Flexible Hoses and Fittings handle gas and cryogenic chemicals.

Press Release Summary:

Flexible hoses and fitting series includes high-performance PTFE pigtail filling hoses with low permeation wall for oxygen filling as well as Oxy-Flex® Distance Volume Piece fittings. Using both in combination eliminates fire hazards during oxygen transfer. Featuring anti-whip armor casing, hoses and fittings restrict possibility of violent movement during any surge in pressure, and also offer complete gas containment in case of leakage.

Critical Connections Solutions Increase Safety and Performance Levels in Gas and Cryogenic Transfer Applications

Akron, OHIO - Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL) introduces a portfolio of critical connections solutions for demanding gas and cryogenic chemical processing applications. SGPPL's solutions maintain the safety and performance of these high-temperature, high-pressure, and highly corrosive chemical processes, while reducing costs with improved filling times.

SGPPL's critical connections solutions increase working safety during the transfer of cryogenics and compressed gases. The solutions comprise high-end flexible hoses and fittings with anti-whip armor casing that restrict the possibility of violent movement during any surge in pressure and also offer complete gas containment in the case of leakage.

The high-performance pigtail filling hose solution is designed with a low permeation wall, up to 33% thicker than prescribed industry standards, which significantly reduces gas leakage during transfer. A combination offering with SGPPL's Oxy-Flex® Distance Volume Piece fittings and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) pigtail hoses for oxygen filling eliminates fire hazards during oxygen transfer.

All SGPPL's high-tensile hoses and fittings are designed for faster filling, leading to lower production costs. They are fabricated by the company itself and have been 100% tested, which is beyond industry requirements, increasing the safety of the working environment as well as meeting the necessary Compressed Gas Association (CGA) requirements.

"At Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, we are focused on developing solutions that give plant managers and manufacturers peace of mind that the integrity of their operations is protected," says Lily Lei, Global Market Leader, Chemicals at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.
