Reinforced silicone hose allows high purity fluid flow without the worry of kinking or crushing. Called APSW, the hose is made from a liner of low-volatile grade, platinum-cured silicone that is fabric-wrapped and wire-reinforced for durability in food applications. The polyester mesh fabric wrapping adds strength to the silicone material, and the spiraled 316 stainless steel reinforcing wire enables the finished hose to resist crushing, kinking and, ultimately, flow restriction. An outer layer of silicone is added and the hose is cured, resulting in a product that works equally well in pressure or full vacuum (29.9 in. Hg) applications.The silicone is certified by the NSF for use with food equipment materials (NSF-51).
