Hoses

HKS offers a wide range of hoses from a variety of materials and connection parts. Hoses are primarily used to connect stationary and movable units or to compensate for parallel pipe misalignments.

HKS hoses are used e.g. for bottling, refuelling, the supply of energy carriers (steam, hot water), for compressed air, for the transmission of combustibles (fuel oil, gas) and as vibration dampers for chillers and air conditioning plant.

Our expansion joints and hoses are carefully planned out by the skilled and dedicated contact persons in our sales department to meet our customers' requirements.

HKS manufactures expansion joints and hoses for a wide range of applications. The fabrication ranges from standardised hoses produced on an industrial scale to those tailor-made to meet individual customers' needs.

Depending on the application, a hose can be made of various materials such as steel, stainless steel, nickel-based alloys, rubber, fabric, PTFE or Teflon. The design is primarily determined by the medium to be conveyed, the pressure, temperature, size and the direction of the expansion needing to be absorbed.
