AFlex FaBLINE PTFE lined Flexible Hose

PTFE-lined hoses for efficient food and beverage processing.

FaBLINE Flexible Hose

FaBLINE from Alex Hose offers excellent flexibility and a kink-free design -requiring less force to bend than competing smooth bore hose products.
FaBLINE hoses carry up to twice the flow of similar-sized delivery hoses, providing a faster, more efficient processing solution. For applications where hoses are utilized to dispense highly viscous materials in precise quantities, traditional rubber hoses can block or burst. FaBLINE’s low friction, smooth bore construction will minimize back-pressure to avoid downtime and material losses.

Dissolved oxygen (DO) is a major issue for the food and beverage industries due to the repetitive up-and-down action of food and beverage processing equipment. PTFE and PTFE-lined hose construction is ideal for food and beverage efficient product transfer and handling while simultaneously offering an exceptionally long service life. Its design retains a smooth circular bore without distortion, resulting in smooth, consistent flow with minimal turbulence.
