Stripwound hoses („Peschel hoses”) are formed from profiled, metal strips which are spirally wound to overlap each other. Usually, the strips are in zinc-plated carbon steel or stainless steel. The profile of the strips allows the edges to interlock and ensures excellent flexibility of the hose. Various types of sealing can also be used. The hoses are generally designed for conveying vapours and bulk materials, for very low pressure, for vacuum or as protective covers.
