Bridge clamps provide a tight seal on right-hand (standard) spiral wire flex hose. Band and housing are Type 301 stainless steel. Band is 1/2" wide and 0.025" thick. Screw is Type 305 stainless. Bridge Clamps
Note: To determine the spiral direction of your hose, look at the end of the hose. If the spiral goes away from you in a clockwise direction, then the hose has a right-hand spiral.
  Flexible Steel Hose  

Flexible steel hose is strip-wound interlocked and
made from hot-dipped galvanized carbon steel. There
are two different gauge thicknesses to choose from,
depending on the severity of service. It can be twisted
without unraveling. Steel flex is rated to 788° F. Spiral
Manufacturing suggests that operating temperature
not exceed 400° F. It is sold fully extended and may be
less than specified length if compressed.

Galvanized steel all metal suction and blower hose for
dust and fume collection. An excellent choice for wood
shop molders.

From fully collapsed, tubing can be extended 2.5’’ per foot under a tension load of 25-lbs. minimum to 45-lbs. maximum. Install in systems in semicompressed condition, midway between fully extended and fully compressed.
