Flexible hose assemblies

Pharmaline N and X

Overview

Pharmaline N and X

PTFE-lined hose for biotechnology and pharmaceutical fluid transfers

Designed to replace silicone rubber transfer hoses in pharmaceutical, chemical and food process fluid transfer applications, Pharmaline N and X hoses are smooth bore and withstand repeated autoclave cycles.

Features and benefits

  • Replaces silicone rubber hose in applications where total internal chemical resistance is required
  • Smooth bore for uninterrupted fluid flow and ease of cleaning
  • Very flexible, yet kink resistant with a natural or anti-static PTFE liner
  • Range of non-lined end fittings with laser etched ferrule for ultimate traceability
  • Fully encapsulated hygienic labeling system available
  • Assemblies suitable for COP soaking, CIP and SIP cleaning, and extensive autoclave sterilizing cycles

* Maximum working pressures vary with temperature. The maximum working pressure (MWP) of a hose assembly is limited to the lowest of the MWP’s of either of the two end fittings, or of the hose itself as listed above. The MWP of the hose reduces as the operating temperature increases, consult Aflex Hose for guidance.
