Steel Wire Armouring

Hydrostatic Layer for High Pressure Hoses

Steel Wire Armourer

This flexible wire armour layer is used as a hydrostatic resistance layer in the manufacture of high pressure hose for offshore applications. It is suitable for round or square wire with a wide range of physical properties, including high-tensile spring materials, where tight tolerances for diameter and pitch are a requirement. This infinite length capability provides an economic alternative for this growing market segment.
