Tigerflex™ Voltbuster™ VLT-SD™ Series Polyurethane Material Handling Hose

| January 4, 2017

New Voltbuster™ VLT-SD™ Series hose by Tigerflex™, features an innovative design which effectively dissipates static to ground, helping prevent static build-up and reducing the potential for dangerous electrostatic discharges when transferring powders, pellets and other granular materials. The hose tube is constructed from highly abrasion resistant, food grade polyurethane. Fabric reinforcement provides extra strength for suction and discharge. The grounding wire is encapsulated in a rigid helix on the exterior of the hose, safely eliminating the risk of contaminating the transferred materials.

General Applications

  • Bulk truck and railcar unloading
  • Food grade material handling – heavy duty abrasive
  • Material handling – heavy duty abrasive
  • Milling machine scrap recovery
  • Plastic processing equipment
  • Pneumatic conveying equipment
  • Suction and discharge

NOTE: Service life may vary depending on operating conditions and type of material being conveyed.
This product is designed to dissipate static electricity when the embedded grounding wire is physically extracted and securely connected to ground, through the fitting or by other means.

Construction  

Static dissipative polyurethane tube, polyester fabric reinforcement, rigid helix and grounding wire (patent pending).

Service Temperature  

-40°F (-40°C) to 150°F (+65°C)

Features and Advantages

  • Superior Static Protection! – A properly grounded Voltbuster™ hose will not retain an electrostatic charge sufficient to create a propagating brush discharge. Hose material, using the embedded grounding wire, shows a charge decay time constant of < 1 second, based on independent lab testing.
  • Food Grade Materials – Hose tube complies with FDA(05) requirements. Grounding wire embedded in external helix to prevent material contamination.
  • Extra Thick Abrasion Resistant Double-Ply Polyurethane Tube – Provides for longer hose life and lower operating costs versus rubber or PVC hoses.
  • Fabric Reinforcement – Designed with high tensile strength, food grade FDA(06), polyester yarn jacket to handle both suction, and higher pressure discharge applications.
  • Transparent Construction – “See-the-flow”. Allows for visual conformation of material flow.
  • “Cold-Flex” Materials – Hose remains flexible in sub-zero temperatures.
  • Easy Slide Helix – Rigid helix design protects hose from wear; allows hose to slide easily over rough surfaces. Easy to handle.
  • Oil Resistant Polyurethane Tube – Resists most animal and petroleum based oils.
  • Now Phthalate Free

CAUTION: This product is designed to dissipate static electricity when the embedded grounding wire is physically extracted and securely connected to ground, through the fitting or by other means.
