Posted on by Sara Springer

If your manufacturing facility deals with steam transfer, Ace Sanitary’s Stainless Steel Braided PTFE steam hoses are your next worth while investment. These well made, highly durable hoses are easily installed and applicable to the food and beverage,  oil refineries, chemical plants, shipyards, tire manufacturing and pulp and paper industries.

Ace understands steam isn’t just steam, and the type of hose you require will directly depend on the type of steam you process. By offering specialized stainless steel hoses, Ace supplies its users with solutions for wet saturated steam, dry saturated steam, and superheated steam applications.

Why Stainless Steel? Stainless Steel Braided PTFE steam hoses can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees F and flexible metal hoses can take on temperatures up to 1500 degrees F.  Both types of hoses can handle higher pressure than the typical EPDM steam hoses.  High-quality PTFE steam hoses & fittings can keep your manufacturing processes running longer and lower your production cost while increasing output and profitability.  The construction and fabrication process of PTFE steam hose assemblies makes all the difference.

When it comes to durability, typical rubber steam hoses do a decent job of standing up to weather, ozone, and abrasion.  PTFE and flexible metal steam hoses are the best choices because of the construction.  These hoses have a stainless steel braid reinforcement which makes them durable.  The braid also protects the hose against tougher conditions and increases its lifespan.  Plus, they have better flexibility than rubber steam hoses, which allows for wide variety of applications.  With sanitary fittings, it is resistant to deposit build-ups and is non-absorbent.  Coupling with a fire sleeve or insulated wrap, the PTFE steam hose has added insulation and protects the operator.
