Corroline+ hose is custom built into hose assemblies after the hose size and grade, length and end fittings have been selected.
The specification and information contained in this brochure can be used to make these selections, but if there are any doubts concerning the hose usage limitations or performance capabilities, customers should request expert advice from Aflex Hose.
There are two types of PTFE hose liner tube available, natural (GP) grade and antistatic black (AS) grade.
If needed there are 3 options for extra protection of the hose against externally applied abrasion and mechanical damage:
The lengths of Corroline+ hose assemblies are as specified by the customer and the length is measured from the sealing face at one end fitting to the same at the other end of the hose.
The range of non-lined standard PTFE tail end fittings and materials can be viewed in the End Fittings section of our website, or by downloading the brochure.
Flange fittings and Cam and Groove fittings are available either non-lined, or with integral PTFE lined and flared ends.

The quantity, hose size, grade, length and fittings must be specified in full.
Either by a full, written description. The hose grade can be specified by the code initials e.g. ‘Corroline+ AS, SG’ defines an antistatic PTFE lined hose which includes an outer Safegard sleeve.
The quantity, length and fittings can then be written in - e.g. “4 off x 1” bore Corroline+ AS, SG hose x 3.00 metres long. Both ends non-lined ANSI 150# S/S Flanges”.
or by Part Numbers, as defined in Part Numbers - e.g. 4 off Part No. 16-CLN+AS-SG-3.00m-12-12
