Fluorocarbon Hose Ltd. manufactures a wide range of hoses for hydrogen/water-cooled turbine generators. The stator winding circuits are directly cooled by de-ionized water which is supplied from a distribution header via flexible PTFE hoses.
Generator hose assemblies typically comprise unbraided thick-wall PTFE tubing with stainless steel or phosphor bronze fittings swaged on each end. The PTFE hose is formed into specific shapes to fit the generator.
More features include: smooth bore PTFE tubing, providing low resistance to flow; available in virgin and black pigmented PTFE; minimum design life of 25 years; PTFE processed for maximum flex life; bespoke hoses manufactured to customer specification; standard and custom fittings available in non-magnetic stainless steel and phosphor bronze; available in lengths up to 6m.
