Pacific Hoseflex 's encapsulated PTFE hoses are constructed from a helically convoluted PTFE (polytetrafluorethylene) inner tube, medium wall, with an outer cover of AISI 304 high tensile stainless steel braid.
Virtually resistant to all chemicals except molten alkali metals or halogens at elevated temperatures, they are non-stick and easy to clean, and can be used in temperatures ranging from -70ºC to +260ºC.
Pacific Hoseflex's encapsulated PTFE hoses also feature excellent mechanical resistance for vibrations and flexing, and are chemically inert and nonageing, with high UV resistant properties.
Their low co-efficiency of friction ensures low pressure drops.
Encapsulated PTFE hoses are recommended for use on all tafted flange assemblies when pressure or vacuum are applied.
