Specifications for Single Braid Hose and Hose Properties
Specifications and Size Range
For Single Stainless Steel wire braid hose, for Standard Grade and AS Grade.
The Smoothbore Range meet or exceeds SAE 100R14 standard.
Standard Wall, Single Braid (SW, SB)
Heavy Wall, Single Braid (HW, SB)
Medium Wall, Single Braid (MW, SB) - Also referred to as Hyperline SB
*For Anti-Static Grade, add 10 to the 3-digit part number (e.g. 70-100- becomes 70-110-) For High Pressure Gas Grade, add 20 to the 3-digit part number (e.g. 70-100- becomes 70-120-)
NOTE: Many of the sizes of hose and fittings listed above are available as ex-stock items and are priced accordingly. However, some of the less popular items are not always in stock, and may therefore incur a minimum order charge or set-up charge for smaller quantities. STI Flow will advise when the inquiry is made.
Temperature & Pressure
Temperature affects the Maximum Working Pressure (MWP) as listed above, so for temperatures above 130C reduce the MWP by 0.75% for each 1C above 130C. Example: at 180C, reduce the MWP by (180 - 130) x 0.75 = 37.5%.
Pressure Ratings above 100 Bar (1500 psi) only apply for the transfer of non-penetrating fluids. If gases or penetrating fluids are used at higher pressures, HPG grade hose is required.
Maximum Working Pressures (MWP) listed are calculated on the basis of a 3:1 safety factor relative to the burst pressure, so Burst Pressure = 3 x MWP. If MWP is required based on a 4:1 safety factor, multiply the listed value by 0.75.
