How to Choose High-Quality Metal Conduit?

Sep. 19, 2020

As a Flexible Metal Conduit Factory, share with you. The quality and inferiority of metal conduits can be judged based on the following 4 points.

Flexible Metal Conduit

1. Plasticity to facilitate the forming and processing of stainless steel metal conduits, and through subsequent treatment processes, such as work hardening, heat treatment, etc., to obtain sufficient hardness and strength.

2. Corrosion resistance, high-quality stainless steel metal conduit pipes must have strong corrosion resistance to meet the different working environment requirements of bellows.

3. High elasticity, tensile strength and fatigue strength. With these three properties, it can ensure the normal operation of the stainless steel metal conduit.

4. Weldability to meet the requirements of metal conduits in different pipelines' actual working conditions. To

Metal conduit has good flexibility, temperature, pressure resistance, and corrosion resistance, and is suitable for the transportation of various industrial gases such as steam, water, petroleum, and medicines. Heat shrinkage absorption and vibration absorption play an important role in the movement of the piping system. The model length and connection method are based on user requests.

Stainless steel pressure-resistant metal conduit is made of stainless steel corrugated pipe, with one or more layers of steel wire or steel belt mesh sleeve, with joints or flanges at both ends, which are used to transport flexible components of various media. Features: corrosion resistance, high temperature resistance, low temperature resistance (196°C, +420°C), light weight, small size, and good flexibility.

It is widely used in aviation, aerospace, petroleum, chemical, metallurgy, electric power, papermaking, wood, textile, construction, medicine, food, tobacco, transportation and other industries. The stainless steel metal conduit (metal bellows) business unit produces stainless steel metal conduits, stainless steel bellows, and stainless steel metal soft joints.

Generally speaking, metal conduits can be divided into three lengths: the first is the compressed length, which is the length when the conduit is compressed to the extreme position; the second is the length of the device, which is when the conduit is in the middle of the maximum displacement length. The third is the stretch length, when the conduit stretches to its maximum length.

The metal conduit can be compressed or stretched, but if it is not installed in the correct position, it will break quickly and reduce its service life. The device of the metal conduit should be in the middle of the conduit, the so-called device length. The device condition is at this position, the conduit can have two directions for axial load, otherwise, if it is only in one direction, it will affect the strength of the metal conduit and reduce the service life. The metal conduit can be installed horizontally or vertically or diagonally. Ideally, they should be installed vertically and should be prevented from approaching the wheels.
