Chemical hoses are used in a variety of industries, such as industrial manufacturing, pharmaceutical, chemical processing and food & beverage industries. But just because they are ubiquitous does not mean people understand the intricacies surrounding them or even about the different types of chemical hoses. There are several types of chemical hoses, but the primary types are UHMWPE, PTFE and Chemical B, outlined below:
The UHMWPE chemical hose (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene) is a high temperature, high pressure, discharge and suction hose. UHMWE chemical hoses are designed to withstand over 95% of all of the most commonly used chemicals, solvents and acids. They will not contaminate the product being transported. The UHMWPE chemical hose construction provides kink resistance, full suction capability and flexibility.
PTFE hoses are extremely flexible and versatile for use as a chemical hose. For example, B-Flex PTFE and B-Flex-B Carbon PTFE hoses have smooth inner cores that make them ideal for high pressure and easy drainage, and allows them to handle a variety of fluids due to their chemically resistant properties. Best of all, they have a non-aging surface, resulting in a long-lasting chemical hose solution for your manufacturing process and control.
The Chemical B Chemical Hose is a multi-purpose general hose designed for stronger, oxidizing acids, alcohols and ketones. The Chemical B chemical hose is also reinforced between synthetic textiles. The Chemical B chemical hose has a heat resistant cover that also protects against chemicals and weathering.
A quality high pressure chemical hose has the strength and ability to transfer a variety of industrial chemicals and there are unique types of chemical hoses for various industry needs. A bit of research will help you find the best chemical hose type for your needs.
