Festo’s PTFEN tubing delivers high pressure, heat, corrosion and hydrolysis resistance.

Festo released its FDA-compliant PTFEN tubing designed for food and other processing applications. Made of polytetrafluorethylene, the tubing is TSE-free, resistant to cleaning agent and not affected by ambient atmospheric conditions. Microbes and other active agents and contaminants don’t stick to polytetrafluorethylene, making PTFEN tubing easier to clean and ideal not only for food production but also for manufacturing in the chemical, semiconductor, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. PTFEN tubing is rated for up to 6 bar at 130ºC for pressure resistance, or 150ºC for heat resistance. It’s offered in seven different outside diameters, ranging from 4 to 16mm. More than 200 nickel-plated brass and stainless steel fittings are available.
