A new static dissipative polyurethane hose for loading and unloading trucks and other applications has been introduced by Flexaust.
FlexStat 60 Static Dissipative Hose is a bendable heavy-wall polyurethane hose with an embedded copper grounding wire that is flexible, durable, and operates over a wide temperature range.
Designed for severe service bulk product load and unload applications where safety is a key consideration, Flexaust says this flexible ESD safe hose is tear- and crush-resistant and has a smooth interior to minimize friction and assure efficient material flow.
Featuring a 0.06 in. thick wall that is clear for contents viewing and a rigid external ABS helix wear strip, FlexStat 60 Static Dissipative Hose is a suitable replacement for heavy-wall PVC and rubber hose. Flexuast says the hose provides surface resistivity of 108–1010 Ohms/sq., and operates from -40°F to 200°F. It comes in 4 in. to 8 in. I.D. sizes in OEM lengths and colors. Cuffs are optional.
Flexaust says the hose is priced according to size, length, and quantity. Free samples and price quotations are available upon request.
