High Pressure Smoothbore PTFE
Part No.: T1700 / T2000
Profile: Low Flexibility / High Pressure
Tube Available: PTFE Anti-static Inner Tube
Braid Available: 316 / 304 Stainless Steel
Size Available: 1/4’’ – 1 1/2’’
Temperature: -70°C to 260°C
T1700: Sintered/Permeation: Post Sintered (low level of permeation)
T2000: Sintered/Permeation: Slow Sintered (medium level of permeation)
High Pressure Smoothbore PTFE Use:
T1700 is the highest pressure PTFE hose in the market. It is post sintered for the lowest effusion levels for industrial gas applications.
T2000 is the highest pressure PTFE hose in the market. It is non-post
sintered and is more suited for general applications where particularly searching gases are not conveyed. Hydraulic and fluid transfer applications are best suited.

Conductive Hose Use
There are general principles we have applied to understand if anti-static (AS) is required or not and this very much depends on the medium passing through the hose.
1. For a single phase medium passing through the hose, AS is usually considered necessary where the medium electrical conductivity is less than 10,000 pS/m (pico Siemens per meter). Note electrical conductivity is not always known and electrical conductivity varies with temperature.
2. For a two (or more) phase medium (e.g. a mixture of gas and liquid (such as wet steam), solid particles and liquid or solid particles and gas) AS IS ALWAYS REQUIRED.
3. Pure clean gases should not require AS.
4. If there is any doubt always use AS. (Often customers do not know the electrical conductivity of the medium passing through the hose)
