MDC Europe flexible, stainless steel hose is useful in
situations where standard straight-line plumbing is
impractical or where vibration isolation is necessary.
The hose consists of stainless steel formed bellows
covered with an optional tough metal braid of the same
material. The flexible braid protects the bellows from
abrasion or impact and provides external support to a
component that tends to move under vacuum. The hose
provides great flexibility, strength and durability, and is
Hoses with CF flanges provide a complete metal air-tovacuum
seal required for UHV applications.
Note Large internal surface area requires lengthy pumping
to achieve UHV pressures.
Care must be taken when installing to not exceed the
specified bend radius. The static bend radius of a flex hose
is the minimum radius a hose can be curved without
encountering permanent deformation.
Because all flex hoses compress when subjected to internal
vacuum pressures, equipment connected to either end of a
flex hose must be securely anchored. Atmospheric
pressure exerts a substantial force and can move roughing
pumps or other light, non-secured components.
Allows for connection between misaligned pumps and chambers
Provides vibration isolation from mechanical pumps
All-metal flange hose bakeable to 450°C
Thin wall braided
