The unsurpassed range of industrial hosing and ducting products available from Hi-Tech Duravent covers a broad variety of workplace applications. An example, unique among other wares, is the Flex-Flyte L-9 fibreglass hose. This option has been expertly designed for plastics-processing tasks, and it is particularly ideal for conveying hot and dry air used to remove surface moisture from plastic resins. The Flex-Flyte L-9 is a lightweight, non-kinking hose that is brick-red in colour and that resists weather and ultraviolet rays.
Coated with silicone rubber
The Flex-Flyte L-9 is built for use in the aerospace and plastics sectors. The Hi-Tech Duravent team builds this unit out of two-ply fibreglass fabric and coats it with silicone rubber, both inside and outside the hose, with a helically wound spring wire embedded between the two plies. This is an advanced design that makes sure that the hose lasts for a long lifespan and offers a low level of friction, which leads to a very smooth airflow. This two-ply construction also helps the hose to minimize heat loss.
This fibreglass hose is typically used by manufacturers and end users of drying equipment, who use it for plastics processing. But Hi-Tech Duravent recommends the Flex-Flyte L-9 for a variety of applications in other sectors too. Some key examples include dust, exhaust, light-powder, and chemical-fume removal – including fumes from lav waste – in addition to pellet drying and pre-launch fuel venting. There are also many uses for this hose in such industries as pulp and paper, plating equipment, furnace cleaning, and the automotive sector.
The Flex-Flyte L-9 fibreglass hose offers other notable features and benefits: cuffed ends; easy installation; availability in one-ply form (U-9) for lower-pressure applications; continuous use in temperatures from -59 to 260 degrees Celsius; and ability to withstand temperatures above 315 degrees Celsius.
Hi-Tech Duravent offers the Flex-Flyte L-9 hose in 12- and 25-foot lengths, with inner diameters that run from two to 12 inches, and non-standard lengths and cuffs are also available. Hi-Tech Duravent does not recommend using this hose for conveying liquids or abrasive material.
