Hoses Materials

The PT series is designed to make hose changes quick and easy with no technical knowledge required.
We only work with high quality compounded rubbers, reinforced with 2 to 6 individual layers of braided polyamide and with an outer layer made to strict tolerances to ensure perfect compression. The characteristics of Tapflo hoses enable them to last approximately 30% longer than other hoses on the market. They also fit the majority of other hose pumps.

For the hose inner layers, 8 materials are available to suit the diversity of the pumped fluids.


Without reinforcing: Norprene®; Tygoprene, Silicone
Reinforcing food hoses: NR FDA ; NBR FDA ; EPDM FDA
With polyamide reinforcing: Natural rubber (NR) ; NBR ; EPDM

Tapflo can offer food grade hoses in EPDM FDA, NBR FDA and NR FDA and meet the certifications EC 1935/2004 and FDA CFR21§177.2600.

The internal of the hose is white (NR FDA and EPDM FDA) or black (NBR FDA), according to the pumped fluid.
