Wire Reinforced Silicone Tubing Features and Applications

Posted: Monday, 22 April 2013 by Franklin Borsman in

Wire Reinforced Silicone Tubing offers enhanced flexibility and high pressures that do not collapse even under vacuum. Its wire inner helix lets the hose bent without any fear of blocking and kinking airflow.

The wire reinforced silicone tubing is designed of several reinforcement and 316L SS helical wire offering supreme flexibility while maintaining high pressure ratings with complete capabilities of the vacuum. Generally, it is manufactured with an ultra-pure biopharmaceutical-grade silicone ensuring the process integrity.


  • High-pressure and vacuum rating
  • Biopharmaceutical grade
  • European Pharmacopoeia 3.1.9 FDA and ISO criteria
  • Meets all USP Class VI
  • Unsurpassed inner surface smoothness 
  • Ultra-flexible bend radius
  • Custom color-coding available
  • Available in 25-foot standard lengths
  • Imparts no taste or odor
  • Temperature range from -80°F (-62°C) to 500°F (260°C)
  • Autoclavable and sterilizable

  • Adapter connections
  • Radially crimped 316L SS or non-metallic fittings
  • Sanitary, non-metallic fittings

Typical Applications:

  • Production fermentation
  • Biopharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Bioreactor process lines
  • Bulk transfer
  • Pharmaceutical processing and production
  • Load cell
  • Vacuum pump applications

The tube is designed for endurance and high performance in custom coolant plumbing applications. It has silicone rubber with 3-ply reinforcement which makes it flexible and reliable temperatures from -50°C to +200°C. Moreover, a spiral cut and spiral wire reinforcement in its outer layer is designed in such a way that makes it resistant enough to collapse and bend tightly than the standard SHL hose. Whenever you come across any Wire Reinforced Silicone Tubing, ensure that you go through its different collections and pick the suitable one.
