Fluoropolymer Tubing Increases Life of Heat Exchangers


Parker-TexLoc Fluoropolymer FEP and PFA tubing can be formed and welded into heat exchanger transport lines that offer a non-stick, bacteria free transport of deionized water and other corrosive media.  Unlike steel, which is susceptible to corrosion and bacteria build up, fluoropolymer tubing, with its >0.01% moisture absorption, withstands almost any harsh chemicals, except those with fluorine and alkali metals.  Based on these properties, corrosion and contaminants will not damage Fluoropolymer tubing and the result is a leak free, low maintenance alternative to metallic tubing.  

In addition to corrosion resistance, fluoropolymer tubing operates in temperatures up to 500°F/260°C and has the lowest coefficient of friction of any tube available, thus reducing downtime for cleaning and routine maintenance.  This reduced downtime can be a considerable savings and coupled with the increased life, offers refineries a cost effective alternative to traditional steel tubing.    

Parker-TexLoc can provide additional services for our products, including tube coiling and forming to meet your specifications.  Additionally, we can perform etching on the either inside diameter, outside diameter, or both and the etching process is available on most product lines.  Our product sizes range from 1/8” up to 4” I.D.
