PTFE Hose is made of Polytetrafluoroethylene – an engineered fluoropolymer. Polytetrafluoroethylene is a different name for a chemical compound also known as Teflon. Due to the excellent chemical resistance properties, it is widely used in high-temperature hydraulics, electrical insulation, chemical transfer lines, gas sampling applications.
Benefits Of Using PTFE Hose Compared To a Traditional Rubber-Lined Hose Include:
excellent chemical compatibility with the most acids, alcohols, detergents, and solvents. It is the most versatile plastic hose in terms of chemical resistance available on the market now
lowest coefficient of friction of any known plastic hose. Its non-stick surface properties decrease the chances of pressure drops and deposit buildup
broad temperature range of -100°F to 500°F (-73°C to 260°C)
high operating pressure up to 6,160 psi
durability. This hose chemically inert meaning that it will not break down while in use or deteriorate in storage. It has an unlimited shelf life and its properties do not change with time.
Always ensure that the fittings and PTFE Hose are compatible with each other and made by the same manufacturer for a good seal.
