FR5 SERIES Capillary Hose - Class 1
ZEC's Freon FR5 thermoplastic hoses are used in refrigeration systems, both in fixed systems and in the automotive industry 1. Intense research in innovative materials led to the development of a product able to substitute traditional copper pipes, offering the advantage of flexibility and ease of assembly, while ensuring excellent resistance and low permeability to refrigerant gases (including CO2).
1) Service stations for refrigerant gas recharging and for A/C systems maintenance.
The inner core is made of elastomeric polyamide. The reinforcement braid made of high tenacity polyester yarn (PET) and the pinpricked antiabrasion polyurethane (PU) cover give the hose high resistance both to pressure and to surface abrasion.
The FR5 series hoses have been developped for the passage of a wide range of refrigerants (HFC, HFO and naturals) and are compatible with the major lubricants used in refrigeration industry (PAG, POE, AB, PVE).
