Flexible Ducting Hose for Dust Extraction Systems

Flexible Ducting Hose for Dust Extraction Systems

In many industries, a workplace that is free from dust and other airborne particles is essential to ensure the optimum efficiency of equipment and protect the health of machine operatives. Dust extraction systems are used widely in many different settings, where flexible ducting hose is an integral component.

Flexible ducting – hoses, pipes, or tubes – is available in different diameters, lengths and materials according to the type and requirements of the dust extraction system. The main function is to channel particles from one place to another, so that machinery, operatives, and members of the public are protected.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Flexible Ducting Hose?

For any business that is installing a dust extraction system, flexible hose offers important benefits:

  • Ease of installation: flexible air duct hose is easy to manipulate and can be moulded to fit any space or configuration, so installation is uncomplicated and quick to complete;
  • Affordability: flexible hose is an inexpensive option, particularly because it is especially suitable for short duct runs;
  • Maintenance: regularly assessing hose for damage, wear or tears is a simple but important way to check for problems that could cause the dust extraction system to work less efficiently. Translucent hose also allows blockages to be quickly spotted so they can be removed;
  • Adaptability: flexible ducting hose can also be used to connect vents and outlets to existing rigid ductwork, reducing the need to undertake more costly and complex installation work – even on a temporary basis.
