Saint-Gobain Teflon Inner-Core Hose Assemblies and PFA Tubing  


Two new product brochures from Saint Gobain for Life Science Applications:

Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP High Purity Hose

Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP hose is constructed with multiple layers of reinforced Sani-Tech® Ultra platinum-cured silicone, 316L stainless steel helical wire reinforcement and a PharmaFluor® FEP liner. The FEP liner is fully bonded to the silicone hose utilizing patented bonding technology, providing a high purity fluid path. The smooth inner bore surface ensures both optimal flow and ease of cleaning and sanitization. Light weight and exceptional flexibility make this hose extremely user-friendly. Characteristics: PharmaFluor® FEP liner maintains fluid integrity and low binding characteristics, low TOCs, extractables and leachables. The body and jacket of the hose are constructed with Sani-Tech® Ultra platinum-cured silicone. Sani-Tech® Ultra formulations are manufactured in a certified clean room from the finest grade of silicone materials. Biocompatibility: Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP hose is constructed utilizing 100% USP Class VI compliant materials to provide further security and minimize the risk of contamination. These materials are fully characterized, documented and certified per USP , USP , EP 3.1.9, ISO 10993, FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 and FDA 21 CFR 177.1550.

Versilon WCS Stainless Braided PTFE Convoluted Teflon Hose

WCS is an amazingly flexible Teflon hose constructed from a flexible helically convoluted Teflon inner tube then braided with high tensile stainless steel braid. There are four versions of this hose: WCS with a white FDA PTFE tube, BCS with a black static dissipating PTFE tube and then both are available with a silicone sleeve over the stainless steel braid: WCSS and BCSS. WCS/BCS can be cleaned with steam, caustics, and solvents. 

Approvals: FDA (WCS) Pharmacopeia Class VI Complies with Mil_H_27267 (BCS)

Applications: Chemical transfer, CIP and SIP applications, auto clave, transfer lines, process lines. Temperature Range: -65⁰F to 450⁰F continuous service Construction: Inner tube: PTFE helically convoluted Cover: high tensile stainless steel braid   Fittings: All stainless steel and flare thru offerings including sanitary clamp, bevel and I-Line style, flanges, cam locks, male pipe thread, female JIC swivels. 


Saint Gobain Teflon Hose Assemblies from Tri-Canada: Superb Quality • Proven Performance • Responsive Service 

Tri-Canada's product line of stainless steel braided Teflon-lined hoses from Saint Gobain have the following specifications:



Our Chemfluor® fluoropolymer extruded tubing -- the foundation of all our hose products -- sets the industry standard for chemical and corrosion resistance, ease of use, and compliance with all key industry standards.  

Smooth Inner Bore

Our S.I.B. (Smooth Inner Bore) technology provides a totally seamless transition between hose and fitting, virtually eliminating the problems caused by particle entrapment in standard barb assemblies and simplifying maintenance.  

Flare-Thru Design

Our unique Flare-Thru fitting design ensures that the material being conveyed contacts only pure, non-contaminating Chemfluor® fluoropolymer tubing from end to end.

Use of Versilon™ TLCTCO Hose in filling machine applications:

A major cosmetic manufacturer was experiencing repeated failures of supply hoses used to transfer lotion to containers being filled in a rotary filling machine operation. The plastic reinforced tubing being used along with maintenance shop assembly produced hose “assemblies” constantly leaked at the fitting to hose connection due to “worm gear clamp” assembly practices. The use of Versilon™ TLCTCO hose assemblies with crimped sanitary end connections eliminated leaks, reduced the stress on the filling head mechanism and allowed CIP procedures to be implemented reducing set up time for product line change over. TLCTCO’s bend radius is approximately 20-25% less than conventional rubber covered fluoropolymer line hose assemblies with force to bend values featuring the same 20-25% reduction. This product feature may allow an application to use a short hose which is especially useful in restricted space applications commonly encountered in filling machine applications.
