Venair launches a PTFE hose highly resistant and flexible for conveying agressive chemicals by impulsion or suction in food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical applications. The hose it’s made with an ultra-flexible soothbore construction, ideal for powder, liquid and semi-liquid processing in applications where a hygienic design and good mehanical performance are required.

Pharma PTFE hose

Properties

The materials and constructions of Vena® Flexpure allow them to have the following properties:

  • Operational temperature range from -50°C (-58 F) to +200°C (392 F).
  • It can be cleaned with steam or SIP (steam) process and CIP process- acidic and some basic under demanding conditions.
  • High resistance to abrasion and hydrocarbon fluids.
  • Guarantees maximum flexibility while a high kink resistance.

The construction

Vena® Flexpure is a flexible hose manufactured hose with inner PTFE resisns, braided with stainless steel, covered with white rubber silicone. The construciton allows to present the following properties:

  • Odorless, tasteless and completely non-toxic.
  • White and smooth outer appearance.
  • White smoothbore inner layer to guarantee the maximum flexibility while a high kink resistance.
  • Can be equipped with 316L stainless steel fittings on each end with a roughness value of less than 0,8um (smallest roughness is possible on request).

The standard manufacturing lenght is 4 meters long (13.12 ft.), but in specific diameters a length of 6 meters (19.69 ft) can be manufactured.

Tested and certified

Also, Vena®Flexpure construction and materials have been tested in several quality controls and tests, which highlights its competitive properties, however it also complies with the most demanding regulations:

The inner PTFE is in compliance with:
