The “Acrylic Flex 325 Air Handler” is a high temperature duct designed for air movement. Each flex hose is constructed from a single-ply acrylic coated polyester fabric. This makes for a flexible duct that is easily retractable. The flexible duct is protected externally by a black PVC wear-strip and reinforced internally with a spring steel wire helix. The durable steel wire coil gives the hose its strength and flexibility, allowing it to be easily utilized in a variety of industrial settings. The PVC wear-strip protects the exterior of the flexible high temperature hose from wear when being moved or dragged along the ground.
The “Acrylic Flex 325 Air Handler” flexible duct has a working temperature range from -20 to +325 degrees Fahrenheit. This is unique among air ventilation hoses because the hose can handle temperatures above ambient. The high temperature duct has excellent compressibility and is ideal for moving large volumes of air in portable or permanent ventilation and exhaust systems. Each high temperature flex hose is UL 94V-0 flame retardant. To be considered UL 94 V-0 flame retardant, hose material exposed to a vertical flame (which is removed after 10 seconds) must stop burning within 10 seconds of ignition without flaming drips. Each flexible high temperature hose is easily retractable allowing for convenient storage and easy transportation.
The “Acrylic Flex 325 Air Handler” large diameter hose is available in a wide range of internal diameters from 8 to 24 inches. The internal diameter refers to a straight line passing from side to side through the center of a circle or sphere (the mouth of the hose). Another unique feature of this hose is the availability of a large diameter hose with resistance to high temperatures. Each hose is sold in standard 25 ft lengths and custom length flexible ducts are also available upon request. The flexible high temperature hose can be used in a variety of applications like: air ventilation, blowers, chillers, confined space ventilation, dehumidification, and flame retardant applications. This flexible duct is sold plain cut, but specialty cuffs and enlarged or reduced ends are available upon request.
