Fluoropolymer header

We provide you with a full line of Fluoropolymer hose and engineered assemblies to meet your most challenging chemical transfer application requirements. A wide range of innercore products that include smooth bore, anti-static, and heavy wall models. You can receive custom manufactured fluoropolymer hose to your specifications, delivered worldwide. We control the full manufacturing process, which gives us the ability to guarantee the highest quality.

We offer engineered solutions that address flexure, vibration, thermal or pressure related problems as well as applications involving the transfer of liquids or gases. Our fluoropolymer hose products can be found in the aerospace, compressed gas, automotive, hydraulic and food industries. The gas hoses have a core of PTFE, PFA or ETFE, with one or more layers of stainless steel braid over the tube. We also supply hoses with Kevlar under the stainless steel braid.

Products:

Dense-Pac High Pressure Hose

High pressure smooth bore anti-static PTFE hose with Dense-Pac braid reinforcement supports high pressure operation in a lightweight flexible construction. Can be used in higher temperature service conditions such as high temperature hydraulics (phosphate-ester based) in steel mills, plastics reaction injection molding (RIM), heated hose dispensing hot-melts and high pressure gas and oxygen transfer. Available sintered for gas, non-sintered for liquids, in single or double braid.

dense hose
Rubber Covered FEP Hose

Smooth bore heavy wall FDA compliant FEP innercore reinforced with multiple plies of bonded EPDM with fabric braid and wire helix support for full vacuum resistance. A rugged and reliable construction that is used as a general purpose transfer hose in chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food processing applications. Previously known as Rubber Covered Jack-Chem.

Heavy Duty Easy Bend Open Pitch Flared Convoluted PTFE Hose

Convoluted open pitch heavy wall PTFE hose with layers of type 304SS wire over-braid construction. Heavy wall PTFE innercore is FDA compliant and chemically inert to a wide range of acids, caustics and proprietary chemical formulations. Used in many chemical plants world-wide for chemical resistance and long service life. Flared PTFE ends provide a continuous flow path of PTFE so transfer material is only in contact with PTFE.

convoluted hose
MTLC PTFE Hose

Corrugated metal hose lined with smooth bore PTFE with flared at both ends. A very heavy duty construction that has two distinct layers, a corrugated metal hose is manufactured first and a very heavy wall PTFE liner is inserted through the metal hose and flared at each end. Used exclusively in the chemical processing industry in fixed non-flexing service conditions.

MTLC hose
Easy Bend Open Pitch Convoluted PTFE Hose

Convoluted open pitch PTFE hose with layers of type 304SS wire over-braid construction. Convoluted natural and anti-static PTFE cores for various transfer conditions. Easy Bend is a highly flexible option for installation where smooth bore hose is easily kinked or difficult to install. A wide variety of problem solving in applications such as air compressors, gas turbines, transportation, tank truck, pulp and paper, chemical processing, plastic and rubber curing. Also available in tape wrap version.

convoluted hose
Fluoropolymer Gas Hoses

Extremely chemical resistant fluoropolymer gas hoses that can withstand close to all known gases. Superior life for compressed gas applications. Temperature range: -60°C to +260°C (-76°F to +500°F). We manufacture assembled fluoropolymer hoses for the gas industry and for other companies which provide gas equipment world wide. Extremely chemical resistant with superior flex life and minimal diffusion. We have many designs approved according to ISO 14113 for Oxygen, acetylene and many other gases. The raw material grades used for the inner tubing are compliant to FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 and/or USP Class VI, EU 10/2011 or WRAS.
