the Swagelok hose and flexible tubing catalogue, Hose Quick Look poster, and six product test reports. The catalogue contains detailed information on Swagelok's FX Series metal hose starting on page 11:
