Pneumatic Tubing

  • 1polyurethanetubing

The basic functionality of pneumatic tubing consists of dispensing pressurized, compressed air to valves, actuators, or other pneumatic components. Thermoplastics provide the chemical resistance and flexibility needed for pneumatic tubing. Common pneumatic tubing materials include polyurethane, nylon, polyethylene, and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
Tubing sizes will depend on your application requirements. Air systems and applications will have different flow requirements and tube sizes from fluid handling systems. OD and wall thickness specifications can help you determine the best type of pneumatic tubing for your application. The wrong tubing size can result in unwanted inefficiencies and shortened tubing lifespan.

Pneumatic Tubing Material Options

Selecting the right pneumatic tubing material often depends on your application requirements. OD tolerances, push-to-connect fittings, kink, and pressure-resistance are all important factors to consider when choosing which type of pneumatic tubing is best suited for your needs.

Pneumatic Polyurethane Tubing

Our Fre-Thane® polyurethane pneumatic tubing is offered in a variety of colors, sizes, and hardness values. PUR pneumatic tubing offers excellent flexibility and resists damages that can cause leaks. Additional features include kink and abrasion-resistance, with low gas permeability. Common uses include tubing for air tools, fuel lines, and fluid circuitry.

Pneumatic Nylon Tubing

Ideal for applications that require pneumatic tubing that can withstand higher temperatures and pressures. Our nylon pneumatic tubing offers chemical, corrosion, and stress-cracking resistance. We can also produce custom nylon pneumatic tubing, specifically manufactured for your application requirements. Application uses include HVAC system lines and compressed air line applications.

Pneumatic Polyethylene Tubing

Also known as poly or PE tubing. Flexible, lightweight, and durable, polyethylene pneumatic tubing is impermeable to gas and moisture. Its puncture and cracking resistance make it an ideal choice for fluid-handling applications. PE pneumatic tubing works well for fluid handling applications across industries such as medical, beverage, agriculture, and more.

Pneumatic PVC Tubing

Lightweight and with exceptional flexibility, our PVC pneumatic tubing resists chemicals, oxidation, and contamination. Custom colors and custom sizes available upon request. This high-performance pneumatic tubing is chemically compatible with most fuels, gases, oils, and low-grade acids. PVC tubing is suitable for a wide variety of pneumatic applications.
