PTFE Flexible Hose.
                  Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is an engineered fluoropolymer, and has numerous applications. It is a thermoplastic polymer and has exceptional resistance to a wide variety of chemicals. PTFE Hose has increased resistance to vibration and flexing, and is a considerable saving in replacement cost, when used to replace other material hoses.
                  It has excellent shelf life, practically unlimited. Used more commonly for sanitary applications. Unlike other non metal hose, PTFE Hose will not impart taste, or odour or contaminate the inner media.
Smooth Bore PTFE Hose
Description

                  Smooth Bore PTFE Hose offers maximum flow, along with average flexibility. It is plain and smooth from inside and outside, without convolutions. So it can be easily cleaned from inside.

                  Heavy gauge hard Stainless Steel 304 wire is used for external
braiding, which provides increased pressure rating and external resistance
of the hose from corrosive chemicals.

                  Ocelflex industries' PTFE Hose are designed to ensure minimum
porosity and maximum flexibility.
These non metallic hoses are available in
long lengths. Plain PTFE is excellent for applications in which minimum
flexing or movement is required.

It has excellent chemical resistance, non contamination properties
and resists deterioration. Provides good flexing for longer lengths of the
hose, and is used for applications which require medium pressure.
Silicon sleeve or Rubber hose covering can be used
externally for protection against external harsh environments.

Convoluted PTFE Hose
Description
                The fundamental issue with smooth bore PTFE hose is that as its inner diameter increases, the flexibility reduces. Apart from 1/4" Smooth bore
PTFE hose,for particular smaller lengths the flexibility for larger sizes is
relatively much less. So for larger diameters,the plain PTFE hose behaves
as a rigid pipe or provides minimum flexibility. In order to increase the
flexibility, Convoluted PTFE hoses are preferred.

                The plain tube is convoluted using a forming die, and then heated
to bond the layers. The convolutions are helically formed to provide
maximum flexibility even for smaller lengths.

              The convolutions are spread at a greater angle so as to provide
better cleanability and drain-ability as compared to other convoluted
hoses available in the market.

              Ocelflex's uniquely designed Convoluted PTFE hoses provide
greater flexibility even for hoses with larger inner diameter, or smaller
lengths, without compromising on other technical ratings.

            The hose has excellent temperature characteristics, chemical
resistance, low coefficient of friction, resists deterioration and has mild
pressure ratings.

             Externally rubber hose, or silicone sleeve can be used to cover
the hose to protect it against harsh or corrosive external environments.

Vacuum PTFE Hose
Description
            Vacuum PTFE Hose, with an external vacuum metal wire, offers maximum flow, increased crush resistance
and vacuum capability, along with great flexibility as compared to a Smooth bore
PTFE hose of the same specification. Designed using open pitched, helical convolutions
for the ease of cleaning
. More bend radii than a smooth bore PTFE Hose.

Braided with heavy gauge Stainless Steel 304 wire, to improve the pressure capability
and external protection during and after installation.

Used for applications which have medium pressure to full vacuum, and
require more flexing.

Steel Braided PTFE Hose with Crimped Fittings
Description
               A large variety of end connections are available to be used with PTFE
Hoses, whether it be Smoothbore PTFE Hose or Convoluted PTFE Hose or
Vacuum PTFE Hose.

               The PTFE hose assemblies are specially designed to be crimped to the
hose. Once manufactured, the End Fittings are tightly crimped to the hose,
as per the end user requirement. The entire hose assembly is 100% leakage
tested, hydraulically or pneumatically.

It should be noted that for PTFE Hose with Crimped Fittings, the inner
diameter is reduced as compared to its actual Nominal Bore.
Also, the inner
media will be subjected to the metallic material at the end fittings area,
so
such crimped fittings should not be used for applications which require
otherwise.

               For applications in which the inner media should not be in contact
with any metallic surface, read the PTFE Hose with Flared End Fittings
section below.

               All our PTFE hoses are food grade type, and best suited for Food,
Dairy and Pharmaceutical industries and so can the uniquely designed
Stainless Steel 316 fittings be used for food and dairy related applications.
At Ocelflex these are produced in an hygienic and clean environment, suitable for use in food and beverages related products.

               At Ocelflex we can design a wide range of fittings as per International Standards
such as ANSI/ASME, JIS, BS, PN, UNUF, ISO, KF etc, or can manufacture them as per a particular application.

Steel Braided PTFE Hose with Flared / Lined End Fittings
Description
                    PTFE Flared / Lined Flexible Hoses are used in applications which require full contact of the inner media with PTFE throughout the hose, in order to avoid contact of the inner media with metal fittings. Manufacturing this is a very unique procedure, wherein the inner PTFE tube is extended outside the hose
and spread over the fitting, by a special procedure, known as flaring.

                    FLared PTFE Hose also eliminates bacteria
traps during usage.
These PTFE Hoses are constructed
as a single tube, extruded on the outside and then
flared, as a consequence of which the inner diameter
will be equivalent to the actual inner diameter
,
which guarantee no chances of leakage and
maximum flow benefits.

                    Not only does this Teflon lining procedure
ensure better quality but also helps extend the life
of the hoses, as compared to Non-flared hoses.
However,for applications where the interference of
the inner media with the end fitting material is not
an issue, flaring may not be required.

                    Since PTFE ( Teflon ) is used more often
for Food grade products, the PTFE ( Teflon ) hoses with flared ends are more preferable where food and beverages related applications are concerned.

Heavy Walled PTFE Lined Hose with Flared Fittings
Description
                    Thick walled PTFE lined inside a Stainless Steel Braided Hose. Used in application which have higher pressure rating.
The end fittings are flared, as a result of which the inner media does
not come in contact with any metal surface. Outer thick walled stainless
steel braided protection makes it ideal for applications in which the
external environment may be corrosive.

                    Thick walled PTFE Lining makes the hose rigid, allowing minimal
thermal expansion contraction,but not any flexibility.


                    The thickness will depend upon the applications, but more
commonly the thickness of the inner lining will range from 3mm to
8mm.
The plain inner surface provides better cleanability and
drain-ability
, at the same time adequate outer protection against external
corrosive environments.

                    Heavy walled PTFE Hose is 100% leak tested and a cost effective solution for a wide range of applications.
