Victaulic's Series AH2-CC Braided Hose provides 100% kink resistance and a strong bend radius (2-in. cULus listing), which allows it to thrive in high-pressure applications. The corrugation and braided technology reduce the effort required to bend the hose, allowing for an easier bend, simpler installation, and better shape retention. In previous models, pipefitters had to tape and dope the threads of the branch line nipple and thread it into the branch line outlet, using a pipe wrench to tighten the connection. The AH2-CC provides a pipefitter-friendly option by eliminating the need to use a pipe wrench on the branch line side, reducing installation time and potential for pipefitter injuries.
