Aerocom’s PTFE hose and PTFE hose assemblies are what’s required for those especially challenging fluid connector environments. If your application is too hot or cold (even including cryogenic) or too corrosive for metal or rubber hose assemblies, Aerocom can support you in finding the best PTFE hose for your particular application (and the PTFE fittings too). We offer several types of smoothbore hose for various pressures, up to 6000psi! If flexibility is your priority, then our convoluted or our open-pitch convoluted hose would be a better fit. These are less prone to kinking and are available in conductive and non-conductive versions. Our fittings are specifically designed for each type of hose and are available in NPT, JIC and a wide variety of other threads.
We can also fabricate custom PTFE hose assemblies which will meet the specifications of your challenging environments. Every hose assembly is hydrostatically tested in-house prior to shipping to ensure they meet your requirements !
Stainless steel is inert to practically all commercial chemicals, acids, alcohols, coolants, elastomers, petroleum compounds, solvents vinyl’s, synthetic lubricants and hydraulic fluids. It is also impervious to atmospheric conditions. It will therefore not rust or deteriorate over time even in challenging environments and most importantly will not break down and contaminate the application material, fluid or gas.
Stainless steel 316 has been approved by the FDA and other governmental organizations for use in food handling and pharmaceutical applications. Stainless steel 316 is more resistant than 304 to salt (which is found in most foods). It is easy to clean and sterilize which makes it the perfect material for these applications.
Stainless Steel 316L is the standard material for our adapters and hose couplings. We can also provide our flexible metal hose assemblies with SS316 braid and hose. We have selected this material because of its combined chemical and mechanical properties that make it the best material for your specialized applications.
Ultra high pressure 5000 psi hose constructed with an extruded smooth bore inner-core of carbon black static dissipative PTFE with a single stainless steel 304 wire braid reinforcement layer. This sturdy PTFE hose resists kinking and has a tight bend radius.
Ultra high pressure 6000 psi PTFE hose constructed with an extruded smooth bore inner-core of carbon black static dissipative PTFE with layers of spiral wrap between two layers of stainless steel 304 wire braid reinforcements which makes this hose the pinnacle in extremely high-pressure applications.
Smoothbore hose which is constructed of an extruded inner-core of virgin PTFE (standard) or carbon black dissipative PTFE with stainless steel 304 wire braid reinforcement. It meets the requirements of SAE100R14.
Abrasion resistant rubber (EPDM) covered PTFE smooth bore hose with horizontal fabric braid reinforcement. The double steel wire helix supports the shape (especially in full vacuum service applications), prevents kinking and provides a double grounding path to release any built-up electrical charge.
Open Pitch convoluted PTFE hose with stainless steel 304 wire braid reinforcement. Its innovative spiral convolution design allows for increased flow rates, self-draining, greater hose flexibility and reduced kinking.
Super flexible convoluted PTFE hose with white, non-conductive PTFE line (or black conductive), externally reinforced with PTFE impregnated fiberglass tape in a single stainless steel wire braid layer. For high pressure with a very tight bend radius applications.
Convoluted PTFE hose with polypropylene braid for use where hose flexibility is required but stainless steel braid is unsuitable or saltwater or chlorinated solvent environments. It has a white (or black) PTFE helical, convoluted tube reinforced with polypropylene over braid.
Medium pressure smooth bore hose fittings which can be swaged or crimped. Easy to use fitting and collar design which can be attached to 0.030” and 0.040” wall.
Aerocom’s SK11 series PTFE fittings series are a 2-piece (insert and collar) design which can be swaged or crimped onto our convoluted and open-pitch PTFE hose. Available in SS316.
Our stainless steel tube fittings are more commonly called JICs. Our SAE J514 parallel threaded tube adapters (37° flare seating surface) are, in many cases, better suited for higher pressure fitting applications. We offer JICs in stainless steel caps, plugs elbows, tees, crosses, straights, and bulkhead adapters.
O-ring adapters, also known as ORB or SAE adapters, have parallel threads which seal with the o-ring on the chamfer of the mating part. We offer our ORB fittings in stainless steel 316L in straight, elbows, plugs, adjustables, tees, as well as converting to other threads (such as JIC or NPT) on the second end.
We offer SS316 NPT adapters in straight, elbows, caps, plugs, unions, bushings, expanders and reducers. We also offer NPSM ends with a 30° cone which seats on the 30° chamfer on our male NPT end. Unlike the stainless steel tube fittings, the NPT adapters seal on the tapered threads (and in some applications, with thread lubricant of some type).
Aerocom offers several types of protective hose coverings to help extend the service life of your PTFE and metallic hose assemblies.
