Corroflon PTFE Hose
Corroflon hose sets the standard for fluoropolymer hose designs which have a very flexible convoluted liner. The PTFE liner in Corroflon has shallow convolutions which minimise the restriction in flow rates, and a reinforcement wire in the external convolutions provides full kink resistance and is usable at vacuum. Like all the other Aflex Hose products, Corroflon is an excellent chemical suction discharge hose for process fluid transfer.
Convoluted, Reinforced PTFE Lined Hose
Corroflon was launched in 1978 and, since then, has been continually updated and improved. Now it is the industry-standard convoluted flexible PTFE hose for major chemical, pharmaceutical and food companies worldwide.
The key to Corroflon's success lies in its design and build quality, which guarantees a long, safe and reliable service life.
Corroflon's design differs from every other convoluted PTFE hose on the market, which results in distinctive and measurable performance and safety advantages.
Firstly, Corroflon will give better cleanability and drainability than any other convoluted PTFE hose on the market. This is because Corroflon is designed and manufactured in such a way that the angle of the convolutions is extremely shallow - 80û to 120û, compared with only 45û to 65û in other convoluted hose designs.
Secondly, Corroflon is the only PTFE lined convoluted hose on the market to be fully kink and usable at vacuum at high pressures and temperatures. This is because Corroflon's design incorporates a thick section external helical reinforcement wire which gives the radial support necessary to ensure maximum strength, whilst maintaining optimum flexibility and cleanability. The helix wire is welded directly to the end fittings at each end, ensuring security of attachment and electrical continuity.
And thirdly, Aflex is the only PTFE hose manufacturer to guarantee a minimum PTFE liner thickness of 1.5mm for hose sizes 1" and above, which ensures sufficient strength to prevent the tube from being internally pressurised from a sine wave shape into an extended square wave shape, which would lead to porosity, and eventually premature failure of the tube. This thick wall liner also minimises permeation, and is extended through the end fittings to give an uninterrupted clean flow of fluid through the fitting.

"I received the cart yesterday, thanks for the fast delivery! It feels sturdy. I sat on it. It does not bounce. It is also easy to clean and wipe or wash down."
Vice President, Analytical Development and Manufacturing
"Thanks again for reacting so quickly and meeting me halfway with the element. We will be able to get installed and have things keep moving overnight with the night crew. The little things like this are always greatly appreciated when working with Liquidyne."
“This pump cut our processing time from 3 days to 1 shift. I’m not giving this pump back. You will have to come and get it if you want it... and that won’t likely happen.”
