Hi-Tech Duravent manufactures an unparalleled selection of hose products for Canadian businesses, for a wide range of applications. In the wood-processing and forestry sectors, sawdust buildup is a common occupational health and safety hazard that can lead to fires and explosions at sawmills. So sawdust elimination is an important undertaking at these facilities – and Hi-Tech Duravent offers the right solutions, with several sawdust hoses.
