New High Pressure PTFE Hoses Handle Up to 5,500 PSI

March 3, 2011

The High Pressure PTFE Hose Assemblies can handle high working pressures (up to 5,500 psi) while maintaining peak flow rates. The High PSI assemblies are manufactured with a heavy wall of PTFE that has excellent compatibility with a variety of media. The PTFE tube has a static dissipating liner that provides a path of continuity to the end fittings for applications where flow induced electrostatic charges could occur potentially damaging the hose assembly. The resilient PTFE tube is reinforced with braided SS 304 wire. Braiding, as opposed to spiraling, allows for better flexibility and a tighter bend radius in the finished hose while maintaining high continuous working pressures. The stainless steel wire braid also minimizes volumetric expansion in hydraulic service. The hoses are available in sizes ranging from ¼- to 1-inch ID and handle temperature ranges between –65 to 400 degrees F. Assemblies are supplied in lengths up to 25 feet with a carbon or stainless steel female JIC fitting on each end.
