What’s New in October
It is now October and we are glad that the fall season is finally here. Leaves change color and are shed by deciduous trees, typically leaf-bearing trees, which fall off on a seasonal basis. Among the trees that are in the deciduous category include maple trees, birch trees, oak trees, elm trees and several other popular ones. This sets off the beginning of the leaf collection season.
At Ducting.com we have the best flexible hose products for applications ranging from air ventilation to leaf collection. For this month, we would like to introduce a new duct in our inventory, the “PVC Flexduct (General Purpose) Clear” and low cost leaf collection hose. This flexible duct is available at a rate that is 30-40% lower than the cost of many of its competitors. This PVC ducting is designed for applications involving the transfer of air, fumes, and even light materials. This clear hose is available in ID sizes ranging from 2” to 12” and is stocked in standard lengths of 12ft and 25ft. It is one of the most compressible and flexible PVC ducting products in our inventory. It has an excellent bend radius that allows it to fit into smaller and tighter areas with relative ease.
Some Tips When you Buy Flexible Ducting
What is Flex Fatigue?
This is something you should consider, if you are flexing and compressing your hose continuously. Flex fatigue is a flex duct’s ability to withstand repeated flexing before failing, cracking or breaking. Some hose materials exhibit better flex fatigue than others. Fabric hoses dipped in either PVC or Rubber exhibit excellent flex fatigue in Air Ventilation applications while Polyurethane and PVC perform better in material handling applications.
What Does Compression Ratio Refer To?
In the context of flex duct sizing, compression ratio refers to the actual length that a flexible hose can compress. It is the measurement of exactly how long the hose will be in its smallest possible form. For example, if a flex hose is listed as having a 10 to 1 compression ratio, that hose can be compressed from a full 25ft down to 2.5ft. This is important in applications that require a portable and easily stored hoses.
