EPDM Tubing Flex Fittings for Process Equipment


Food-Grade EPDM Tubing Flex Connectors Provide Superior Outdoor Weatherproof Benefits

EPDM Tubing Flex Fitting on Loss-in-Weight Feeder
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) tubing is exceptional for connecting two pieces of equipment in outdoor process applications. EPDM is a terpolymer of ethylene, propylene and a diene monomer, making these flex connectors resistant to oxygen, ozone, and sunlight. Our EPDM tubing flex flex fittings are excellent at handling acids, oxygenated solvents and wet or dry abrasive materials. This material is frequently used in process applications requiring outdoor exposure, as EPDM can withstand temperatures up to 300°F.  It is resistant to polar materials such as phosphate esters, many ketones and alcohol. This type of rubber is a cost-effective alternative to silicone, as it can last for long periods of time with proper use. As a result, EPDM can save you time and money depending on the needs of your application. However, it must be noted that its resistance to petroleum products is poor.

Features and Advantages

EPDM Benefits and Advantages


  • Resistance to UV exposure, ozone, aging, weathering, and many chemicals – great for outdoor applications
  • Stability in high and low temperatures – a general purpose EPDM material can be used in an environment where the temperature range is from -20⁰F to +300⁰F (-29⁰C to 149⁰C).
  • Low electrical conductivity
  • Steam and water resistant
  • Can be fabricated in a variety of ways, which includes custom molded and extruded parts
  • Long-term part lifespan allows for fewer replacement parts, saving money in the long run
