Standard braided corrugated metal hose, also known as flexible metal hose, consists of three major components: a corrugated inner core hose, a outer braid cover, and a braid sleeve (ferrule). These components are put together and are welded at each end of the length by using a cap weld process known as the seal pass. End fittings are then selected and welded to the seal pass ends in order to complete the final hose assembly.
