1 Scope

1.1 These requirements cover flexible metallic hose supplied with fittings on each end that facilitate connection without twisting the hose. They have a corrugated metal core or a nonmetallic inner core which are covered with a stainless steel braid. They have a nominal inside diameter of not more than 4 in (101 mm) intended for use in piping systems carrying compressed gases, such as anhydrous ammonia, and combustible fuel gases such as natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, propane, and butane, at pressures not exceeding 500 psig (3.45 MPa) and temperatures not greater than 450 °F (232 °C) or lower than -40 °F (-40 °C).

1.2 Flexible metallic hose is intended for aboveground applications and for underground applications not involving contact with soil.

1.3 Flexible metallic hose is not considered a substitute for standard pipe or tubing and its use should be confined to applications where flexible connections cannot be avoided.

1.4 Flexible metallic hose is not intended to be subjected to excessive torsion, tension, compression, or bending stresses and shall be protected against physical damage and ignition sources.

1.5 This standard does not apply to hose connectors used in natural gas processing plants, refineries, petrochemical plants, marine terminals, or gas-transmission and distribution-piping systems.

1.6 These products have not been evaluated for use after fires, natural disasters such as earthquakes, or excessive physical damage beyond the expected assembly, installation and uses as identified in these requirements.

1.7 These products are intended to be periodically inspected and maintained for continued service, or taken out of service if necessary by qualified persons in accordance with industry recommended practices and/or the manufacturer's instructions.

1.8 Products covered by these requirements are intended to be installed and used in systems in accordance with the applicable Codes and Regulations as determined by the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), such as, but not limited to:

  1. a) In the United States:
    1. 1) National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1;
    2. 2) Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code, NFPA 58; and
    3. 3) Applicable Federal and State regulations for gas piping.
  2. b) In Canada:
    1. 1) National Fire Code of Canada;
    2. 2) Installation Code for Oil Burning Equipment, CSA B139;
    3. 3) The Environmental Codes of Practice for Aboveground and Underground Storage Tank Systems containing Petroleum and Allied Products;
    4. 4) Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1; and
    5. 5) Propane Installation Code, CAN/CGA-B149.2.

1.9 This standard does not cover the following:

  1. a) Gas appliance hose connectors for handling fuel gases at 5 psig (34.5 kPa) or less, which is covered by Connectors for Gas Appliances, CSA 6.10/ANSI Z21.24;
  2. b) Portable outdoor cooking appliance fuel hose, which is covered by Gas Hose Connectors for Portable Outdoor Gas-Fired Appliances, CSA 8.4/ANSI Z21.54;
  3. c) LP-Gas and natural gas delivery hose or fuel supply systems, which is covered by the Standard for Pigtails and Flexible Hose Connectors for LP-Gas, UL 569 and the Standard for LP-Gas Hose, UL 21 or the Standard for Elastomeric composite hose and hose couplings for conducting propane and natural gas, CSA 8.1, and the Standard for Thermoplastic hose and hose couplings for conducting propane and natural gas, CSA 8.3;
  4. d) Underground piping products for liquid fuels, which is covered by the Outline of Investigation for Metallic Underground Fuel Pipe, UL 971A, or the Standard for Metallic and Nonmetallic Underground Piping for Flammable and Combustible Liquids, CAN/ULC-S679;
  5. e) Flexible connector piping for liquid fuels, which is covered by the Standard for Flexible Connector Piping for Fuels, UL 2039, or the Standard for Flexible Connector Piping for Fuels, CAN/ULC-S633;
  6. f) Motor fuel dispensing hose, which is covered by the Standard for Hose and Hose Assemblies for Dispensing Flammable and Combustible Liquids, ANSI/CAN/UL 330.
