Corrugations allow a nearly zero bend radius - easily flexed
Can be extended or compressed without affecting
the tube's I.D.
Made without plasticizers which can leach into

Optimal flow is achieved and turbulence
minimized by passing fluids through CORRTEF in the
direction of the corrugation angles (as noted).
CORRTEF is heat sealable, and the cuffs
(straight ends) are made to accept standard barbed
fittings. The end may be flared or expanded to permit
CORRTEF is manufactured in an industrial atmosphere and should be properly sterilized for clean-flow applications. For optimal cleaning of CORRTEF the tube should be stretched to its maximum length and held vertically (direction of flow: down). NOTE: Due to the annular corrugations, it may not be possible to remove all traces of particulate from CORRTEF, even under optimal cleaning conditions.
^Overbraiding with Kevlar® will permit a minimum increase of 6X the listed pressures. Kevlar overbraiding is available for sizes up to 7/8" I.D. call for details.
Specify 'E' dimension at order time. Maximum overall available length: 12ft. (including cuffs). The minimum overall length for Corrtef with a cuff at each end is 6"; shorter overall lengths are possible when only one cuff is needed.
