Parker FEP Tubing Resists More Chemicals Than Thermoplastic Tubing

Fort Worth, TX — Parker Hannifin, the mobile leader in control technology, offers FEP tubing for high temperature applications where chemicals are used. It is extremely resistant to the most highly corrosive chemicals such as aqua regina, hydrofluoric acid and hydrogen peroxide, just to name a few. Only molten alkali metals, such as sodium or potassium, chlorine trifluoride and gaseous fluorine at elevated temperatures and pressures will attack FEP chemically.

Chemically inert, translucent FEP tubing is weldable and non-wetting.  The tubing will not crack, degrade or discolor and operates in temperatures up to 400°F (204°C).  The low refractive index allows operators to visually inspect for contaminants, flow interruptions and leak detection.  Tubing sizes range from .010" I.D. up to 4" I.D. and tubing is extruded from the Parflex Division in Fort Worth, Texas.  Tubes can be supplied in smoothbore or in an extra flexible convoluted or corrugated style.

With annual sales of $13 billion in fiscal year 2014, Parker Hannifin is the world's leading diversified manufacturer of motion and control technologies and systems, providing precision-engineered solutions for a wide variety of mobile, industrial and aerospace markets. The company employs approximately 57,500 people in 50 countries around the world. Parker has increased its annual dividends paid to shareholders for 58 consecutive fiscal years, among the top five longest-running dividend-increase records in the SP 500 index.
