Burst Pressure

Burst Pressure values are theoretical values only, obtained by calculation. They are intended for guidance only.

The innate strength of Teflon Tubing and Teflon Resins makes them an excellent choice for  applications requiring high pressure and elevated temperatures. Outside factors such as altitude and steam pressure play a crucial role in the actual burst pressure.
