« BackNews: Hygiene Matters - Metalflex

Aug 8th 2016

Here at Metalflex we are aware that hygiene is of the utmost importance, especially in companies within both the food and pharmaceutical industries.
Our Ultraline Smoothbore assemblies are just the thing:

Ultraline is our range of high quality PTFE flexible hoses. PTFE is a great choice in situations like this because not only is it extremely chemically resistant but it’s famous non-stick nature allows material to pass through the assemblies without becoming ’hung up’ reducing the risk of contamination.

Why Ultraline Smoothbore?

Out of this range our Smoothbore and Metline hoses are without a doubt the most suitable in situations regarding hygiene. The smooth inner of both hoses allows for vastly improved flow characteristics and removes the possibility of ’bug traps’ caused by the internal convolutions of other PTFE options. Smooth inners also allow easier cleaning of the hoses without the risk of cleaning materials remaining inside the assemblies.

Why Ultraline Metline?

Our Ultraline Metline PTFE hoses have  all the perks of the Smoothbore assemblies with the added bonus of a convoluted outer vastly improving flexibility and kink resistance.

Completing The Hose

Hygienic 316 stainless steel fittings can be used to complete the assemblies and tafted ends are also available upon request to complete the hygiene factor and completely remove the possibility of ’bug traps’ where the fittings connect.

Ultraline Smoothbore and Metline PTFE assemblies are available with a choice of braids, external protection and end fittings. Each hose assembly is also supplied with an identification ring, unless requested otherwise, allowing full traceability.
