Furnace Door (Wire Braid)

The Furnace Door hose is used as a water cooling hose on open hearth steel mill furnaces. It is so light and flexible that only one person is required when replacing. It features reinforcement braids of high-tensile carbon steel wire with a heat resistant textile layer, providing an insulating layer against severe external heat. The flexible braid of stainless steel used for the cover prevents the build-up of metal spattering, and its cover resists the tendency for molten metal to cling to the hose.
