Understanding PTFE Teflon Hoses
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an engineered fluoropolymer known for its exceptional chemical resistance and broad temperature range. PTFE hoses offer chemical resistance for a wide range of mediums and can withstand temperatures from -100°F to 500°F (-73°C to 260°C), making them suitable for various industrial applications.
Features and Characteristics
The PTFE/Teflon hoses have a non-stick surface that enables self-cleaning, minimizing the risk of contamination. At Indus, we offer the flexibility to crimp either MS or SS fittings to the PTFE hoses based on customer demands.However, PTFE Teflon hoses are less flexible compared to SS bellow hose assemblies. When overheated, PTFE hoses can release mildly toxic fumes, and their abrasion resistance coating is not the best, making them less abrasive resistant. Despite their limitations, PTFE hoses offer low friction, which minimizes pressure drops and prevents the buildup of unwanted deposits. They are also resistant to moisture to avoid hydrolysis, ensuring durability in various operating conditions. PTFE hoses find applications in automobile, steam transfer, refrigeration, pharmaceutical, medical, and chemical industries. The hose core is helically convoluted PTFE sintered tube, with reinforcement being a single layer of SS304 wire, ensuring structural integrity and performance.
