I cannot say for certain so take my advice with a grain of salt, but if you cannot use PTFE, than HDPE is almost as good. Very few chemicals I have ever used have ever interacted with it and if you need something unreactive, HDPE is a pretty safe bet on top of being abundantly available. PET, although very transparent, is very hit and miss when it comes to ...

Check if you may skip using elemental bromine as starting material altogether. An alternative approach may be running the bromination in a heterogenic, biphasic setup with the couple $\ce{NaBrO3/NaHSO3}$ in water (e.g., 1998JOrgChem6023, 2000OrgProcRes Dev.30), or $\ce{NaBr}$ / sodium perborate (e.g., 1998SynthCommun925), or pyridinium tribomide (e.g.,...

The only case I know of where activated carbon causes reduction at room temperature would be filtration of ozone, $\ce{O3}$. Even fluorine will not oxidize plain carbon: Carbon is stable in a fluorine atmosphere up to about $\pu{400 ^\circ C}$ . Oh, well perhaps dioxygen difluoride, $\ce{FOOF}$, could also oxidize carbon (or could be reduced by carbon, ...

In short: Do not attempt a direct connection of the PFTE hose with the glass. Instead (assuming the tubing shall transfer gases with little pressure only): Because to the (compared to silicon) lesser flexibility of the tubings made from PFTE, you should consider to use glassware with threaded joints with detachable connectors. This a theme already seen with ...
