TS/TSS FEP Line Stainless Steel Braided Hose


With a greater wall thickness of Chemfluor® PTFE tube, up to 33% thicker than most competing products, Flexible Component TS family of hoses is the premium stainless steel braided FEP lined hose on the market today. Its heavier FEP tube wall gives it superior kink resistance, improved vacuum ratings and better damage resistance. The TSS version of the hose has a smooth platinum cured silicone cover over the braid.

Product Features:

  • Pure platinum-cured silicone outer cover extruded over TS Series hose
  • Permits easy cleaning
  • Ultra-smooth outer cover ensures no particle entrapment in stainless steel braids
  • Reduces braid fraying
  • Helps insulate exterior from “burn” potential
  • Single crimp collar locks in hose barb and seals off silicone cover, eliminates bulky secondary ring
  • Extruded cover is “locked” onto stainless steel braid, will not move when handled
  • Can be autoclaved
