Silicone Turbo-charger Hoses
Manufactured from only the highest quality silicones and reinforcement fabrics, our silicone hoses are designed to operate at temperatures from -50°C up to +230°C and at operating pressures up to 6 bar. Bespoke hoses can be manufactured to withstand significantly higher pressures where required.
Our silicone hoses offer superior reliability even when operating under the extreme conditions found on modern Euro 6 engines, our air intake hoses can be manufactured to withstand the low, negative pressures experienced on many modern engine systems, while maintaining good flexibility. Our Turbo-charger and intake hoses are used by many OE vehicle manufacturers in Euro 5 and Euro 6 applications.
Our multi-directional test rig allows us to prove our Turbo-charger (CAC) and intake hoses, under severe conditions at up to 230°C.
Megaflex Turbo-charger and Inter-cooler hoses, offer the highest degree of reliability under extreme under bonnet applications.
Manufactured from only the highest quality silicone and UK sourced fabrics, hoses are offered from the design stage to your complete solution for turbo and inter-cooler applications. Our constructions are thoroughly tested and proven at temperatures up to 230?C on our multi-directional test rig, giving our customers confidence in the performance and reliability of our CAC hoses.
Fuel and Oil Resistance
Where fuel or oil mist is present, normal silicone material will absorb and degrade rapidly during service. We offer superior, fluoro-silicone lined hoses, to resist fuel, oil and diesel. Using the highest quality fluorosilicone material as a liner, our unique manufacturing process enables us to achieve an inter ply bond strength of almost double that found when tested against several competitor hoses. We use only 100% fluorosilicone however, we remain competitive due to our efficient manufacturing process, where many competitors use diluted fluorosilicone material in order to reduce cost.

Polyester For Cold-side hoses or, hoses where service temperature does not exceed 180?C.
Weight: 190gsm +/ - 17gsm
Burst pressure: 16Bar (232 psi)
Tensile strength: 75-80 Kgf
Temperature range: -50?C up to 180?C
Woven or Knitted Meta-aramid For Hot-side hoses or where service temperatures reach 230?C.
Temperature range: -50°C up to 230°C.
Woven meta-aramid gives higher stiffness and burst pressure when required. Specialist manufacturing techniques allow us to impart higher strength with good flexibility in both radial and axial directions when building convoluted turbo-charger hoses.
Produced in a variety of complex shapes, with or without convolutions for added flexibility. We manufacture intake hoses with multi outlets. Air sensors can be built into the hose wall. Wire reinforced hoses for high vacuum resistance are also produced.
We manufacture silicone hoses to the highest standard, designed to operate under the most extreme conditions found anywhere in todays modern engines. Our silicone hoses are manufactured using high quality silicone from world-leading suppliers. The woven and knitted meta-aramid fabric reinforcement used, is of the highest quality, supplied by leading UK manufacturers.
Our standard range of hoses are made using 3, 4 or 5 plies of fabric depending on diameter, with wall thickness and construction dependent on service conditions and flexibility required. Our materials and specification are carefully chosen, to provide a hose which offers easy fitting combined with maximum performance.
Where a high vacuum resistance is required, for example on off highway or most modern Euro 6 standard engines, hoses can be constructed with either a wire helix built within the wall or, with internal, stainless steel springs.
Production and Technical Options
We offer part marking including specific customer logo, part numbers and traceability options.
High temperature reflective sleeving, providing protection in specific vulnerable areas for example, close to turbo or exhaust systems.
Anti-abrasion sleeving. This can provide protection where a hose is likely to come in to contact with moving or, vibrating components.
Hose Clamps: We recommend and can provide a range of clips, ideal for all hose clamping solutions. See our Fittings Section for more information.
Custom Designed and Bespoke Hoses
We have in-house tool manufacturing capability. In addition, we have the support of local and other tool manufacturers. This allows us to offer a wide range of product options, from simple elbow hoses to complex shapes, bellows and large intake hoses. Megaflex also offer a design service for non-standard applications, providing full technical and 3D drawings for approval and future reference.
