Achema 2012, After Show Report

At the Achema 2012 exhibition, Elaflex presented the current development stage of its new product line ELAPHARM®: hose assemblies to the DIN 26055-3 Standard.

The FDA-conform, smooth PTFE liner is homogeneously connected with the rest of the hose construction. The result is a superior combination of flexibility, kinking and pressure/vacuum resistance.

ELAPHARM will be offered as a electrically conductive full 'OHM' and as an electrically isolating 'I' version. Also when it comes to the crimped connection fittings there are several alternatives, among other a version free of dead spaces with beaded (flared out) liner. Elaflex effects the assembly in its own premises which will result in short lead times.

Samples for test installations are available on request. Serial production will start beginning of 2013.

Hot of the press, the new 44-page brochure 'Chemical & Pharma' is available now. Besides detailed information about ELAPHARM it gives an overview about all chemical/pharma industry related hose and fittings and is intended to assist guidance in the detailed Elaflex general catalogue.
