Tigerflex Series 2020S Heavy Duty Polyurethane Food Grade Hose
Tigerflex(TM) Series 2020S(TM) is a heavy duty polyurethane food grade material handling hose. It features an anti-static liner that is permanently static dissipative; designed to work well in both humid and dry climates. Hose features fabric reinforcement, embedded grounding wire in the rigid helix to prevent contamination, transparent construction, cold weather flexibility and an easy slide outer helix for easier handling.
Features and Benefits
o Anti-static Liner - Newly developed TPU materials are permanently static dissipative and work well in both humid and dry climates! Helps prevent the build-up of static electricity for added safety and to help keep material flowing smoothly.
o Extra Thick Abrasion Resistant Polyurethane (TPU) Liner - Designed for applications where severe abrasion is a factor. Liner provides for longer hose life and lower operating costs versus rubber or PVC hoses.
o Food Grade Liner - Hose liner complies with applicable FDA requirements.
o Fabric Reinforcement - Designed with high tensile strength, food grade, polyester yarn jacket to handle both suction, and higher pressure discharge applications.
o Grounding Wire - Multi-strand wire helps prevent the build-up of static electricity for added safety and to help keep material flowing smoothly. It's embedded within the rigid helix to prevent contamination of transferred materials.
o Transparent Construction - Allows for visual confirmation of material flow.
o Cold Weather Flexible - Special compounds remain flexible in sub zero temperatures.
o Easy Slide Helix - Exposed rigid helix design protects hose tube from cover wear, and allows hose to slide easily over rough surfaces; easy-to-handle.
