Product insights

Chemical hoses are a critical component in chemical processing because of their ability to handle corrosive liquids, chemical vapors, and other hazardous materials. They must be reliable and safe to prevent chemical spills and other accidents. Manufactured with an integral liner of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UPE liner), chemical hoses are a popular choice because they offer a number of advantages.

But where and how are these types of chemical hoses used and what are the benefits of using them? Read on for the answers in this mini guide. We also take a closer look at Alfotech's Manipharm C/SD-UPE hose - a best-in-class chemical hose with built-in UPE liner.

Where are chemical hoses with UPE-liners used and what for?

Chemical hoses with UPE liners are often used in industrial applications involving the handling of large quantities of corrosive chemicals such as hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, sulphuric acid, and hydrofluoric acid. These types of hoses are also ideal for use in applications where maximum flexibility is required, for example in the transport of cosmetics, food or pharmaceuticals.

What are the benefits of the UPE-liner?

The main advantage of using a chemical hose with a UPE liner is its durability and flexibility. As a material, UPE is highly resistant to wear, corrosion, and temperature fluctuations, making it ideal for use in extreme conditions. In addition, the UPE liner provides remarkable protection against diffusion and leakage, while providing excellent tensile strength. For that reason, this chemical hose lasts longer than other types when exposed to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures.
