  • Benefits of PTFE Tubing

    PTFE tubing is a special formula of plastic tubing that has uses in many different industries. Industries like chemical processing, food and beverage production, medical research, printing, biotech, water treatment, and many others can benefit from the unique properties that PTFE tubing provides. PTFE tubes are a special kind of plastic formulated to prevent reactions with chemicals, withstand high temperatures, and resist stress cracks and pressure. PTFE tubes are perfect for tubing needs where other tube materials would break down and crack under the stress or become eaten away by...

  • Polyethylene Tubing is Well-Suited to Fluid Transmission

    Fluid transmission is an essential process in a variety of industrial contexts. For that reason, the importance of fluid transmission equipment to industry can't be understated. Because of the high importance of this equipment, industry has responded with a number of innovations to improve the fluid transfer process. In the context of tubing, which is one of the most important components in any fluid transfer system, there have been developed a wide variety of different tubing composition materials and configurations to respond to the varied needs of industry. Many different...

  • Exploring Polyethylene-lined EVA Tubing

    Polyethylene tubing has a higher level of inertness than many other forms of tubing, which makes it resistant to leeching and leaking. Because of the anti-leeching properties of the tubing, it is used in the food and beverage industry, chemical processing industry, and laboratory industries. In these industries, leaking materials could cause problems in the factory, as well as causing contamination in the polyurethane tubing itself. Urethane tubing is a highly flexible material that has uses varying from appliance drain tubes to pneumatic and signal lines used in instrumentation. Much...

Industry Information

Polyethylene Tubing

Polyethylene tubing products are hollow channels made of polyethylene plastic. Polyethylene is a durable, lightweight, flexible material that can be used for transporting liquids, gases and some granular or free-flowing solids between machinery, between supply trucks and storage containers and in many other applications. Polyethylene tubing, also known as poly tubing, is used in a very broad range of industrial, commercial and consumer products contexts.

Polyethylene is a versatile plastic and can be used to make tubing with walls as thin as soda bottles, or it can be used to make thick, break and crack-resistant tubing. It can be used in soda machines, municipal water systems, drainage systems, petrochemical processes and many more applications. The range of applications for which polyethylene tubing is used calls for an equally wide range of polyethylene varieties. The two main varieties are high and low-density polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE). High-density polyethylene is characterized by its thickness, strength and durability; it is used in the transportation of high-volumes of liquids or pressurized gasses. It is resistant to impact and can be corrosion-resistant. Low-density polyethylene is characterized by flexibility as opposed to HDPE’s rigidity. LDPE is more suitable in applications in which the tubing is moved frequently or is attached to equipment that is mobile.

Polyethylene, like all varieties of thermoplastics, can be fabricated through any one of several thermoforming processes. The most common method of plastic tubing fabrication is plastic extrusion. Plastic extrusion is the process by which a stock of raw plastic materials is melted, forced through a die and turned into a usable plastic product. The extrusion process begins with a collection of stock (raw plastic material) in a hopper suspended above a conveyance channel. The stock is directed into the conveyance channel, within which a long, turning screw pressurizes and moves the stock as it turns. As the stock progresses through the channel, the turning of the screw causes friction, which heats the stock. By the time it reaches the die, the combination of the friction and heat from electric heating elements along the channel causes the stock to melt. The die, which is a tool used for shape a raw material, is in the case of plastic tubing a large plate with a hole and pin; the molten stock is forced through the hole and emerges on the other side of the die as a newly extruded plastic tube. Once shaped, the new tubing is allowed to cool and harden. It is then cut to length and prepared for shipment or additional processing.
