PFA hose is highly flexible, with a smooth-bore PFA core that complies with FDA regulation 21CFR Part 177.1550, USP 87, 88 Class VI, and 3-A. An optional carbon black-filled PFA core is available for applications that require static dissipation.
A smooth inner wall provides flow control and enhanced drainability for precision and cleanliness. The silicone cover washes down easily to prevent bacterial buildup, protects stainless steel braiding, protects against burns, and helps maintain process temperatures.
The U series hose has a PFA core with a 302 stainless steel braid reinforcement that is commonly used where high flexibility, chemical compatibility, and a smooth exterior cover are desired. Hose layers are encapsulated together without adhesives or cements with a patent-pending process, providing high flexibility and outstanding kink resistance.
Custom hose lengths and end connections are available with other options including hose covers and hose tags.
