Pressure and Temperature Limitations

Maximum Working Pressures -
as listed above apply from -40°C (-40°F) up to the maximum operating temperature of 150°C (302°F).

Burst Pressures -
The hose burst pressures are equal to or more than the maximum working pressures × 4.

Vacuum Limitations

Usable at vacuum to -0.9bar up to 150˚C/302˚F.

Flexibility

Much less force to bend than any other smooth bore PTFE lined hose product.

Kinkproof

Much more resistant to kinking than any other smooth bore PTFE lined hose product, and much more kink resistant than the previous Corroline product.

Fire resistance

Corroline+ hose is Fireproof to BS5173 Section 103.13 Parts 6.2 and 6.3, and Corroline+ hose assemblies can be upgraded to Fireproof by applying DBK 300 at each end. All assemblies comply with the flammability requirement as set out in EN 16643.

‘Rolling U’ Flex Life Test

More than 100 × the flex life to failure compared with all other types of smooth bore PTFE, FEP and PFA lined rubber covered hose products.

Flow rates

More than 2 times the flow rates for convoluted bore hose designs. Consult Aflex Hose for specific flow rate information.

Gas permeability

Reduced gas permeability compared with other PTFE lined hose designs, due to the heavy compression applied to the PTFE during processing, which reduces porosity.
