Using rubber hose to enhance your pneumatic conveying process
Rubber hose is widely used in pneumatic conveying systems for both conveying line and bends in systems that require some natural flexibility. Its properties also make it ideal for handling abrasive, friable, or cohesive conveyed materials. This article focuses on how to apply rubber hose in pneumatic conveying lines. Information on steel pipe is provided for comparison.
Rubber hose has many attributes as a material for pneumatic conveying lines. Its natural flexibility makes it ideal for use in vacuum unloading applications and mobile conveying systems and for joining line sections in situations where standard steel pipe bends will not match the required geometry.
