Hose features a Teflon® PFA core tube

September 15, 2008
Swagelok® Coreflex™ Series U-COR hose features a Teflon® PFA core tube for cleanliness, compatibility, and temperature capabilities in sanitary applications. The smooth bore hose is designed to maximize hoop strength, which helps reduce kinking, while keeping the hose amazingly flexible. Coupled with sanitary end connections, Coreflex hose was designed to help promote increased drainability and flow rates in biopharm applications. Swagelok Coreflex Series U-COR hose has a silicone cover for purity, personnel protection and insulation from internal system fluid temperature extremes, which makes it particularly useful for steam and other high-temperature applications. Features of the U-COR hose include a smooth-bore Fluoropolymer core, reinforced with a silicone layer, bonded to the core, a 300 series stainless steel overbraid, and a smooth, noncontaminating silicone cover for no braid fray. Swagelok Coreflex Series hose products offer advantages in flexibility, kink resistance, insulation, and product traceability marking.
