Kink-Resistant Hose Can Provide Longer Service Life In Rugged Applications

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics has introduced a high-performance solution for transferring bulk corrosive chemicals. The flexible and kink-resistant Chemfluro Convoflex WCSR multipurpose chemical transfer hose was designed to eliminate damage caused by corrosive chemicals, such as acids, to the stainless-steel braid commonly used as a cover on transfer hoses. 

Chemfluor  Convoflex WCSR is the newest addition to Saint-Gobain’s growing portfolio of critical connections solutions for chemical applications. These solutions were engineered to maintain safety during chemical processes, while reducing total systems cost. 

From solvents to bulk chemical transfer, Chemfluor  Convoflex WCSR can withstand highly aggressive chemicals during chemical processing. Its low-profile helical convoluted inner core design provides flexibility while maintaining the productivity of plant operations by preventing kinking, a common cause of downtime for such demanding applications. 

Chemfluor  Convoflex  WCSR features  a chemically resistant, high-purity Chemfluor PTFE inner core and is reinforced with 304 high tensile strength stainless-steel braids and an acid-resistant ethylene propylene diene monomer  outer-cover. The vulcanized EPDM outer cover protects the integrity of the hose when acid or other corrosive chemicals are accidentally exposed to the outer surface.
