The use of fluoropolymers in the fluidic industry


Today, virtually every industry will use fluidics to accomplish various tasks. Fluidics is the technology of using liquid and gases to operate a control system. It can be broken down into 2 types: Hydraulics and Pneumatics.

Hydraulics is the technology of using pressurized liquid to transmit force and energy. Pneumatics is the technology of using pressurized gases to transmit force and energy.

Here at Adtech, we supply a wide range of fluoropolymers to partners working in this market.

Are you utilising fluidics?

Though most of us do not realise, we are surrounded by systems that use hydraulics and pneumatics daily.

Hydraulics, for example, are used to power lifts, and heavy machinery such as cranes and forklifts. If you drive a car, your vehicle’s braking system will be powered by hydraulics. Pressing your foot down on the brake exerts pressure on the brake fluid, emitting a force onto the brake pads and discs, causing the car to slow down. Hydraulic systems can even be found in amusement parks. Ferris Wheels, for example, rely on hydraulics to keep the ride in motion.

Pneumatic systems can similarly be found surrounding us every day. Exercise machines, bicycle pumps, vacuum cleaners, and even a dentist’s drill rely on pneumatics to power them.

Benefits of fluoropolymers for fluidic applications

There are numerous advantages to using fluoroplastics for your fluidic application. These include:

  • Environmental tolerance – resistant to chemicals, weather and high temperatures.

  • High reliability – because our fluoropolymers are suitable in a variety of environments with no risk of damage, it makes them the most reliable choice of material in this industry.

  • Cost-effectiveness – the high reliability, environmental tolerability ensures that our fluoropolymers will have low maintenance costs.

Fluoropolymer products for fluidic applications

We supply a range of fluoropolymer products suitable for use in the fluidic industry:

We hold a wide range of metric and imperial PTFE and FEP tubing in stock, but we can manufacture bespoke assemblies if need be.
