PTFE and Rubber Hoses

PTFE & Rubber Hoses

Aero-Flex supplies both Aerospace & Industrial hoses to our customers. PTFE is an engineered fluoropolymer. It has outstanding resistance to chemicals and is one of its primary characteristics. With a temperature range of -100°F to 500°F,  this hose material is actually suitable for the majority of fluid and ambient temperature conditions. Also an extremely low coefficient of friction provides a non-stick surface. Additionally water absorption of PTFE is negligible, less than 0.01% by ASTM test. More importantly it is also FDA-approved for food and pharmaceutical use. Additionally PTFE will withstand flexing and vibration without failure from flex fatigue. PTFE is chemically inert, it will not break down or deteriorate in service. Above all it has an unlimited shelf life because properties do not change with age or exposure to weather.

PTFE hose inner core comes in two types of configurations. Smooth Bore is where the ID of the hose is smooth. If precise flow control is a priority, you should choose smooth bore. This is possible because there are no irregularities in the wall that can cause interruptions. Smooth bore also promotes self draining. Convoluted hose core promotes flexibility in your hose and is used when flow control is not an issue and flexibility is important.

Aero-Flex works closely with leading industrial hose manufacturers. In other words, We have partnered with Parker, Eaton and Titeflex Industrial to supply the exact hose you need for your application.

We offer hoses for:

  • Hydraulic systems
  • Chemical applications
  • Pharmaceutical applications
  • Petroleum transfer hoses
  • Sanitary Hoses

As a matter of fact, we can also supply custom hoses to your exact requirements. Just send us the hoses and we will do the rest. Aero-Flex covers all types of applications, pressures and environments your hose assembly may encounter.

Aero-Flex also works closely with the Aerospace divisions of the above companies. For example, Parker/Stratoflex, Eaton Aeroquip and Titeflex Aerospace. We can supply flight ready TSO certified aircraft hose assemblies for a variety of aircraft and specific applications.

For Instance,

  • Fuel Hoses
  • Hydrauilc Hoses
  • Drain Hoses
  • Oxygen Hoses
  • Instrumentation Hoses

Aero-Flex offers PTFE hoses in a variety of configurations. PTFE hose inner core is offered in smooth bore and convoluted, conductive (Carbon black added) and non-conductive. Type 304 stainless steel wire braid is the standard reinforcement with other specialty materials available.

Aerospace hose assemblies are manufactured to specifications that include AS620, AS1339, AS1946, AS604  MIL-DTL-26626, MIL-DTL-25579, MIL-DTL-27267. We also supply what is called TSO hose assemblies. A TSO is a minimum performance standard for specified materials, parts, and appliances used on civil aircraft. Your hoses will come assembled, pressure tested and with a manufacturers C of C.  This way they can go right on your aircraft and get you back in the air as soon as possible with minimum down time.
