Clessinox 1.2m 70kW Stainless Steel Outlet Hose 15mm Compression
Clessinox Stainless Steel metallic flexible hose assemblies are BS6891:2015 compliant and rodent resistant, certified 1mb pressure loss per mtr @ 70kW. Suitable for use with Single cylinder installations and 2-cylinder Changeover kits.
Clessinox is a stainless steel convoluted walled hose covered with a protective UV stabilised PVC outer sleeve, providing a durable, flexible solution in gas installations and an alternative to rubber and rubber armoured hose. Specifically designed for use with LPG and Natural Gas in accordance to BS 6891:2015, BS 5482 and Liquid Gas UK COP.
- LPG Installation standard BS6891:2015 – The specification for installation and maintenance of low pressure pipework requires the outlet hose to be armour protected from rodent attack.
- Supplied in 2 diameters DN12 to satisfy installations up to 35kW. DN16 to satisfy installation up to 70kW. Both sizes of hose are declared with a 1mb pressure loss per metre.
- Rubber hose without armoured protection no longer meets the requirements of BS6891:2015.
Clessinox is marked with the expected pressure drop and aids the installer to ensure the installation meets the 2mb pipework maximum permissible pressure drop requirements of BS6891. i.e. a 1.2m hose using Clessinox DN16 at 70kw/metre/1mb will have a Pd of 1.2mb. Using the same hose at a reduced 50kW, pressure drop is calculated as 1.2 x (50/70) = 0.85mb.
Service life – Normally 10 years depending on installation and use conditions. Visit the Clesse website for further installation recommendations – all hoses should be checked regularly and replaced if damaged or leaking.
