PF Tubing is widely used in the semiconductor, laboratory, environmental and pharmaceutical industries where ultrapure chemicals (including water) require precise quality control. Other areas of utilization are automotive, electrical and appliance markets.

PFA tubing can be used in general chemical application activities such as delivery of natural gas and mineral oils, toxic gas monitoring and paint, varnish or adhesive delivery lines.

FEP & PFA Burst Pressure Calculations
PTFE , PFA, and PEEK™ tubing improves purity in critical processes PTFE, PFA, FEP, PEEK™ offer biocompatibility and design flexibility

In the transfer of corrosive and ultra-pure liquids, PTFE, PFA and PEEK™ tubing have become the tubing material of choice. Chemical, pharmaceutical and semiconductor processors cannot risk the use of materials that could contribute impurities into process fluids.

In chemical processing systems, PTFE tubing is used throughout because of its inertness to almost all chemical including nitric, sulfuric, and phosphoric acids, even at high temperatures and high concentrations.

In pharmaceutical processing systems, PTFE and PFA are FDA-approved materialss offering inertness and high-purity properties.

Solvents, acids, photoresist and ultra-pure water are essential in the production of microeletronic devices. Even trace amounts of mon-volatile or ionic extractables measured in parts-per-billion can create unacceptable yield levels in semiconductor processing. PFA (perfluorokoxyalkane) tubing has emerged as the tubing material of choice in the semiconductor processing field because of its excellent chemical resistance and extremely low extractables. For the most demanding cleanliness applications, PFA-HG is gaining wide acceptance.

Where a rigid plastic fluid transfer tube is needed, more and more designers are specifying PEEK (polyetheretherketone) in their systems. For example, PEEK tubing is now replacing PFA tubing in the pumping of agents and chemicals from storage bottles. Because they are rigid and can reach the bottom of the bottle or tank, the processor is assured that they are using the entire chemical available to them.

In the transfer of sample fluids, PTFE, PFA and PEEK™ tubing have become the tubing material of choice. Processors cannot rick the use of materials that could contribute impurities into sample fluids.

PTFE and PFA meet the biocompatibility requirements for analytical systems, medical tools and drug-delivery equipment. They are pure, smooth, non-toxic, non-allergenic and compatible with human tissues and fluids. It is important to note, however, that PTFE and PFA are not approved for implantation. Biomedical applications require special attention to purity , smoothness, dimensions and cosmetics, which can be met by proper quality control during manufacturing.

Improved cleaning, non-contaminating and design-flexibility make PTFE and PFA ideal for pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment. PTFE and PFA are inert to nearly all fluids and prodice extremely low level of ion extractables. The smoother inner bore of PFA prevents entrapment of liquids in micro-pores and reduces purging times significantly.

PEEK polymer has successfully replaced glass, stainless steel and other metals in medical devices and bioanalytical systems. PEEK (polyetheretherketone) in their systems. For example, PEEK tubing is now replacing PFA tubing in the pumping of agents and chemicals from storage bottles. Because they are rigid and can reach the bottom of the bottle or tank, the processor is assured that they are using the entire chemical available to them.
