Steel manufacturing utilizes a variety of metal hose assemblies to accommodate a multitude of applications, including oxygen lance hose assemblies on BOF’s (basic oxygen furnaces), steam lines, gas lines, lubrication lines, cut-off torches, furnace door cooling hoses, tap hole drills, and spray chamber cooling lines.
Because of the high heat and corrosive gases generated in this industry, metal hose is an ideal fit for the stringent environment associated with steel manufacturing.
