Teflon hoses pay off at food company CO-RO.

Teflon pays off

"We have always had a strong focus on production technology and believe in the principle that excellence in the end product starts with excellence in the raw materials. Furthermore, we closely monitor all internal processes in our quality management and all stages of production are documented. Switching to Alfotech's Teflon hoses has brought several benefits. The hoses are always tight at the joints, so our air compressor runs less and saves us money. The Teflon hoses are chemical resistant and can withstand our cleaning. They are a little more expensive to buy, but their durability means that the money is quickly recouped."

These are the words of Rudi Hein, Maintenance Assistant, Tech at CO-RO A/S.

Advantages of Teflon hoses
Traditional PVC hoses can be replaced with PTFE hoses.

One of the advantages of Teflon hoses is their durability, especially when used in areas where low-pressure cleaning systems are used. High chemical concentration will quickly dry out the hoses and increase the risk of breakage on PVC hoses, whereas Teflon hoses will continue to last. Another benefit is energy savings and thus better operating economy in the long run.

Dong Energy has calculated that a leakage loss through a 1 mm hole at 8 bar in a compressed air network results in a loss of DKK 5.200 per year.

Large selection of Teflon hoses

We have a large selection of Teflon hoses available in several colors, including the ones shown in the picture. We also supply in other colors up to ø50 mm. The hoses, which are all FDA-approved, are extruded in PTFE. They can be sterilized and cover temperatures from -73°C to +260°C.
