Flexible Pump Connectors

Flexible Pump Connectors

These connectors are typically made up of corrugated stainless steel hose with a stainless steel braid overlay, available in a range of lengths and connection sizes and types. They are most often used to reduce noise transfer between vibration sources and the rest of the system, and/or to overcome alignment issues.

Do you have questions about flexible pump connectors?

The braided connectors cannot compress or extend, and therefore do not compensate for most thermal expansions.  The most popular end fittings are carbon steel flanges and male thread ends on small diameters, but grooved ends and others are available. A floating flange on one end can help with installation on long connectors.  No control units or tie rods are needed with these connectors because the braiding prevents thrust loads from being transferred to nozzles and anchors.
