In a tightly regulated industry like biopharmaceuticals, plant operators can’t change parts on a whim. Fortunately, Swagelok U series PFA hose has all the necessary FDA compliance, and documentation comes with each hose certifying the materials of construction, and the pressure testing.
In addition to the hose itself, we offer a variety of labeling options on Swagelok hose. Choose from self-adhesive labels, matte tags that are color coded, or Perma Tags with up to five lines of information and protected by a silicone gel and sleeve. In the future we will offer RFID tagging as well.
Swagelok U series PFA hose also gives our customers economies of scale.The non-aging and chemical compatibility characteristics of the PFA combine with ultra-flexibility and outstanding kink resistance to provide superior reliability.
A leaking hose can shut down an entire operation. A customer with that kind of emergency needs a replacement now. A lot depends on the individual specifications and stock on hand, but in an emergency, we can usually have a 20-foot hose ready at our Fremont will call counter within about two hours.
Different hoses have different materials of construction that affect maximum length, but we have built some hoses up to 1,800 inches long. If a customer is willing to accept splices, there's virtually no length limit at all.
We help our customers quickly, and our products work. There really isn't much we can't do when it comes to hose.
