The "Smooth-Tube PU" material handling hose is a medium weight duct that is made up of polyurethane film. A great hose for dust collection and other material handling applications, it features a smooth interior that maximizes the level of flow in the tube. It is a very abrasion resistant hose thanks to its polyurethane makeup and its external wearstrip. Overall, this flexible ductwork is a great choice for your dust and material handling needs.
Consider carefully the benefits of having a smooth interior on a flexible hose for material handling. A smooth interior area means that the hose does not have any uneven ridges or corrugations. Such uneven surfaces can invite finer materials to get caught inside and clog up the flex duct. This can be a huge problem that will hinder the efficient functioning of your application. Particles will not get caught or form clogs on smooth interior surfaces of this hose due to its smooth bore. Inside, the material handling hose will benefit greatly from a superior and efficient level of airflow.
Durability matters when you are looking for a quality hose for dust collection. It is always better to use a hose that is resistant to punctures and crushing. The secret behind the ducting’s durability lies within its external wearstrip. This flexible ductwork is reinforced with a rigid external ABS helix. ABS stands for acrylonitrile butadiene styrene. It is a thermoplastic rubber that is known for its improved durability and impact resistance. ABS brings those durability qualities to this material handling hose. The external ABS helix will help to prevent damage that may come from physical objects, damage such as crushing or puncturing.
In addition to a resistance to physical damage, this hose also brings to the table other beneficial resistance properties. This flexible ductwork has a unique anti-microbial feature. It will not allow any mold, mildew, or other microbial byproducts to develop on the hose body. It is because of this feature that this is a good flexible hose for use in the fields of agriculture, lavatory waste disposal, peat moss vacuuming, and landfill venting.
