Electrically Conductive Hose: At Masterflex Technical Hoses Ltd we design, produce and supply an innovative line of flexible electrically conductive hoses; helping to lessen personnel risk and prevent devastating results; Most Masterflex electrically conductive hoses are suitable for use on ATEX approved equipment. Masterflex has a Flexible Ducting Hose Range, manufactured from either PVC, PVC/EVA, Polyurethane, or PTFE, for electrically conductive applications; ideal for temperatures up to +270°C and available in sizes 25mm to 900mm diameter (dependent on type).
WHY USE ELECTRICALLY CONDUCTIVE HOSES?
As media flows through hoses, particles collide, there is a generation of electrical charge. This generation, of electrical charge, is influenced by several variables:
- The material conveyed through the hose (flammable liquids, paint, dust, gas, alcohol & more)
- The length of the hose assembly
- The velocity of material transfer through the hose
- The material volume transferred through the hose
- The humidity and temperature within the hose
To keep static electricity from building to dangerous levels, a level enough to cause a fire or an explosion, electroconductive hoses need to be in use.
