Retractable Coils Increase Heat Exchanger Life


Parker TexLoc fluoroplastic coiled tubing is a spiral formed tube  manufactured in TEXfluor®  FEP or PFA that consists of a single or double retractable coil  in a single tube.   In heat exchanger transport lines, Fluoropolymer retractable coils offer a non-stick, bacteria free transport of de-ionized 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 coiled tubing and the result is a leak free, low maintenance alternative to metallic tubing. 

In addition to corrosion resistance, Parker TexLoc coils operate in temperatures up to 500°F/260°C and have 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 a cost effective alternative to traditional steel tubing.

Product sizes range from 1/8” up to 3/4” I.D. with lengths up to 4 feet compressed (12 feet expanded).
