Hose Accessories for Industrial Hoses

Along with our industrial hose and ducting products, we offer many hose fittings and accessories to increase the efficiency of a wide range of applications. The purpose of these hose fittings is to seal the host in order to prevent leaks and create a tight, secure connection. We use the STAMPED selection process to evaluate size, temperature, application, material, pressure, ends, and delivery to help our customers find the best hose and hose accessories for their applications. When it comes to evaluating ends, it’s important to understand hose style, materials and dimensions, conductivity requirements, and more in order to select the best end fitting for your application needs. At Flexaust we maintain a broad selection of clamps, adapters, Y connectors, and more in multiple different material types.
