Flex Connector - Hose Length for Degree of Bend

Written by Matt Milbury. Posted in Flex Connector Datasheets

Flex Connector - Hose Length for Degree of Bend

  • To determine the centerline bend radius required. Under the column headed "Centerline Bend Radius (in)", find the radius and read horizontally to be desired degree of bend (45°, 90°, 180°). The number in the column will be the minimum live hose length required to make the degree of bend along the centerline radius.
  • Add fitting dimension "A" (end connection) to each end of hose for overall length.
  • For calculating length of hose see angular deflection.
