Fluorotherm News

  • To the Research Community,

    Here at Fluorotherm, we always look to our roots for inspiration. Our founders were small time researchers themselves, and know that it is sometimes difficult to procure the materials you need to complete your work and study.

    Of the topmost priority, small quantities and a limited budget take the cake, and we understand that. But some of the bigger suppliers definitely don't.

    We would like to know what it will take to make your research more effective. Will free shipping do it, or a continued discount on all orders, or even custom consulting?

    We would appreciate your feedback through this 10 minute survey. If instead you would just like to e-mail us some comments, feel free to do so at sacshu@fluorotherm.com

    We thank you in advance for your time.

  • New Immersion Coil Heat Exchangers

    Fluorotherm announces a new addition of PVDF frame Immersion Heat Exchanger coils to our family of Immersion coil products. This addition significantly broadens the performance range of our line of products, currently consisting of low temperature Polypropylene frame (to 150° F) and high temperature, premium PTFE frames. Of course, the standard tubing coils of the heat exchangers still consist of either FEP (to steam pressures of 2 bar / 30 psig) or PFA tubing (4 bar or 60 psig). Higher steam pressure tubing is also available with custom sized fluoropolymer heat exchanger tubing.

    PVDV frame heat exchangers, now in place for two years at selected customer sites are superior in performance to Polypropylene frames, in cases where the tank or bath temperatures exceed 150° F, and can operate up to temperatures of 210° F. PTFE frame temperatures are recommended for temperatures above 210° F.

    Increased Capacity of Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers

    Fluorotherm has successfully developed and installed multiple fluoropolymer coil shell and tube heat exchangers with significant increase in the heat transfer surface area from 12 sq.ft (1.1 sq.mt) to 55 sq.ft (5.1 sq.mt). Tubing is available in FEP, PFA, High Purity PFA and PTFE materials. Popular shell side materials are PVC and CPVC., although Stainless steel is also available for special high temperature shell side fluid applications.

    NEW PRODUCTS

    Fluorotherm introduces corrosion resistant load bearing metal rods; with complete encapsulation in PTFE tubing, FEP tubing or PFA tubing. These rods may be used to support work in a corrosive environment such as a plating or coating bath, as carrier to transport work in a chemically aggressive environment and in numerous other uses. The rigidity of the metal core provides strength that cannot be matched by plastic rods. A PTFE or other adapter of appropriate configuration over the encapsulated rod can be used as points of support. This encapsulated construction provides the strength of metal and the chemical resistance of fluoropolymer materials. Such construction can bear up to 700 lb loads in nitric, HF; hydrochloric and sulfuric acid baths and other hazardous atmospheres. The complete fluoropolymer encapsulation is distinctly superior to heat shrink tube covering where the wall thickness is too light to sustain reasonable loads or abrasive wear, without tearing or cracking. The high continuous use temperature of PTFE, FEP or PFA permits these materials to be used up to 400 deg F.

OCTOBER 2008 NEWSLETTER

Fluorotherm is now able to provide rapid turnaround times for a wide range of colored tubing in standard and custom sizes. For the range of industrial sizes commonly available, please see our listing under "Tubing Products". Tubing is available in PTFE, FEP, ETFE and PFA materials. The product is shipped as rolls (coils) or in spools, if required, for sizes under 1/2" OD. While PTFE tubing is supplied in production lengths due to the batchwise production process, other materials are available in long continuous lengths, as required by customer. Color bases and loading uniformity is carefully monitored so as not to detract from the inherent unique thermal resistance, chemical inertness and PTFE, FEP and PFA tubing properties. These properties are listed under "Detailed Properties" on our website homepage. RoHS certifications are supplied with colored tubing, as applicable.
