Food Grade Teflon Tubing (FEP)

Smooth bore Teflon FEP tubing is designed for a wide range of high-purity and corrosive-resistant applications where the following properties are desireable:

  • Temperature ranges from -275°F to 400°F
  • Low dielectric content
  • Low dissipation factor
  • High surface and volume resistivity
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Resistance to aging
  • Resistance to thermal and mechanical shock
  • Chemically inert
  • Non-contaminating
  • Non-soluble
  • Non-adhesive
  • Non-flammable

The nonstick characteristics of fluoropolymer resins, combined with their low extractable levels and chemically inert nature make fluoropolymer tubing ideal for the following applications:

  • Automotive
  • Electronics
  • Food and beverage
  • Medical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Chemical processing

Tubing Burst Pressure

An approximate value for bust pressure may be calculated using the following formulas.

NOTE: This formula is only valid for values of between 0°F and 500°F

PB = S (OD/ID - 1)
S = X - YT

Where:
PB = Burst pressure, psi
S = Material strength, psi
OD = Outer diameter of tubing, in.
ID = Inner diameter of tubing, in.
X = Material constant:
      X (FEP) = 1929
      X (PFA) = 2278
Y = Material constant:
      X (FEP) = 4.285
      X (PFA) = 3.77
T = Maximum temperature of the fluid in tubing, °F
