Silicone Hoses at FCL
Silicone hoses are designed to connect metal pipe work and components in systems using water and ethylene glycol based coolants. Our silicone hoses are manufactured from only the highest quality materials and reinforcement fabrics, our silicone hoses are designed to operate at temperatures from – 50°C up to +180°C and at operating pressures of 2.5 – 4 bar.
Silicone hoses are specifically designed for use in coolant systems on trucks, buses, passenger cars, generators, railway engines and many other vehicle and industrial applications where connections are required between rigid or flexible metal pipes. They are ideal for joining pipes of similar or differing diameters – reducers. Available in standard sizes from 6mm to 152mm diameter, with diameters greater than 152mm made to specific customer requirements.
