Southampton, PA, United States, 2007/11/15 - Stainless-steel-overbraided PTFE fluoropolymer hose from AdvantaPure is now available with white or conductive black cores in either smooth or convoluted style. Silicone jacketing for heat protection and an easy-to-wipe-clean surface is also offered.
Called APFOS, the hose offers the purity of PTFE fluoropolymer with the durability and enhanced pressure carrying capabilities of stainless steel. APFOS is used for applications in the chemical, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and other high-purity industries.
APFOS is constructed of a virgin PTFE core overbraided with series 300 stainless steel wire. The core provides non-restrictive flow and an inert surface to transport critical fluids. APFOS handles temperatures ranging from -65°F to 450°F; -54°C to 232°C. The steel reinforcement permits higher pressure uses, improves flexibility, reduces the possibility of kinking, and protects the core.
Stock offerings consist of white or conductive black PTFE fluoropolymer cores in smooth or convoluted styles. Smooth core hose provides maximum flow, while convoluted offers enhanced flexibility. Silicone jacketed APFOS (APFOSJ) is available in white core in either smooth or convoluted core (conductive black is available through custom order). The silicone offers a degree of heat protection, making the hose easier to handle in higher temperature applications. It also provides a smooth exterior to eliminate particle entrapment and allows the surface to be wiped cleaned. In addition, the silicone jacket presents a suitable surface for AdvantaLabel®, AdvantaPure’s silicone label attachment system.
APFOS sizes range from 1/4” through 4” nominal I.D., depending on style. Custom options include hose assemblies with crimped-on or flare-through ends, non-stock sizes, special packaging, and identification solutions. Rubber-covered FEP fluoropolymer hose is stocked as well.
