Frequently Asked Questions – PF Detect

Leak Detectable Dual Contained Chemical Dosing Hose


Q. What internal diameters are available in dual contained hose?

The ID of the product is 6mm – 50mm.

Common sizes are 12mm, 19mm, 25mm and 32mm


Q. What are the maximum lengths that can be utilised?

The product is supplied on drums of 450 – 500 metres but we have supplied lengths of up to 700 metres. Common lengths of 150, 200, 250 metres are readily available and each coil is tested for electric conductivity and certified before delivery.


Q. What chemicals can be transported through the product?

The product comes with various material inners such as PVC, LDPE and PTFE to cover resistance of most common chemicals used in dosing such as Sodium Hypochlorite, Ferric and Caustic. Full chemical details are always requested including concentrations to ensure that the product is fully fit for purpose. Full chemical resistance charts are available on request.


Q. Are Catch-pots needed when using PF-Detect?

No, using PF-Detect eliminates the need for Catch-pots because in the unlikely event of a leak an audible and visual alarm will be triggered. The system can also be wired into the main control PLC and made to shut off the pump immediately, thus dramatically reducing any impact on the environment due to leaking chemicals.


Q. Does the product comply with REACH legislation?

All products are now REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals) compliant.

Please visit www.hse.gov.uk/reach for more information.

Other standards include FDA and DIN but are dependent upon material and application.
