The Flex-Flyte L-9 hose from Hi-Tech Duravent has been expertly designed for plastics processing applications. The hose has a number of features that make it ideal for conveying hot and dry air used to remove surface moisture from plastic resins.
The L-9 hose features durable construction using a two-ply fibreglass fabric coated with silicone rubber both inside and out. A helically wound spring wire is embedded between the two plies. This design ensures long tube life and provides low friction, which results in a smooth air flow. Thanks to the two-ply construction, the L-9 also minimizes heat loss.
The hose is lightweight, non-kinking and UV and weather resistant.
Applications beyond plastics
This hose is typically utilized by manufacturers and end-users of drying equipment in the plastics processing industry. However, the Flex-Flyte L-9 is also suitable for a wide range of applications in other markets.
Some of the potential uses include removal of dust, exhaust or chemical fumes. It is used in such diverse industries as automotive, paper mills, plating equipment and furnace cleaning.
High-Tech Duravent can help customers with any inquiries about possible uses, and welcomes the opportunity to discuss specific applications.
