New FDA-compliant Festo PTFEN tubing tackles roughest jobs in food and other processing applications

DCS Festo PTFEN tubing 400

February 4, 2019

Festo’s newest line of FDA-compliant pneumatic tubing – PTFEN – delivers excellent high pressure, heat, corrosion and hydrolysis resistance required for harsh operating environments in many   process industries. Made of polytetrafluorethylene, this extremely robust   tubing is TSE-free, resistant to cleaning agent and not affected by   challenging 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.

Depending on the recommended Festo fitting with which it is paired, 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 16 mm. With more than 200 nickel-plated brass and stainless steel fittings   available, Festo will recommend the ideal combination for each application.
