High Pressure Hoses

High pressure, flexible hoses often referred to as "pigtails" are used to connect high pressure, gas cylinders to manifolds.  Hoses of this kind that are non-metallic - elastomeric or PTFE lined should be routinely replaced every five years .

In accordance with BCGA CP4, we recommend that such high pressure, flexible hoses be fitted with an anti-whip cable and that they are constructed to conform to BS EN ISO 14113.  The purpose of the anti-whip cable is to minimise or eliminiate the risk of personal injury in the event of a hose burst or failure.  Indeed, any hose operating at over 40 barG should be protected by this type of mechanism: remember - the greater the hose length, the greater the risk!

 The hoses are available in four standard lengths 600mm, 900mm, 1.8m & 3.6m complete with appropriate end fittings (cylinder connection inlet and swivel nut outlet, for fitting to the manifold).

They are available for different gases/gas mixtures:

INERT - (Air, Argon, Helium, Nitrogen etc.) - BS No.3 inlet with G3/8" swivel outlet

CARBON DIOXIDE - BS No.8 inlet with G3/8" swivel outlet

OXYGEN - BS No.3 inlet with Heat Sink with G3/8" swivel outlet

FLAMMABLE GASES - (Hydrogen, Methane etc.) BS No.4 inlet with G3/8" swivel outlet
