Lightweight, flexible hoses made of polyurethane (PU) – both soft and flexible plastic, which has very good abrasion resistance. The hoses are reinforced with a steel wire helix. They are designed for the extraction and transfer of air, dust, sawdust, granulates and other heavy-duty bulk materials. Manufactured in various wall thicknesses, from 0.4 to 2.5 mm. The wall thickness of a hose is crucial to its service life. It should be selected according to the size and nature of the bulk material flowing through the hose. The abrasion resistant ducting hoses are available in a very wide range of diameters.
Very popular in the wood industry and furniture industry, fitted on woodworking machines and systems of sawdust and shavings extraction. Also used in the metal, plastics, food, chemical, building materials industries and in many other applications.
There are hoses with different wall thickness that can be matched with the extracted particles, depending on how abrasive and how coarse they are. The hose must be compatible with the working pressure in the system. The working temperature range is from -40°C to +100°C for most hoses. Available as an antistatic version (AS) in accordance with 2014/34/EU (ATEX), microbe and hydrolysis resistant version, with food approval (FDA), and flame retardant according to DIN 4102 B1.
Manufactured in typical, standard lengths, e.g. 10 m, but shorter or longer lengths are also available. Large diameters of over 500 mm available as well.
