The Excel Industries comprehensive range of Flexible Plumbing Connectors designed for use throughout the plumbing, heating and air conditioning industries. They provide installation solutions to many pipework problems associated with tight or limited space. They are also ideal where easy access is required to move and service plant or equipment which can be maintained without the need to disconnect plumbing fittings.
They are suitable for connecting numerous different appliances including cylinders, tanks, pumps, showers, taps, water heaters, boilers, air conditioning units and vending machines to name but a few. They are also extremely useful for running long lengths of pipe incorporating many different changes in direction.
Whilst the hoses are suitable for potable water, they can also be used to connect devices using a range of liquid chemicals, details of which can be seen in the technical specifications on the member web-page. Hoses with full WRC approval are also available; please specify at time of ordering.
The hose core is made from non-toxic EPDM rubber, a material known and proven world wide for its ability to withstand extreme wear and temperature conditions. The hose is full bore and so permits the full flow of water through the assembly.
The metal outer sheath is made from non-corrosive type 304 bright stainless steel braid which is firmly secured at each end of the hose length in a clamped collar forming part of the appropriate termination. This mechanically armoured casing enables the hose to be safely applied in almost any environment and provides for the possibility of service with high temperature and pressure.
Metal termination connections are manufactured from brass and are chrome plated (except for push-fit terminations). They are secured to the ends of the hose with a mechanical clamping process which enables the assembled hose to accommodate an internal pressure of up to 10 bar.
