Our Flex-Tubes are made of braided strands of polyester for the polyester tubes, and braided strands of stainless steel for the stainless steel tubes. This construction gives the FLEX-TUBE its amazing flexibility and durability. It is also the reason for the high flow rate of all Filters using our Flex-tubes! The minute openings between the wire strands permit solvent to flow through readily but prevent the passage of diatomite and entrapped dirt. Tubes never become clogged! Each flex-tube has an internal stainless steel spring.
