Parker PAGE recently released a line of its seamless convoluted PTFE hose with Nomex braid, a flame-resistant fabric with a texture that resembles nylon. According to the company, these Nomex-braided hose assemblies also deliver:
- Optimal flexibility, allowing the hose to not only route through tight areas, but also eliminate radio frequency interference issues seen in many applications having stainless steel reinforcements.
- A design less susceptible to cracking from stress or flexing than metal hose assemblies.
- Operating temperatures up to 400°F, yet Nomex is a much cooler reinforcement, thereby allowing operators to handle hoses without the risk of a burn.
- A lightweight profile — about 40 percent lighter than a typical stainless steel braided hose.
- Sizes from 1/4 up to 1 inch (inner dia.).
- An optional polyester monofilament scuff sleeve to resist abrasion.
- NCB static dissipative assemblies upon request.
