The “Urethane Flex (General Purpose) Black” is a reliable and cost-effective flexible duct for light-to-medium grade applications involving air, dust, and materials transfer. Made from durable polyurethane, it is a black colored hose that exhibits superior compressibility, flexibility and abrasion resistance. The body of this polyurethane ducting is reinforced by a spring steel wire helix that acts to give the hose a sturdy physical build while also helping to improve its compressibility at the same time. The superior flexibility of this hose allows it to be used effectively in situations where the hose has to be bent at tight angles in order to reach more isolated areas. Compressibility is also another key feature of this flexible material handling hose because it allows the end user to store and transport the flexible duct with ease.
This wire-reinforced hose is available at a rate that is 15 to 30% below the cost of similar competitors hoses.
Applications involving the transfer of materials, from light dust to larger solid wood chips, can wreak havoc on the walls of most plastic hoses. Polyurethane is the ideal plastic material for use as a flexible material handling hose. The key factor is that polyurethane possesses a high rate of resistance against physical wear. It exhibits a longer lifespan in physically demanding situations. As an added bonus, polyurethane brings a high level of resistance to solvents such as oils and grease.
This wire-reinforced hose is available in most popular internal diameter (ID) sizes ranging from 2” to 12” and is available in standard lengths of 12ft and 25ft. The ends of this flexible duct are plain cut, so the end user has the ability to use clamps of their preference to attach them to their intended outlets. One very distinguishing feature of this polyurethane ducting is its ability to operate in temperatures ranging from -65° F to 225° F, a trait that is lacking in many of its competitors. This general purpose flexible material handling hose is the perfect option for applications such as leaf collection, chemical fume extraction, hull sanding equipment, wood dust collection, and cold/hot air supply.
