Not Just A Ducting – Masterflex Technical Hoses

The word ducting is usually associated with air conditioning systems (HVAC Ducts), and most people immediately think of it as grey PVC lightweight ducting. Here at Masterflex, we have a wide selection of hose for a wide range of applications designed to give excellent performance and durability.

Ducting Applications

Masterflex ducting hose design makes it possible to transport gasses, solids, liquids, ducts, oil most in a wide range of applications with hoses and ducts being available in diameter 16 mm to 900 mm and applications covering temperatures of -250 °C to +1100 °C.

The Design

The design of our products consists of a combination of polymers such as PVC, Polyurethane, Polyethylene, Teflon (PTFE), Santoprene (TPE) silicone, neoprene, Hypalon and Viton; These polymers may be as film and casting on nylon or glass fabrics for greater mechanical strength.

Our ducting & hoses have steel wire reinforcement (copper coated or stainless steel) or external helixes from galvanised or stainless steel.

The reinforcement, helix, gives the hose mechanical strength and crush resistance. And on the Master Clip products, it provides added external protection when being dragged across concrete floors.

Ducting and hose factors when recommending them for applications include size, length, weight, chemical compatibility, pressure rating, temperature, vacuum rating, smoothness, electrical conductivity and whether any standards, such as ATEX or FDA, need to comply.
