Southampton, PA, United States, 2008/10/28 - Now available from stock, EPDM hose offers excellent chemical resistance, flexibility, and a smooth, sanitary core. Called APEWF, the hose handles both pressure and vacuum applications and offers improved flexibility over stiffer fluoropolymer hose.
AdvantaPure is pleased to announce the immediate availability of its wire-reinforced EPDM hose for applications involving pharmaceuticals, chemicals, foods, and beverages. The highly flexible hose, called APEWF, is engineered to handle a wide variety of fluids in applications requiring elevated pressure and vacuum.
APEWF is constructed with a smooth, white EPDM rubber core reinforced with a wire helix and multiple layers of durable rubber. The hose provides flexibility and a smooth, sanitary inner surface for unrestricted flow. Uses cover pharmaceutical processing, beverage transfer, potable water lines, washdown stations, coolant transfer, glycol lines, and others.
The hose’s performance advantages include:
· Excellent chemical resistance properties;
· Improved flexibility over stiffer fluoropolymer hoses;
· Helical wire reinforcement to handle a higher level of internal pressures;
· Custom-designed hose construction to easily manage bends, turns, and corners;
· A smooth inner surface to resist bacteria build-up; complies with FDA standards.
APEWF handles temperatures from -40°F up to 248°F (-40°C to 120°C), a range wider than standard EPDM hoses. It’s stocked in sizes ranging from 3/4” to 4” I.D. (19mm to 102mm). A full line of crimp-styles fittings and collars is also stocked, and custom hose assemblies are available.
