Gold and Silver Series Braided Flexible Pump Connectors – Industry Standard

For Vibration Absorption and the Elimination of Piping Stress on Pumps

Gold Series Braided Pump ConnectorsKeflex™ Gold Series KSSPC braided flexible pump connectors are 100% American manufactured from stainless steel annular corrugated metal hose surrounded with a tight-weave heavy-duty wire braid of high tensile stainless steel.  This combination provides a highly flexible braided pump connector with a longer service life than lighter duty type connectors.  The Keflex™ Gold Series KSSPC, which has higher pressure and temperature capabilities, can absorb pump vibration and noise and reduce piping stress due to minor misalignment and pressure variations.  The reduction of stress on pumps and compressor housings can greatly reduce long-term operation and maintenance cost.

Standard end fittings for Keflex™ Gold Series KSSPC units are carbon steel male nipples for sizes 1/2” through 2”. Sizes 2” and larger have standard carbon steel plate flanges (5/8” minimum thickness) with ASA 150# bolt hole patterns.  Other fittings and lengths are available upon request.

These assemblies are intended for normal to severe pump vibrations.  Misalignment should not exceed 1/8” total.  Maximum operating temperature is 1000° F.  For higher pressures or temperatures, consult our engineering department.  For greater offset or lateral movements, use Keflex™ KFCS series flexible connectors.

The Keflex™ Gold Series KSSPC braided flexible pump connector is the highest-performing braided pump connector available in the industry.  Sold exclusively through our manufacturing representatives, we challenge any other standard braided pump connector to outperform it in noise or vibration absorption, pressure-carrying capacity and overall cycle life.

Keflex™ Gold Plus Series GPKSSPC braided flexible pump connectors are 100% American manufactured from T-316L stainless steel annular corrugated metal hose surrounded with a tight-weave heavy-duty wire braid of high tensile stainless steel.  This combination provides a corrosive-resistant flexible braided pump connector with a longer service life than lighter duty type connectors.

The Keflex™ Gold Plus Series GPKSSPC, which has greater corrosion-resistance, higher pressure and temperature capabilities, can absorb pump vibration and noise, accept thermal expansion and reduce piping stress due to minor misalignment and pressure variations. The reduction of stress on pumps and compressor housings can greatly reduce long-term operation and maintenance cost.

Standard end fittings for Keflex™ Gold Plus Series GPKSSPC units are stainless steel male nipples for sizes 1/2” through 2”.  Sizes 2” and larger have standard stainless steel plate flanges (5/8” minimum thickness) with ASA 150# bolt hole patterns.  Other fittings and lengths are available upon request.

Silver Series Braided Pump Connectors

Keflex™ Silver Series SKSSPC braided flexible pump connectors are constructed of stainless steel annular corrugated metal hose surrounded with a woven braid of high tensile stainless steel.  The Keflex™ Silver Series SKSSPC provides the same Keflex™ standard of quality at an economical price.

Standard end fittings for Keflex™ Silver Series SKSSPC units are carbon steel male nipples for sizes 1/2” through 2”.  Sizes 2” and larger have carbon steel plate flanges (5/8” minimum thickness) with ASA 150# bolt hole patterns.  These assemblies come with standard carbon steel end fittings in standard lengths only, and are intended for normal to severe pump vibrations.
