Aflex hose products are created through a combination of expert engineering and material knowledge

Lined with polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE), Aflex hoses offer excellent chemical resistance. Their structure provides a smooth bore to ensure clean, fast performance, resistant to high pressures and temperatures up to 260C.

PTFE is proven to outperform rubber, silicone and PVC in similar applications. Cleanability and steam resistance ensures compliance to the highest hygiene standards. Hoses are constructed without the use of adhesives, eliminating the risk of contamination.

Aflex hose unique PTFE liner

The patented design of the PTFE liner used in Aflex hoses allows the liner to expand around the outside and compress around the inside of a bend. This helps to retain a smooth circular bore throughout the hose, without distortion.

 

  • General purpose or anti-static options
  • No entrapment zones
  • Minimal turbulence means a faster flow rate
  • Excellent internal cleanability
  • Longer service life

Corroline+ transfer hose for battery manufacture

In South Korea, a lithium-ion battery manufacturer using a locally manufactured smooth PTFE hose was experiencing problems ranging from the hoses rupturing and leaking, to having very limited flexibility. The chemical transferred was an organic compound called N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone, so PTFE was needed to provide the required chemical compatibility.
