Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom, 2008/04/15 - Aflex Hose again took its world leading PTFE product range to one of the world’s premier Pharmaceutical and Chemical exhibitions, Interphex Philadelphia - Flowtag.com.
The Aflex range was led by our flagship product Bioflex a true smoothbore flexible PTFE hose along with our sister products Corroflon, Pharmaline and Pharmalex and were joined by the world launch of Relink our reusable self assembled end fitting range, which is designed to compliment our range of PTFE hoses. Relink - a reusable coupling of the future available today!
At the exhibition, the Relink fitting was partnered to our Pharmalex range of hoses - a PTFE liner with clear outer silicone cover, the hose itself carries FDA certification for all materials, USP Class VI for assembled hose and Atex approval, add to this full certification including CE Marking and 3.1 Traceability and you have a natural successor to the shortfalls of silicone.
Interphex 2008 broke all records for Aflex with a record number of visitors attending our stand. Our experienced engineers held meetings with many of the world’s leading Pharmaceutical and Chemical companies and again showed our extensive PTFE hose range can answer any process or engineering issues and problems that were asked of it.
The Aflex stand was visited by engineers from Amgen, Pfizer, GSK, Novartis, Wyeth, BMS and many others, some with questions, others simply to see the PTFE hose range that is proving to the world that engineering excellence and quality are still available in today’s world of cheaper and inferior alternatives - quality will always prevail.
A member of what is considered to be the World’s Number One Pharmaceutical company made the following statement: "Never had we considered that a hose could take into account the rigors of todays processes, answer all the certification and safety issues and show a cost saving of over 50% based on 12-month usage". Today this company would not consider any other hoses.
One question that is always asked surrounds hose management and testing. There are passive RFID systems on the market, there are barcode systems, all based around existing technology, all requiring extreme close proximity reading. A joint venture between a renowned computer design house and the Aflex technology team allowed Aflex to launch FLOWTAG in Philadelphia. FLOWTAG is an active RFID system, readable from over 100 mtrs and with Atex approval.
Aflex Hose Ltd prides itself on listening to its customer base, considering its issues and designing products to answer its requirements. All products carry a 24-MONTH MANUFACTURERS WARRANTY and have the full support and back up of the Aflex distribution and assembly units based around the world.
