Bulk Material Handling Hose Examples

Bulk Material Handling Hose

An efficient Bulk Media Handling System, for moving materials from one location to another, is highly dependent on using the correct bulk material handling hose. Bulk Material Transfer is a method that is employed in a variety of industries, including agriculture, petrochemicals, woodworking, pharmaceutical, food… This sounds relatively straightforward but crucially hose choice, depending on the material to be transferred, determines a bulk transfer system’s quality and success.

Bulk Material Transfers are often done using pneumatic systems, using either a positive or negative pressure, to convey bulk materials through flexible hoses. The most commonly used method, for pneumatically conveying bulk elements, works by either pushing or pulling materials at the rate at which transferred materials become airborne in high-velocity air streams; this allows items to be moved, continuously, and quickly over long distances.

It is possible, depending on the material being transferred, that the media can hit the conveyor wall and break. Abrasive fragments, from such media, can result in violent movements; causing hoses to wear out and fail with continuous impacts. If a pneumatic system experiences any of these problems, it may be a sign that lined spiral hoses need to be used.

Therefore, choosing the ideal Bulk Material Handling Hose for a bulk material transfer application can have a massive impact on the efficiency5 and reliability of a pneumatic Bulk handling system.

Gravel, Sand, Stone Hoses

Industries that handle aggregates require hoses, to transport materials such as glass, gravel, sand, stones, silo, and cement, with the highest demands of service life and abrasion resistance. Such hoses, depending on the material to transport, require specific wall thicknesses. Cement factories also demand exceptionally durable hoses that are both lightweight and flexible, making them easy to handle; such hoses can be very long-lasting under extreme conditions.

Pharmaceutical Hoses

Pharmaceutical Flexible hoses, which are FDA-approved, are designed for applications within the pharmaceutical industry. It is crucial to use food-grade hoses, in pharmaceutical industries, to preserve the integrity of edibles during transportation. Edibles, travelling through non-FDA approved or non-specific, could get contaminated. Such contamination could result from off-gassing or hazardous materials reacting between the hose and the transporting media. There are several types of pharmaceutical hoses, including heavy-duty and antistatic ones, with high structural integrity.
