Master-Clip products, are Polymer & Fabric & Hoses, featuring a mechanically locked helix; thus, eliminating the use of adhesives while providing long and uninterrupted service life.
The combination of many different types of materials, to suit special application requirements, is possible with Master-Clip fabric and polymer hoses; as they are mechanically locked and not reliant for being compatible for welding/glueing.
The outer helix of the ducting, to give protection against abrasion, can be galvanised steel or stainless steel. By the nature of their construction, fabric & polymer hoses, are incredibly lightweight, flexible and compressible.
Due to the type of tools involved in the mechanical locking process diameters between 50-900mm can be made and in lengths up to 25 meters (depending on hose type).
The Various Types of Polymer &
Fabric Hoses (Master-Clip)
Masterflex hoses made from Fabric and Polymer, called Master-Clip (MC), come in various types; as indicated below:
- Fabric: e.g: CAR
- Polymer: e.g: PE (Polyethylene), PUR (Polyurethane)
- Polymer coated fabric: e.g: Neoprene, Hypalon, Viton.
- Polymer coated glass fabric: e.g: SPARK, Silicon, (High Temperature) HT 400, HT 450, HT 650.
Hoses can also be made using a mixture of materials, such as Hypalon/Polyester outer with PTFE lining; giving good strength and excellent chemical resistance: for example, the Master-Clip PTFE – H.
Polymer & Fabric Hoses: Applications
Hoses suitable for extremely high temperatures, from -260 °C to 1100 °C, are offered by Masterflex; these can be accommodated across a wide diameter range from 50mm (1.97″) to 900mm (36″). Examples of its high-temperature applications, for hot air suction, include:
- Steel plants
- Dryer systems
Exhaust Specific Applications
Exhaust specific high-temperature hoses, resistant to 1100 degrees °C; these are lightweight, flexible and suitable for (engine exhaust) swing arm drop systems, including, hose reel systems. These High-Temperature Hoses are great and famous for use in:
