PTFEN tubing is TSE-free, resistant to cleaning agent and not affected by challenging ambient atmospheric conditions.
Festo’s newest line of FDA-compliant pneumatic tubing – PTFEN – delivers excellent high pressure, heat, corrosion and hydrolysis resistance required for harsh operating environments in many process industries. Made of polytetrafluorethylene, this extremely robust tubing is TSE-free, resistant to cleaning agent and not affected by challenging ambient atmospheric conditions. Microbes and other active agents and contaminants don’t stick to polytetrafluorethylene, making PTFEN tubing easier to clean and ideal not only for food production but also for manufacturing in the chemical, semiconductor, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.
Depending on the recommended Festo fitting with which it is paired, PTFEN tubing is rated for up to 6 bar at 130ºC for pressure resistance, or 150ºC for heat resistance. It’s offered in seven different outside diameters, ranging from 4 to 16 mm. With more than 200 nickel-plated brass and stainless steel fittings available, Festo will recommend the ideal combination for each application.
