Specifications for Visiflon Hose Grades

Note: Specifications listed below are for non-AS Grades. For AS Grades the specifications are all the same, except that “AS” is added to the Grade Reference, and the Part Number reads “-110-” in place of “-100-”.

*Visiflon Hose assemblies require that the convolutions at the ends of the hose are opened out to accept either Hydraulic or PTFE Tail end fittings (see Assembly Instructions).

Note: Many of the sizes of hose and fittings listed in this brochure are available as ex-stock items and are priced accordingly. However, some of the less popular items are not always in stock, and may therefore incur a minimum order charge or a set-up charge for smaller quantities. Aflex Hose will advise when the enquiry is made.

Properties

Temperatures and Pressures:

Visiflon TO Grades - The MWP listed above applies up to a maximum temperature of 100˚C (212˚F).

Visiflon SS Grades - The MWP listed above should be reduced by 1% for each 1˚C above 130˚C up to a maximum of 230˚C (1% for each 1.8˚F above 266˚F up to a maximum of 445˚F).

Visiflon PB Grades - The MWP listed should be reduced by 5% for each 1˚C above 80˚C up to a maximum of 100˚C (5% for each1.8˚F above 176˚F to 212˚F).

Vacuum Resistance:

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

Visiflon TO and PB Grades are vacuum resistant to -0.9 bar up to 80˚C (176˚F).

Flow Rates:

The internal convolutions restrict flow rates due to turbulent flow, and may also cause a whistling noise when gases are passed through. For any applications where this may be a problem, the alternative Aflex Hose products Hyperline FX or Corroline would provide a solution.
