PureFlex MTH™ Smooth Bore Flexible Metal Hose, PTFE Lined

The PureFlex MTH™ Smooth Bore Flexible Metal PTFE Lined Hose is a stainless steel (other alloys available upon request) flexible metal hose lined with smooth PTFE liner and flared thru standard end fittings. Designed for applications requiring a large diameter smooth bore flexible hose combining the unexcelled corrosion resistance and sanitary properties of PTFE and the durability of flexible metal hose. This smooth bore hose is specified and used in an endless variety of applications where the conditions of service are beyond the capabilities of rubber, synthetic or metal hose alone. The PTFE smooth bore I.D.’s minimize pressure drop. MTH is available with virgin PTFE liner.

Product Features & Benefits

  • CORROSION RESISTANT:  PTFE is fully resistant to the broadest range of industrial chemicals and has a zero-corrosion rate, lower life cycle costs and is non-contaminating.
  • CLEANABLE: Non-Stick, low porosity tube does not trap bacteria, and can be readily cleaned with steam, detergents, caustics or solvents.
  • SANITARY: FDA approved materials meet or exceed 3A requirements.
  • COMPATIBLE: Will not contaminate or impart a taste, color or odor to any media.
  • DURABLE: Designed for extended use in hostile environments involving severe chemical, thermal and mechanical stresses. Does not suffer aging or embrittlement, even with extreme thermal cycling.
  • DOUBLE CONTAINMENT: Metal housing is a secondary containment vessel.

PTFE "Flared-Thru" Fittings

The thick PTFE tube passes through the end fitting and is flared radially outward against the sealing face of the fitting. This economical design creates a continuous PTFE fluid conduit. Standard fitting style available is ANSI B16.5 CL150 Flanged.  Flange materials available in Epoxy coated Carbon Steel, Durcor composite, 304SS and 316SS.
