PTFE, or Polytetrafluoroethylene, is a high molecular weight fluorocarbon, offering a range of beneficial properties like chemical inertness, extreme temperature resistance, and a low coefficient of friction​​. Hydraflex, a leading manufacturer in the UK, provides a diverse range of PTFE products including smooth bore hoses and convoluted hoses. Their PTFE products cater to various applications demanding high chemical resistance, temperature tolerance, and hygiene​​.

Construction and Compliance

Hydraflex's PTFE products are meticulously crafted ensuring superior quality and compliance with industrial standards. The PTFE smooth bore hose from Hydraflex is manufactured from Teflon/PTFE with no additives, and wire braiding made from quality stainless steel. They also provide anti-static versions of hoses for transferring electrically resistive fluids at high rates. The construction allows for a wide operating temperature range of -60°C to +260°C​​.

Applications

PTFE products from Hydraflex are suitable for a myriad of applications involving aggressive chemicals, extreme temperatures, or where hygiene is paramount. Typical applications include fluid transfer operations in industries like chemical, pharmaceutical, food processing, and many others​.

Benefits and Features

PTFE's core benefits include its wide operating temperature range, chemical inertness, resistance to weathering and ageing, non-flammability, lightweight nature, superior fatigue flex, and low permeability. Additionally, PTFE has the lowest coefficient of friction among known solid materials and has an unlimited shelf life​​.

Availability and Customisation

Hydraflex offers both stock and customised solutions to meet specific customer requirements. They provide a range of ferrules for easy assembly by resellers and discuss customer-specific products with their sales team, subject to volume. There are also additional PTFE solutions like tape wrapped PTFE and tufted assemblies to encapsulate the assembly providing a fully chemical resistance solution​​.
