There is a fundamental problem with larger sizes of standard, smooth bore PTFE hose products – as the hose size increases above 1/4”, so smooth bore PTFE lined hose become significantly less flexible, and more easily kinked. One solution is to use a conventional convoluted PTFE lined hose, but the internal convolutions make the hose difficult to assemble, and reduces fluid flow rates due to turbulent flow.
The advantage of a smooth bore hose as compared with a convoluted bore is that it is easy clean, and does not create “turbulent flow”, which drastically reduces fluid flow rates. We manufacture Stainless Steel Braided Hose Assemblies (PFTE) for number of applications, such as;
