Silicone hoses

Likonsil™ elbows, straights, hump hoses, etc.

Features and benefits

Likonsil™ silicone hoses and elbows are made from the best quality silicone rubber with polyester, Nomex® or glassfibre reinforcements for optimal performance under extreme conditions. Our silicone hoses and elbows are supplied with a smooth, blue finish to secure superior fitting on piping. Upon request parts can be made with a more economic cloth wrapped finish also.Outer walls have a top layer of silicone. The superior properties and build guarantee a long, maintenance free life of Likonsil™ hoses.

Construction

Our standard range of hoses are made using 3, 4 or 5 plies of fabric depending on diameter, with wall thickness and construction depending on service conditions and flexibility required.

Materials and specification are carefully chosen, to provide a hose that offers easy fitting and maximum performance.

  • translucent, blue and red, other colors upon request
  • tape wrapped
  • smooth, convoluted or castellated outer walls
  • Likon or individual logo

Euro 6 standard engines

If high vacuum resistance is required, hoses can be constructed with either a wire helix built within the wall or, with internal, stainless steel springs.

Fuel Cell & Hybrid vehicles

Standard silicone may show traces of extractable materials that can harm fuel cell and hybrid systems. Likon offers silicone hoses lined with a clear silicone liner to minimize the risk of contamination to fluid or air carried by the hose. These hoses are suitable for a wide range applications where any contamination needs to be minimized.

Specials / FDA

Hose and elbows can be made to meet special requirements:

  • branched hoses
  • fluoro lined for improved oil resistance and gas tightness
  • convoluted hoses with stainless steel rings to resist kinking, collapsing under vacuum and dilation under pressure
  • internal reinforcing rings to prevent collapsing.
  • wire reinforced hose for improved bending without kinking
  • FDA approved compounds and construction
  • heat resistant cover for high temperature environments
  • etc…
