BRAIDED HOSE – JIC – 3/8in. FJIC – 12in.
These are 12" long PTFE bored hoses with a 304 stainless steel cover which also acts as the reinforcement. They can be used in short lengths for a variety of fluid, hydraulic, air compressor, or gas applications where temperature, purity, or corrosion resistance are of prime concern, such as on short, low pressure steam lines (not for steam/cold water cycling), food grade beverage transfer lines (meets FDA 21 CFR 177.1550) or chemical lines. Since the reinforcement is exposed and also acts as a cover, it is NOT designed for abusive or rugged environments - nor is it designed for long continuous pipe-runs or radiant heating systems. Due to the rigid nature of PTFE tubing, special attention must be taken to prevent this hose from kinking or exceeding its bend radius.
