In addition to being used to make pipes, PFA pipe material has many other applications as a special material, particularly cold-resistant PFA. In fact, it has the same application field as PTFE, but it can form products with more complex shapes than PTFE.
Aside from the well-known PFA tube, another common one is the PFA heating wire. The conductor is a resistance wire wound outside the tube that can heat up when energized. PFA heating wire is better suited for short-distance pipe heating, while long-distance pipe heating consumes a lot of energy due to voltage drop.
In general, PFA plastic pipe outperforms other products because it retains PFA’s excellent chemical stability, mechanical properties, electrical insulation, self-lubrication, non-stickiness, non-flammability, and aging resistance, among other benefits.
Furthermore, PFA plastic pipes have good high temperature stability, softness, resistance to cracking, and crack resistance. They can be used in a variety of situations, produce good results, and help to extend the service life of the pipe.
When comparing the PFA plastic pipe to the metal pipe, it is discovered that the PFA plastic pipe has a significant energy saving effect. Based on PFA plastic pipe production per cubic meter and steel and aluminum production per cubic meter, the energy consumption of steel is 316KJ/m3, and the energy consumption of aluminum is 316KJ/m3. The energy consumption is 619KJ/m3, while the pfa plastic pipe consumes 70KJ/m3.
