Electrically conductive fuel lines have been used for quite some time as OE equipment in the automotive sector. Now this application - not least because of appropriate regulations in the US - is becoming increasingly attractive for industrial trucks. The conductive inner lining made of FPM (fluorocarbon rubber) prevents static buildup at high throughflow rates which, in the worst-case scenario, could result in sparking and spontaneous ignition of the vehicle.
ContiTech Fluid Technology's highly flexible fuel lines are suitable for gasoline, diesel and biodiesel and can withstand operating temperatures from -40 to +150°C. The outer lining is resistant to radiant heat up to 150°C, and briefly even 175°C.
