New Color Options for Reinforced Silicone Hose Help Identify Lines

Color Tracer Lines Distinguish Between Multiple Hoses

Southampton, PA - New from AdvantaPure is Color Braid Silicone Hose, a unique advantage for line identification. Incorporated into flexible, braid-reinforced silicone hose, the colored braid material provides an easy-to-see tracer line and offers a quick way to differentiate between lines used for the transfer and processing of fluids, air, or granular materials. Industries that benefit from this feature include pharmaceutical, biomedical, food, beverage, dairy, soap and cosmetics, chemical, medical, and other high purity applications.

AdvantaPure's Color Braid Silicone Hose begins with a core of low volatile grade, platinum cured silicone elastomer. The core material is also NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) 51 listed. To enhance pressure-carrying capabilities, polyester braiding, including the tracer line, is then applied, and an outer layer of silicone completes the product. By incorporating the identifying colors into the interior braid layer, the hose retains its compliancy with Class VI, FDA CFR 177.2600, ISO 10993, European Pharmacopoeia 3.1.9, and 3A standards.

The hose's colored braid is used among other braid material, which is white. Braid colors currently offered include red, blue, green, and yellow. Uses for identification can be as simple as red for a high temperature line and blue for cold. Colors can be used to relate to equipment or products within the hose, to signify direction of flow, and for other identification needs. As a custom option multiple braid colors may be used in a single hose.

Color Braid Silicone Hose is available in I.D. sizes from 1/16" to 1". Temperature use encompasses a wide range of -100°F to 400°F, and the hose is sterilizable/autoclavable.
