The “Smooth-Tube PVC” hose is a medium-weight PVC flex ducting that is reinforced by a rigid external PVC helix making for a clear flexible hose. It combines durability and flexibility into one cost-effective package! These PVC hoses are recommended for use in applications involving air, light materials, and dust movement.
The most distinguishing feature of these PVC hoses is their smooth interiors. It is, after all, where they get their name. If you take a look inside these flexible air ducts, you will notice that they do not have ridges, curves, or any kind of design on the inside. The purpose behind the smooth interiors is to prevent any small particles from getting stuck inside the hose. That way you will not have to worry about dealing with clogs. It ensures that the flex ducting benefits from a maximized level of airflow.
This clear flexible hose is a longer lasting hose because it is crush and abrasion resistant. This is thanks to the strong PVC outer helix that goes along the body of these flexible air ducts. This outer wearstrip provides the hose with a more solid frame. It is ultimately more durable than competing hoses that lack the external wearstrip. It can resist abrasions from rocks and other small physical objects in case it is dragged along a rough and abrasive surface. The wonderful thing about this flex ducting is that despite its superior durability, it is also very flexible. It can be flexed and bent to suit your application as needed. One of the benefits of these flexible air ducts is that it is available in a flame retardant version. It can also handle hot temperatures up to 160° F.
The “Smooth-Tube PVC” clear flexible hose is available in standard lengths of either 25 feet or 50 feet. Their levels of wall thickness can range from 0.030 inch, 0.032 inch, 0.035 inch, and 0.40 inch, depending on the PVC hoses’ ID Size. Available ID sizes are 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, and 12 inches. It is an attractive hose, with a clear body accompanied by a black colored PVC helix. The clear body allows you to see the materials going through the flex ducting and will allow you to easily spot the source of any problems.
