Hannifin's Texfluor PTFE tubing is chemical and corrosive resistant and is
available in sizes .010 to 4 inch O.D.
PTFE, in many cases, is used to
replace glass, rubber and stainless steel because of its corrosion resistance. It
is extremely resistant to the most highly corrosive chemicals such as aqua
regina, hydrofluoric acid and hydrogen peroxide. Only molten alkali metals,
such as sodium or potassium, chlorine trifluoride and gaseous fluorine at
elevated temperatures and pressures will attack PTFE chemically. In addition,
there is no solution that will swell or dissolve PTFE at temperatures below
300C/570F. Only at temperatures above 327C/620F, PTFE's crystalline melting
point, will some fluorinated lubricating oils swell PTFE.
Texfluor PTFE tubing is odorless, tasteless, non-wetting and non-leaching. Other
advantages are PTFE's ease in cleaning, anti-stick properties, resistance to
extreme heat and cold and resistance to ultra violet rays. Vibration damping
properties of PTFE are also useful in both sonic and ultrasonic frequencies.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
If you’re developing an embedded monitoring and control application, then you’ll want to take note of the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Embedded Development Using Microchip Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler."
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
