The “Neoprene Flex - 2 ply HD” is a heavy-duty hose recommended for light bulk material handling applications. Each flexible duct is made from double-ply neoprene coated polyester fabric, making for a thick walled hose that offers excellent flexibility. The material handling hose is then reinforced with a spring steel wire helix. This flexible hoses spiral design is made to withstand abrasive dust and other harsh materials. The neoprene and polyester construction of the “Neoprene Flex - 2 ply HD” offers superior abrasion resistance and excellent flex life. Neoprene resists degradation more than natural or other synthetic rubbers. This relative inertness makes it well suited for demanding applications.
The material transfer ducts have a high strength to weight ratio that is augmented by excellent flow characteristics. The “Neoprene Flex - 2 ply HD” material handling hose can handle both positive and negative pressure and has a working temperature range from -40 to +250 degrees Fahrenheit. This hose can be ordered with an external wear-strip in cases where abrasion on the exterior of the hose is possible. Also, an additional neoprene coating can be added for better abrasion and chemical resistance. The additional coating and added wear-strip can extend the life of this material handling hose in demanding environments.
Each flexible duct is offered in a wide range of internal diameter sizes from 4 to 24 inches. The hose can be made in unique lengths for O.E.M.’s requiring a heavy-duty hose for machinery. If a particular application calls for a larger internal diameter, custom sizes up 60 inches are available on special order. The “Neoprene Flex - 2 ply HD” comes in black and is sold in 25 ft lengths. Each section of the heavy-duty hose is finished with a plain cut end but specialty cuffs and enlarged ends are available upon request. The material transfer ducts can be utilized in a variety of ways, such as abrasion resistance, concrete transport, dust collection, foundry sand transfer, glass clinching, material handling, powder transfer, shredders, street and parking lot sweeping.
