Flexible Tubing of Viton® Rubber Stocked in Two Hardnesses Provides Exceptional Chemical Resistance, Even at Elevated Temperatures
BACK TO WHAT'S NEW PAGE
||Southampton, PA Now available from tubing manufacturer NewAge® Industries is a product made from 100% pure Viton, a high performance synthetic rubber. Called Vitube®, the tubing offers a wide range of both temperature and chemical resistance and is available in 60 and 75 Shore A durometers. Vitube is used in applications such as appliances, chemical transfer, hot lubrication feeds, o-rings and seals, fuel and oil lines, cable jacketing, exhaust lines, solvent transfer, and peristaltic pumps.
Vitube’s main attribute is its resistance to a wide range of chemicals at elevated temperatures. It will withstand 30°F to 400°F continuously and higher temperatures on an intermittent basis. Vitube is manufactured to handle chemicals such as aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons (carbon tetrachloride, benzene, toluene, and xylene), oils, fuels, lubricants, and mineral acids. Black in color, it works well outdoors in sunlight and ozone.
Vitube possesses the high resiliency of an elastomer as well as the good mechanical properties of conventional synthetic rubbers. The heat and chemical resistance factors, however, go far beyond the range of other rubbers. In fact, it offers one of the widest ranges of fluid and chemical resistance of any commercial rubber. Of the two hardnesses stocked, 60A, also known as Type B, is softer and designed for peristaltic pump use, while 75A (Type A) is used for most other applications.
NewAge Industries stocks Vitube in two dozen sizes from 1/32” through 7/8” I.D. Customization includes cut-to-length pieces, non-stock sizes, protective overbraiding, and other hardnesses. Barb style fittings, which are well-suited to Vitube, and a variety of clamps are also stocked for same-day shipment or JIT delivery.
