How To Install Fluoroplastic Hose



Do not bend or twist the hose as illustrated.
Allow enough slack in the hose line to provide for changes in length when pressure is applied. The hose will change in length from +2% to -3%.


Metal end fittings cannot be considered as part of the flexible portion of the assembly.
The use of elbows and adapters will assure easier installation and in many installations will remove the strain from the hose line and greatly increase service life.

At all times keep the minimum bend radius of the hose as large as possible to avoid the tube collapsing.  Never go below minimum bend radius which is given.
The table above lists a dimensions that we believe to be reliable.   Please note that many of these resins are produced in several grades and flexibility characteristics may vary.  Therefore, determination of resin is dependent on the application and this table is only meant to serve as a general guideline.
