BraidFlex™ 70N

Product Features

The BraidFLEX™ 70N tubing line is very similar to our ClearFLEX™ 70NP tubing line, but with the added inner polyester braid it can withstand much higher pressure applications. It maintains a clear color and flexible nature to allow for easy installation like all of our other ClearFLEX™ tubing lines along with visual flow monitoring.

  • Embedded braid prevents material entrapment, ensures easy cleaning
  • Easy to bend into place
  • Flexible; permits tight clamping for leakproof connections
  • Maximum working pressure clearly printed on tubing
  • Clear tubing allows full visual flow monitoring
