AMETEK introduces a new addition to its line of high quality fluoropolymer tubing. This new material is an ultrahigh-purity FEP resin. Designated UHP-FEP, the resin is designed primarily for ultrahigh-purity applications requiring very low levels of metal and other ion extractability. It offers the better value of FEP as compared to that of the PFA materials currently used. This extrusion grade resin is ideally suited for tubing, as the surface of the tubing is very smooth allowing no sites for contamination buildup. It is ideally suited for a variety of chemical transport applications both in the semi-conductor facility as well as in OEM equipment. It is available in a complete range of standard or custom sizes up to 2-inch diameter.
With its unique honeycomb capability, AMETEK can also produce heat exchangers utilizing this tubing. The resultant heat exchanger combines the unique corrosion resistant character of FEP but also deals with the heating or cooling of high purity chemicals.
For application of UHP-FEP to your process needs, contact your AMETEK Regional Manager or our technical staff at 1-800-441-7777 for a consultation.
