RNT Braid Pressure Tube

For applications demanding both flexibility and strength, Excelon RNT Braid Pressure Tube fits the bill. This specially designed braided PVC hose is made with a layer of mesh polyester between two layers of clear PVC, providing reinforcement without sacrificing flexibility, or visibility of the substance flowing through it. It does not affect the taste or smell of the substance, and it is made of FDA-approved material, making it particularly suitable for food, dairy, beverage, fragrance, and other applications in which these features are important.

Other features of Excelon RNT Braid Pressure Tube include :

  • Nontoxic
  • Can handle 4x the pressure of a non-reinforced plastic tube
  • Meets 3-A and NSF criteria for food and beverage contact, as well as FDA
  • Inner bore is smooth to avoid trapping particles
  • Offers alternative to rigid piping
  • Unaffected by oxidizing and reducing agents
