FP Series PTFE-Metal Hybrid Hose

FP Series PTFE-Metal Hybrid Hose

The Swagelok FP Series Hose has the flexibility of all-metal and cleanability of a PTFE-core. This unique hose design will not allow permeation to the atmosphere outside the hose. End connections are welded to the adapter collar.

FP Series Hose Features

FP Series Hybrid Hose Diagram
  • Smooth-bore PTFE core minimizes turbulence
  • 316L stainless steel convoluted cover provides permeation resistance
  • Recommended temperature rate of 9 to 150°F (-17 to 65°C)
  • Sizes of 1/4 and 1/2 in. and working pressures from vacuum to 116 psig (8.0 bar)
  • End connections welded in accordance with ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section IX
  • Commonly used as a low-pressure transfer hose where a smooth bore for ultra-high purity is critical and permeation to the atmosphere is undesirable
  • Standard and custom assemblies available
  • Options include hose covers, hose tags, and additional helium leak testing. Please contact your authorized Swagelok representative for details.

Applications for Use

  • Ideal for applications where vacuum or ultra-high purity conditions exist, flow control is critical, and the system must be easy-to-clean.
  • Semiconductor chip manufacturers will find this hose especially appealing as it can be hooked up to tools much faster (12-20x) without weldments and no concern for disruptive flow or permeating dangerous gases.

Testing

Every Swagelok FP series hose assembly is inboard helium leak tested to a maximum leak rate of 1 × 10–9 std cm3/s to ensure product integrity. Additional testing is available, such as UV-A and RGA.

Cleaning and Packaging

Each Swagelok FP series hose is bagged individually and boxed.
