The "PE Flex Translucent" material transfer hoses are a medium weight hose recommended for light bulk material handling applications. The clear hose material is constructed using translucent medium strength polyethylene. The flex duct wall has been reinforced with a translucent integral polyethylene helix, designed for moving dust and other light materials. The translucent flex duct walls are crush resistant and make it easy to monitor material flowing through the inside. The translucent coloration also makes finding clogs and blockages easy. The hose material is manufactured with FDA acceptable food grade materials.
Polyethylene is a preferred plastic that is used throughout the food packaging industry for its purity and non-toxic properties. It has a very simple molecular structure that does not require chemical additives (as opposed to vinyl/PVC and polyurethane material transfer hoses). The convoluted interior of this extraction ducting product creates efficient airflow that helps to aerate insulation materials. Material transfer hoses with this feature can increase machine efficiency with regard to coverage and density. The hose material is easy to handle and remains extremely flexible when used in both hot and cold working conditions.
This extraction ducting hose is available in a wide range of internal diameters including, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 and 4 inches. Internal diameter tolerances vary depending on the size of the hose; for 1.5, 2, and 2.5 Inch: -0.00 to +0.025 Inch and for 3, 3.5, and 4 Inches -0.00 to +0.036 Inches. This hose comes with standard plain cut ends and is sold 25 and 50 ft lengths. The flex duct has a place in several different industries from agricultural, clean rooms, fertilizer broadcasting, food grade, insulation blowing, pharmaceutical and shredders.
