The design eliminates potential entrapment areas, as the helical rounded profile of the hose and non stick properties of the PTFE promotes a self cleaning effect.
Construction of Pacific Hoseflex Encapsulated PTFE Hose:
Smooth or convoluted PTFE liner passes through the fitting and flares over the face, creating a mating surface that can then be installed without a gasket. Since the flow path is completely smooth, there can't be any build-up between inner core and fitting.
Stainless Steel outer wire braid, helically wound tube (translucent in appearance). The design eliminates potential entrapment areas, as the helical rounded profile of the hose and non stick properties of the PTFE promotes a self cleaning effect. All fittings and assemblies are designed for maximum reliability and safety.
Properties of Pacific Hoseflex Encapsulated PTFE Hose:
The hose is virtually resistant to all chemicals, except molten alkali metals or halogens at elevated temperatures. It is non-stick and easy to clean with a temperature range of -70º C to +260º C. The mechanical resistance for vibrations and flexing is excellent. The product is chemically inert, non ageing and has an extremely high UV resistance. The low co-efficiency of friction ensures low pressure drop. It is non-flammable and FDA approved for food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications.
Typical Applications of Pacific Hoseflex Encapsulated PTFE Hose:
Encapsulated PTFE is recommended on all tafted flange assemblies when pressure or vacuum are applied. Recommend use for: chemical transfers, food and oil handling, and various processing applications, from pure water to hazardous waste food.
