Technical informations

PTFE hoses are individually manufactured for the relevant application. To determine the hose structure in more detail, the operating conditions under which the hose is to be used are established in a first step.

This includes:

  • the medium
  • the dimensions, such as length and nominal diameter
  • the fittings
  • the operating pressure
  • the operating temperature
  • the bending radius
  • the conductivity
  • the mechanical forces

The technical data regarding the operating conditions are very important for choosing the correct hose assembly. As an example, the illustrations show the dependence of the operating pressure on the temperature for PTFE hoses in different nominal diameters. The higher the operating temperature, the lower the maximum operating pressure.
