If your application requires an exhaust air hose that can be maneuvered through tight spaces and handle elevated temperatures, we offer several silicone flex ducting with great flexibility. These flexible exhaust flex pipe products are non-kinking, meaning they can be bent and moved into positions without creating sharp and sudden direction changes that would sacrifice airflow. Our silicone exhaust ducts also offer excellent heat resistance which can withstand temperatures up to 550 degrees Fahrenheit. Though not necessarily as heat abating as the stainless steel ducts mentioned above, silicone nonetheless is a material that is sure to hold up in some of the most strenuous exhaust situations imaginable.
A material that combines the best of both worlds when it comes to exhaust ducts is aluminum. Compressible and strong, aluminum is one of the most utilized types of exhaust flex pipe around. When combined with a coating of silver fiberglass to provide extra abrasive and heat resistance, aluminum flex ducting is sure to be an optimal solution for all your ventilation and exhaust removal problems. Additionally, many of our fiberglass-aluminum flex ducts have wear strips incorporated into their design to help mitigate any and all damage from hard or sharp surfaces and material.
When an application requires that a hose be moved across abrasive materials like dirt, asphalt, and other rough surfaces, we suggest using an exhaust air hose with extra wear protection. Our Spiral Lock series of exhaust flex pipe is constructed with a durable outer wire to provide this necessary extra layer of protection. This outer metallic feature provides the flex ducting with extra resistance when being moved and dragged across surfaces that could potentially damage the outer wear-layer of the duct hose. These exhaust ducts are a great choice for applications with heavy movement like pollution control and landfill venting.
Perhaps the most easily recognizable example of exhaust ducts used in everyday life are those affixed to your car or truck. These flex ducts must be designed to handle toxic, noxious, and hazardous fumes generated during the fuel injection process. These include (but are certainly not limited to) hydrocarbons, nitrous oxide, and carbon monoxide. Generally, exhaust gasses are collect in the manifold of the engine and then directed to a series of exhaust ducts for transfer to the outside of the vehicle. Because space in a vehicle’s chassis or hood is limited, ducting suppliers know that by using flexible and compressible lengths of duct hose, they will be able to take up less of the precious space inside the automobile. That is why, for the most part, the interior exhaust ducts of automobiles are made from silicone or neoprene; materials that are flexible and lightweight, yet durable enough that you never need worry that any exhaust ventilation performance is being lost.
