For over six decades, PTFE or Polytetrafluoroethylene has been used as a unique material because of its many rare properties leading it to be used in many industries in modern times.
PTFE properties make it perfect for hoses of all sizes, shapes, and purposes. Its resistance and self-cleaning properties make it ideal to use in many industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and cosmetics. PTFE hose maintains strong resistance to temperature making its purchase of flexible hose for hot oil, adhesives, paints, acids, steams and solvents, etc.
The PTFE smooth bore Teflon hoses are effective in temperatures -73 degrees Celsius to 260 degrees Celsius. It is used to transfer chemicals known as aggressive chemicals such as Acetyl Chloride, Oleum, weak acids, Chlorine, Ammonium Nitrate, and Molten Sulphur.
The flexible hose quality makes it versatile and has many applications where many other materials fail.
PTFE Flexible hoses Properties:
- They are reliable, durable, and strong
- Woven and reinforced with stainless steel making it stronger
- Super-efficient under high pressure
- Resistant to high temperature and low temperature
- Works excellently in hostile conditions like extreme weather conditions.
- It does not react with most of the chemicals available on the market
- Because of its properties, it is used in different manufacturing processes
- Molten Alkali metals and halogenated metals affect the PTFE hose
- It doesn’t transfer its properties to any gases or liquids.
Benefits of PTFE hoses:
Significant benefits of using PFTE hoses are in:
PTFE hoses are used in fire extinguisher systems:
Perfect usage of PFTE hoses is in fire safety because of their excellent shock absorption and security against fire as it is impertinent to high temperatures.
PTFE flexible hose pipes are super flexible:
Braided reinforcement allows the hose to be used in several industrial processes involving vibration and movement. At the same time, it maintains its durability and performance.
The hose can easily bend. PTFE hoses are convoluted and smooth bore depending on size and construction and come with and without outer cover.
PTFE hoses properties make it best for cleanliness:
It’s non-stick property is best for the pharmaceutical and food industry. They are resistant to chemical attacks from the chemical that passes through them.
Several PTFE hoses are made that are used for a range of purposes.
There are two versions of PFTE hoses available:
- Smooth Bore: commonly used for flexibility, its chemical compatibility, non-metallic and nonconductive.
The most demanding PTFE hoses are used for reloading aggressive chemicals in pharmaceuticals. And the most demanding application of PTFE hoses is food production and relative industries. This property enables these PFTE hoses to applications great for the food industry and FDA approved. It doesn’t transfer its properties to gases or liquids, so it doesn’t add odor.
Its internal layer is seamless and made from extruded premium grade of PTFE which ensures maximum flexibility, and at the same time, it has minimal porosity. Further, it is highly resistant to vibration.
The PTFE hose has more advantages than pipes and tubing but has limitations. You could bend and loop it. Hose offers to bend without the need for tube benders and additional fittings, and its flexibility offers easy installation.
It is connecting points that may experience extra pressure, but unique technology can assist in giving it more excellent resistance and avoiding kinking or collapsing when being bent. It becomes easy to install and route in tight situations.
Never compromise on strength to gain flexibility, as it means better resistance than collapsing in tight bends. Electrostatic is effectively prevented.
Highly trained advisors will be able to understand your operation and know specific areas and provide proper installation. There are no more wasted products, safety incidents, or business risks as proactively managing a hose system with PTFE hoses can be cost-effective and best for security purposes.
