Cryogenics applications spread across industries, from pharmaceutical manufacturing to gas transfer, including liquid argon, liquid nitrogen, liquid oxygen, and liquid natural gas (LNG) transfer.
Why use metal hose for these applications? Simple answer: tremendous low temperature performance. Corrugated metal hose assemblies can be manufactured to withstand temperatures as low as -325ºF.
Ship-to-shore LNG transfer is one area where customers have experienced increased success with metal hose compared to other composite hose materials.
Applications that use metal hose and metal expansion joints:
- Liquid Gas Transfer – Annuflex, Masterflex
- Freeze Drying – Annuflex
