A broad temperature range of -73°C to 260°C makes this hose material suitable for the majority of fluid and ambient temperature conditions found in industry.
With all types of hose, increased working temperatures require a reduction in maximum rated working or burst pressure. Whenever excessive flexing, vibration, thermal fluctuations or rapid pressure impulsing is in evidence, further caution should be exercised in reducing the maximum working pressure.
An extremely low coefficient of friction (0.05 to 0.20) provides a non-stick surface. Water absorption of PTFE is negligible, less than 0.01% by ASTM test, and it is FDA-approved for food and pharmaceutical use.
Additionally, PTFE will withstand flexing and vibration without failure from flex fatigue. PTFE is chemically inert. It will not break down or deteriorate in service, and it has an unlimited shelf life because properties do not change with age or exposure to weather. PTFE hose can be used in aerospace, automotive, chemical and industrial applications.
Pacific Hoseflex offers PTFE hose in a variety of configurations. PTFE hose innercore is offered in smooth bore, convoluted, smooth inner with a convoluted outer, conductive (Carbon black added) anti-static and non-conductive virgin. Type 304 or 316 stainless steel wire braid is the standard reinforcement with other specialty materials available.
