PTFE Hoses (Polytetrafluoroethylene hoses) are used in a huge range of applications thanks to their unique chemical and physical construction. The most common type of PTFE hose is smoothbore hose, which takes advantage of the chemical properties of polytetrafluoroethylene to maximise effectiveness and minimise friction within the hose tubing itself.
Since PTFE is commonly used in non-slip pan coverings and other friction-reducing applications, its use in smooth-bore hoses makes perfect sense – with greatly reduced possibility of anything sticking to the inside of the tube, the hose is essentially self-cleaning, and has much improved efficiency in transporting the fluids inside at any pressure, encouraging it to simply slide along. When paired with great construction and the commitment to excellence offered by Proflex Hose, it really is an excellent boost to the business facilities of any venture! But why would you choose it?
Unique Design Advantages
Made with a single seamless piece of PTFE tubing, the PTFE smooth bore hosing from Proflex Hose is tested extensively to make sure that it is up to the exacting requirements demanded by our customer’s businesses – and the PTFE hosing we specialise in can be customised to your needs in a huge variety of ways, with braided stainless steel sheathing and other upgrades possible thanks to the design of our hose.
The stainless steel sheathing available for our hosing increases the pressure capabilities of the hose dramatically, and also boosts the hose’s durability, protecting it against physical damage, abuse and day-to-day wear and tear with industry-leading protection. In addition to the physical durability and strength of the stainless steel braiding, the steel itself is extremely resistant to corrosion and rusting, making it suitable for use in caustic environments, environments where it is likely to get wet, and other spots including marine environments and industry.
The smooth bore PTFE hose available from Proflex Hose is available in a range of sizes and is made from one single, seamless piece of extruded PTFE tubing, made with only the best high-quality polytetrafluoroethylene to ensure great quality. Equipped with secure moorings to connect the hose to its assembly, this PTFE smooth bore hose can be quickly attached and detached where necessary, and will be secure and reliable while there.
The seamlessness of the hose’s construction helps to maintain good pressure capabilities and strengthens the overall build, but it is more than just that – it’s also a great way to cut down on interior friction and blockage chance. The PTFE construction material helps there too – with one of the lowest known coefficients of friction, the hose is essentially self-cleaning, with the action of the fluid itself providing enough power to remove any plaques of build-ups before they can get a hold.
Versatile Business Applications
A polytetrafluoroethylene hose is suitable for use in a huge variety of business, retail and industrial applications. From carrying foodstuffs and ingredients in a food processing area to carrying pumped hydrocarbons or steam, paints, chemicals and other materials – even refrigerants and fuels can be pumped through these phenomenally versatile hoses, so whatever your business’ needs, you can rely on the PTFE smoothbore hoses from Proflex Hose to help meet those needs.
Huge Range of Available Sizes
No matter the size of hose you need, Proflex Hose has the solution for you. We work with a wide range of industries and companies to provide bespoke hose solutions to suit their needs, including in small assemblies and large-scale industrial processing. Where needed or desired, the hose can be clad in a stainless steel braiding, providing boosting resistance to damage and greatly increased pressure capabilities. Carefully woven so as not to restrict the flexibility and movement of the hose, this braiding is an excellent investment in situations which call for its use.
The different sizes of PTFE hose are all available with a range of hydraulic fittings, to connect them to hydraulic systems of varying sizes, but if your business requires a larger hydraulic fitting, please note that this will likely necessitate a larger-diameter hose, to fit it.
Excellent Hose Qualities
With all of these components in place, it’s no surprise that PTFE hoses are among the highest performance hoses available for business use on the market. Resistant to temperature and pressure, with optional braiding to boost this resistance even further, these self-cleaning, chemically-resistant hoses are suitable for the smooth, reliable transport of a phenomenal range of fluids – so whatever your business needs, look no further than the PTFE smooth bore hoses from Proflex Hose.
