The fundamental issue with smooth bore PTFE hose is that as its inner diameter increases, the flexibility reduces. Apart from 1/4" Smooth bore PTFE hose,for particular smaller lengths the flexibility for larger sizes is relatively much less. So for larger diameters,the plain PTFE hose behaves as a rigid pipe or provides minimum flexibility. In order to increase the flexibility, Convoluted PTFE hoses are preferred.
Temperature Range: -65° to 450° F
Material: PTFE with 304 Stainless Steel Braid, SS316 is available
Both fittings flared or BSPP/BSPT/NPT/JIC etc
This hose is PTFE with a stainless steel braid for more chemical resistance and better strength than other chemical hose. Stainless steel fittings have very good corrosion resistance.
It has excellent shelf life, practically unlimited. Used more commonly for sanitary applications. Unlike other non metal hose, PTFE Hose will not impart taste.It has excellent chemical resistance, non contamination properties and resists deterioration. Provides good flexing for longer lengths of the hose, and is used for applications which require medium pressure. Silicon sleeve or Rubber hose covering can be used externally for protection against external harsh environments.
