PureHose PF - medical gas hose

PureHose Pf - Plasticiser Free Anti Static PU Medical Gas Hose

For many years the standard construction of hoses for medical gas applications was plasticized PVC with a conductive inner layer. The conductivity was incorporated due to the explosive nature of some of the anaesthetic gasses being used when the product was initially developed. Things have now evolved, modern anaesthetic gasses are now virtually inert therefore the risk of explosion has been considerably reduced. This, coupled with a growing concern over the potential vaporisation and subsequent inhalation of phthalates, has resulted in the development of PureHose Pf, a new non-phthalate & PVC free hose. If you are looking for a product that fulfils all the current and future requirements for medical gas hoses, PureHose Pf is that product.
