Production Techniques Ltd


With three types of connection on all our PTFE fittings, we are able to suit virtually all applications.

Chemcon Standard (STD)

For laboratory/indoor use, at pressures up to 7 barg (100 psig).

Chemcon Industrial (IND)

A threaded ferrule is used to make a mechanical joint for industrial/outdoor use, at pressures up to 27.5 barg (400 psig).

Chemcon Glassware (SIL)


A viton seal is added to improve sealing on gas/vacuum systems, at pressures up to 13 barg (200 psig) or high vacuum.

Tubes and Hoses

Our wide range of tubes and hoses enables us to supply the correct one for a large number of applications:

  • Plain tubing for use with compression fittings.
  • Flexible convoluted tubing with end terminations to suit either compression fittings or for barbed fittings.
  • Braided and wire reinforced convoluted hoses with a comprehensive range of end connections, which can be used as a direct replacement for stainless steel corrugated hoses in difficult applications.
