We worked with a food and drink customer to create a custom PFA tubing assembly. Used to deliver fluids in a cleaning system, the tubing material needed to be FDA raw polymer compliant and suitable for food and drink applications. The bespoke tubing assembly fit our customer’s application precisely and saved him time, money and effort.
Used for solvent delivery in a food & drink cleaning application, our customer required a bespoke PFA tubing with custom fittings. Flangeless ETFE ferrules were applied to the fluoroplastic tube in order to attach the fitting to the tubing and to ensure the component fit precisely in the cleaning application. For this project, FDA raw polymer compliant PFA was selected for its bio-compatibility, chemicals and solvent resistance, lubricious surface, high purity and toughness.
Rather than having to source a separate tube and fitting, buying a complete tubing assembly saved our customer time, money and effort. The bespoke assembly was also packed and kitted as requested. This helped our customer design his application efficiently and enabled him to focus on his core capabilities, increase his capacity and meet his customers’ growing demand.
Any PTFE, FEP, PFA and PVDF tubing can be converted to create custom preformed tubing assemblies that meet your exact requirements. Any length of tube can be provided, alongside bespoke fittings, to suit your needs. The tubing can also be bagged as kits to meet your packing requirements.
Using thermoforming, flaring, flanging and welding techniques, custom designs can be added to your fluoroplastic tubing:
Moulded tips and collars
Heat shrinkable collars
90-degree bends along the length of the tube
Swages between multiple sized tubes
