A wide range of fluoropolymer hoses, now available from U.S. Hose Company, offer the chemical resistance required for many of today’s applications. These thermoplastics include FDA approved materials for food applications, and the full range of products includes Jackson Industries hoses for working pressures up to 6,000 psi/414 bar.
Fluoropolymer hoses are inert to virtually all commercial chemicals, acids, alcohols, coolants, petroleum compounds, solvents, vinyls, synthetic lubricants, and hydraulic fluids. In addition, they are not affected by continuous flexing, vibration, or impulse, and they withstand cold and heat cycling. Furthermore, the low friction surface of these smooth bore hoses provides for high flow rates. As a result, these hoses are ideals for many of today’s difficult or severe service applications.
