High Purity Hose Assemblies Eliminate Entrapment

July 12, 2010
The High Purity Hose Assemblies are manufactured from a high purity, seamless PFA tube and offering a smooth surface to eliminate entrapment of matter as it travels through the hose. The chemically inert fluoropolymer tubing offers increased environmental stress crack resistance in process lines which carry fluorine based fluids, such as heat transfer fluids, according to the manufacturer. Other features include increased flex life and flexibility, better ozone resistance and reduced HCI permeation. The High Purity Hoses can withstand extreme temperatures (325 degree F) and are available in unbraided or braided assemblies. Reinforced assemblies can be supplied with Stainless Steel, Kevlar, or Polypropylene braid. The company also offers a full line of standard fittings. Sizes range from 3/8- to 1-1/2-inch I.D.
