Our articulated bellow hoses are specially designed for areas where the hose acts as a cushion to absorb lateral movement, compression and expansion as well as vibration. Hoses without this construction would otherwise easily split under movement.
Compared to our black Nomex Bellow Hose this flexible hose offers much more movement. The trade off is a little less pressure handling due to its thinner wall thickness of 4mm and slightly softer grade silicone of 60°ShA. This Articulated bellow would not be so flexible with a thicker wall and harder silicone rubber and as such is recommended for use where pressure is not high.
The brown coloured silicone offers better heat stability compared to black or coloured silicone. The hose also features 3 more pronounced humps for better articulation and 4 Stainless Steel Rings to prevent the hose from ballooning.
These hoses are highly recommended to connect your charge cooler / Intercooler etc to pipework, and are 200mm long (6″), Available in a number of popular sizes, and also with options of a reducing diameter one end to the other.
