*Hydraulic Bore Size - The actual bore sizes of Hyperline FX hose are slightly larger than the nominal size, to allow the insertion and assembly of standard Hydraulic Fittings, using ferrules supplied by Aflex Hose (see Self-Assembly).

 

Properties

Temperatures and Pressures

Hyperline FX, SS Grades - The MWP listed above should be reduced by 1% for each 1˚C above 160˚C (1% for each 1.8˚F above 320˚F) up to a maximum of 260˚C (500˚F).

Hyperline FX, AM Grades - The MWP listed above should be reduced by 1% for each 1˚C above 130˚C (1% for each 1.8˚F above 266˚F) up to a maximum of 180˚C (356˚F).

Maximum Working Pressures (MWP) listed are calculated on the basis of a 3:1 safety factor relative to the burst pressure, so Burst Pressure = 3 x MWP. If MWP is required based on a 4:1 safety factor (e.g. EN 16643 requirement), multiply the listed value by 0.75.

Vacuum Resistance

Hyperline FX, SS Grades are vacuum resistant to -0.9bar up to 130˚C (266˚F).

Excellent Flow Rates

Compared with conventional convoluted hose designs, Hyperline FX has excellent flow rates due to the smooth bore, which prevents the turbulent fluid flow which occurs in convoluted hose products.

Reduced Diffusion Rates

Hyperline FX is much more resistant to diffusion of liquids or gases than other PTFE hose products, due to its highly compressed, non-porous PTFE matrix. Hyperline FX has been successfully tested to SAE J1737 for resistance to automotive fuel diffusion.

Non-Stick Internal Surface

Hyperline FX hose has a smooth bore, non-stick liner which is effectively “self-cleaning”, and which resists material build-up inside the hose which may cause bore constriction.

 

Loose Hose Lengths

Loose hose is supplied in random lengths up to a maximum of 18 metres (60 feet) long.

 

Assembled Hose Lengths

Hyperline FX hose assemblies are made up to the specific lengths required. The hose length is taken as the length from the sealing face at one end of the hose to the same at the other end. The length tolerance is normally +2% / -0%. Closer tolerances are available to special order.
