Durable Teflon hoses
“CO-RO FOOD A/S has always had a strong focus on production technology and believes in the principle that top quality in the end product starts with top quality in the raw materials. In addition, we closely monitor all internal processes in our quality management and all phases of production are documented. The fact that we have switched to Alfotech's Teflon hoses has provided several advantages. The hoses are always tight at the joints entailing that our air compressor runs less and thus saves us money. The Teflon hoses are chemical resistant and can withstand our cleaning. They are a little more expensive to buy, but the durability means that the money is quickly earned back," says Rudi Hein, Maintenance Assistant, Tech at CO-RO A/S.
The advantages of Teflon hoses
Traditional PVC hoses can advantageously be replaced by hoses made of PTFE. One of the advantages of the hoses is durability, especially when used in areas where cleaning is done with low-pressure cleaning systems. High chemical concentration will quickly dry out the hoses and increase the risk of breakage of PVC hoses, whereas Teflon hoses will continue to last. Another benefit is energy savings and thus, in the long run, economic benefits. Dong Energy has calculated that a leakage loss through a 1 mm hole, at 8 bar in a compressed air network gives a loss of DKK 5,200.- per year.
The hoses are extruded in PTFE and can be delivered in different colours as shown in the picture, as well as other colours up to Ø50 mm. The hoses are FDA-approved, can be sterilized, and has a temperature range from -73°C to +260°C.
