What are the Benefits of Reinforced PVC Hose?

What are the benefits of Nylon tubing
Reinforced PVC hoses are strong, multi-purpose, and durable braided hoses which are specifically designed to transport both pressurised and unpressurised:
  • Liquids
  • Chemicals
  • Gases
The fact that it is specially designed to transport these substances, therefore, makes it a popular solution for food and drink distribution. Reinforced PVC hose, ideal for conveying air and liquids, makes this type of tubing highly flexible, with a minimum toxicity level, and has been specially designed to withstand high pressure and deliver excellent flow rates. Consequently, PVC tubing meets food and drink safety regulations and is approved to deliver consumables. Reinforced PVC tubing is generally constructed from reinforced three-ply minimum toxicity reinforced PVC. This material makes it an abrasion and chemical-resistant type of hose that doesn’t compromise on flexibility and has excellent flow rates or reliability when at high working pressures. It also complies with certified standards for use with food and drink, allowing users to rest assured that no unwanted odours or flavours will be imparted to your products. Just some of the potential applications of reinforced PVC tubing include:
  • Brewing
  • Food handling
  • Beverage lines
  • Compressed air & gas
  • Chemical transfer
  • Water & fluid lines
We can manufacture this range of hoses in a high-specification material specified by the UK brewing industry.

The main benefits include:

Chemical & abrasion resistant Due to the reinforced properties of this type of tubing, it is ideal for applications requiring a tube that resists both abrasive surfaces and contact with chemical substances. Highly flexible The rubber-like flexibility of PVC gives PVC tubing and hoses reliable flexibility, strength and durability even under changing temperatures and conditions. It can even be used at low temperatures approaching -45°C while maintaining strength and pliancy. Reliable at high working pressure Reinforced PVC tubing has great pressure resistance and can be manufactured in flexible and semi-rigid materials depending on your bespoke needs. Suitable for food and drink distribution due to PVC being a minimum toxicity substance The minimum toxicity PVC material meets food and drink safety regulations and is compliant to:
  1. REACH – Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals
  2. RoHS – Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive
  3. BSI ISO 9001
The fact that PVC hose complies with the above makes it ideally suited for use in various industries and applications, including brewing, food handling, chemical transfer and fluid lines. REACH, RoHS and BSI ISO 9001 compliant Due to this type of tubing being REACH, RoHS and ISO compliant, it addresses the production and use of chemical substances and their impacts on health and the environment. Reinforced durability This material is ideal in helping to prevent our tubing from being damaged and causing the inner contents to leak and flow outside of the tubing due to exterior damage.
