As a full metallic hose manufacturer, EHT are able to offer custom sizes of bellows to suit your individual requirements.
There is an old rule of thumb: Use a metallic hose when no other hose type will do.
The standard flexible tube starts its life as a coil of stainless steel strip, which is mechanically formed into a tube and then longitudinally butt-welded.
This rigid tube is then transferred to a corrugating machine where the corrugations are formed making the metallic hose flexible.
