Over the past 49 years, Festo South Africa has earned their reputation for providing cleverly designed components. Continuing with their groundbreaking absolute Automation 2.0 campaign that focuses on their Pneumatic Automation solutions, they created an analogy between their tubing and bronchioles located in human body. In anatomy, bronchioles carry air into the lungs. This is the same with the Festo bestselling Transparent PUN-H-T Tubing that conveys pressurised media to actuators, valves, tools and other components.
The combination of their PUN-H-T and their range of fittings guarantees the effective flow of media from one point to another. They ensure the optimal, trouble-free operation of your systems and are resistant to hydrolysis. Coming in six different colours, their tubing and fitting can be used in environments with high moisture levels and in numerous standard applications in the food industry and more.
Short installation time thanks to proven plug and work
Connecting and releasing are made simple by the push-in fittings QS in the standard Festo quality with the proven sealing and release principle. Not only is the kink-resistant PUN-H-T easy to install, its resistance to hydrolysis protects it from cracking even when in contact with water up to 50°C. In addition, the black version is UV-resistant and can thus be used outdoors.
Benefits for your systems
The transparent versions make it easy to detect particles, moisture and oil in the tubing. This provides an easy and effective way of monitoring the condition of any potential risks to your system. Further to this, their benefits include food-grade approved: FDA listed material and resistance to microbes. In addition to their PUN-H-T tubing, the company recently introduced their latest Tubing PUN-H-F.
New food-compliant tubing and fitting combination from Festo
The new food-compliant Tubing PUN-H-F meets the standards for use in the food industry. Its high level of resistance to most media, chemicals and extreme corrosion make it stand out. Together with the fittings NPQR, it can thus be easily used in the food and packaging industry, particularly in places where it might come into contact with food. The kink-resistant tubing is also resistant to hydrolysis and microbes, making it ideal for high moisture environments or water at temperatures up to 60 °C. Their black version is especially UV-resistant and thus also suitable for use outside enclosed buildings. The "natural" colour variant of the PUN-H-F is suitable for applications with gaseous oxygen as the operating medium.
Easy to handle
A large number of variants, threads and tubing sizes make it suitable for different applications. Leaks are prevented by a chambered O-ring that is securely held in place. The food-compliant design reduces edges where dirt could collect. This makes the push-in fitting very easy to clean and assemble.
