Food and beverage companies must comply with strict standards that indicate the type of equipment they can use for their production operations. These requirements and restrictions are enforced to ensure the safety of consumers as the wrong equipment can lead to product contamination. They may apply to the entire piece of equipment as well as to the individual components, such as the transfer hoses.
For many agricultural applications, specific types of hoses are required to handle harsh conditions and work with certain chemicals and materials. Here we'll review what agricultural hoses are, their applications, and the different types available based on a given application's specific requirements.
A fume extraction hose is an important piece of equipment for many industrial applications, especially those that filter high levels of fumes and other potentially harmful emissions. Its main function is to remove harmful chemicals and fumes from the equipment to the air filtration system. The hose is a secondary piece to the larger main filtration system, which safely disperses the fumes. If the exhaust hose is not connected to a larger main filtration system, it cannot transport the fumes to a ventilated area for safe dispersal. Our exhaust hoses are environmentally resistant, durable, flexible, and useful in a range of applications that make the air safer and breathable.
When selecting the best hose for your industrial application, the material you choose can make all the difference. Although it may be tempting to choose the least expensive option, remember that some hose materials may be better for certain applications than others. Both interior and exterior factors will affect the performance and service life of your hose, so it is important to consider the potential for abrasion, extreme temperatures, UV exposure, and chemical exposure, among other factors.
As summer turns to fall, leaves begin falling from trees into the surrounding areas. While this natural process results in some of the most stunning views of the year, it also bestows residential property owners, commercial landscapers, and town/city municipalities with the task of gathering and disposing of the fallen debris. While leaf collection and disposal operations are both time- and labor-intensive, the right tools and equipment can make them more effective and efficient.
You have most likely heard of the UL 94V-0 standard but do you really know what it is? We offer a wide variety of hoses that meet or exceed UL 94V-0 requirements, but we have found that not everyone understands the importance of this rating.
Flexible hoses used in highly volatile industrial environments have the potential to produce sparks, which may ignite flammable dust particles to cause fires or explosions. This potential makes it necessary for high-risk facilities to use anti-static hoses in their facilities and operations.
Industrial hoses fall under a broader category of hoses and ducts that are available in a wide range of options, sizes, materials, and applications. This blog post will provide an overview of the industrial hoses offered at Flexaust, a guide to choosing the right industrial hose, and why you might want to consider Flexaust as your industrial hose supplier.
At Flexaust, we are a supplier of durable and reliable hose for industrial and commercial applications. Our hose offerings include polyvinyl chloride (PVC) hoses, thermoplastic rubber (TPR) hoses, and polyurethane (PU) hoses, all of which demonstrate different temperature range, abrasion resistance, and wall thickness requirements that make them a good, better, and best fit for different applications. In the following article, we discuss these three hose options and the applications for which they are best suited.
