1/2" ID Reinforced PVC Tubing
1/2 inch Reinforced PVC tubing comprises of a layer of highly resistant polyester sandwiched between two flexible PVC layers.
1/2" Reinforced PVC Tubing
Reinforced PVC tubing 0500RPVC is our 1/2" dosing tube, which has an internal diameter of 12.5mm and an external diameter of 18mm. It is a multi-purpose hose, suitable for a range of applications, including connecting directly to a mechanical dosing pump, or for containment of other types of dosing tube.
The three layer design significantly improves upon the mechanical properties of PVC, with the reinforcement layer of resistant polyester fibre allowing the hosing to be used for pressurised applications.
Offering good chemical resistance, excellent mechanical properties and a low cost, the reinforced PVC tubing is suitable for both direct dosing applications and containment applications. We strongly recommend checking the compatibility of your chemical reagent with the PVC dosing tube, using our chemical compatibility checker.
1/2 inch Reinforced PVC tubing Dosing Tube Properties
|Internal Diameter||Outside Diameter||Tolerances||Weight||Burst Pressure||Temp. Range||Bend Diameter|
|12.5mm||18mm||±0.7 mm||160 g/m||40 Bar||-15°C to + 60°C||110mm|
Technical information for use as a guide only. Pressure values given are based on the short term burst pressure at 20°C. Any increase in temperature above 20°C will result in a decline in working pressure values. We strongly recommend you check our chemical compatibility database and speak to your chemical supplier, to ensure that all materials are compatible with the chemical to be dosed.
1/2" Reinforced PVC Tube Features & Benefits
1/2" Reinforced PVC dosing hose is a good general purpose hose, suitable for direct delivery applications, and for containment. It is available in continuous lengths, up to 50 metres, or cut to size.
The materials used in the reinforced PVC tubing provide it with flexibility, high transparency and a degree of UV protection. Reinforced PVC dosing hose is suitable for use in food & beverage applications and the 1/2" braided PVC tubing doesn't impart taste or odour into contents.

1/2" reinforced PVC tubing is a multipurpose hose suitable for a number of different applications. Commonly the 0500RPVC is used as a direct connection from one of our mechanical dosing pumps or as a containment medium for use with smaller diameter dosing tube.
The 1/2" reinforced PVC tubing is flexible, highly transparent and provides a degree of UV protection. The polyester fibre core provides greater mechanical strength significantly improving the operating pressure and mechanical strength of the PVC hose for use in industrial environments.
When used as direct connection from a mechanical dosing pump we strongly recommend that you check that 1/2 inch reinforced PVC tubing is compatible with your chemical reagent using our chemical compatibility database or with your chemical supplier and that all chemical dosing tube is protected from frost, direct sunlight and is installed inside a secondary pipe or hose to provide mechanical protection and containment.
Braided PVC Hose is suitable for use in the food & beverage sector and is available in a single continuous length up to 50 metres or cut to size.
1/2" Reinforced PVC tubing is manufactured with a resistant polyester core sandwiched between two layers of PVC to reinforce the dosing hose. This gives the 1/2 Inch PVC dosing hose a transparent appearance where the polyester reinforcement can clearly be seen.
The 1/2 braided PVC doing hose is stamped with:-
- Ø In
- Ø Out
- (EU) No 10/2011 Food & Drink approval
- Working Pressure [BAR]
- Batch Number
The PVC braided hose is suitable for use in the food & beverage sector and the polyester reinforcement core provides a degree of UV protection.
