It’s not only plastic that leads the way in custom manufacturing tubing, nylon is just as useful and resilient.
Recognized for its tensile strength, and selected for its stability, nylon tubing has maneuvered its way into applications ranging from uses to transport vapor or liquid, for air and brake lines, or any other situation that requires flexibility and the ability to withstand repeated stresses over a long duration without negative effects.
Phew! That’s a lot to ask from nylon tubes. But regardless, the fact remains that utilizing nylon tubes in situations that will put increasing amounts of abrasion and friction on it is critical to ensure it meets the requirements of the task.
For instance, ideal for use on cooling systems, pneumatic controls, hydraulic lines and grease lines, nylon tubes-12 is less expensive to manufacture than nylon tube-11 and is perfectly suited for these numerous industrial applications.
Customers who need Nylon tube-12 specify its use when they need to prevent vapor permeation, whether the nylon tubing is delivering fuel, or any other chemical liquid. This ensures that the equipment on which it is being utilized doesn’t experience failure or compromise safety.
But customers also have the option of manufacturing nylon tube-11 which is better suited for use in the food industry as it is made from materials that comply with FDA regulations.
Although this type of nylon tube is suited for other industries, such as for chemical companies, making the choice to use nylon tube-11 in use with transferring fluids whether alimentary liquids such as milk, beer or biological such as serum or blood, nylon tubes are a prime alternative to plastic.
