Cryogenic Hose Assemblies
Below are the cryogenic hose assemblies we can offer your company

Cryogenic Hoses

Aero-Flex Corporation offers a variety of cryogenic hoses for transferring liquid cryogens. This includes liquid nitrogen, liquid argon and liquid oxygen. These simple non-jacketed hose assemblies are a great option when you need to transfer cryogenic liquids or gasses from portable cryogenic storage cylinders. 

Cryogenic transfer hoses are designed to remain flexible at extremely low temperatures. They are constructed of a stainless steel corrugated core with 1 or 2 layers of stainless steel braid. The all stainless steel construction allows the cryogenic transfer hose to handle temperatures below -300°F which enables our hoses to easily transfer Liquid Oxygen, Liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Argon.

Liquid Oxygen (LOX)

Large diameter Oxygen cryogenic hoses are used to transfer liquid oxygen from a truck to a liquid cylinder. Small diameter hoses are used from the cylinder to be used in laboratory settings, home care oxygen, medical facilities and even industrial uses like petrochemical applications.

What is Armor Guard And Do I Need It On My Hose?

Armor guard for cryogenic transfer hoses is typically made out of stainless steel. Its constructed out of a stripwound heavy duty metal casing which is applied over the outside of the hose to protect it against severe handling abuse, crushing or overbending. Armor guard is also used to prevent punctures through the braid and into the hose core decreasing the chance for a leak.  Please ask us about adding armor guard to your cryogenic transfer hose assembly.
