Made from silicon coated glass fabric, Eximo HotFlex is made to handle the high temperatures while being extremely flexible and strong.
Applications are many, including the suction of hot fumes, gases or dusts right across all industries including mining and quarrying, agricultural, engineering, general industrial, and certain non-food-grade applications in the food and beverage sector.
The product's temperature resistance ranges from -60°C to +300°C.
HotFlex has excellent temperature resistance, is flame retardant, embodies an abrasion resistant outer helix, and has excellent axial compressibility.
The product is a distinct silver grey colour and is supplied in 10m rolls or can be cut to length to order.
Across the product range it weighs anywhere between 400g per metre up to 3.1 kg per metre - a light product for easily handling in difficult installations.
Bend radii range from 30mm to 280mm, maximum work pressure bar 0.85 to 0.03, and maximum vacuum bar from 0.32 to 0.01.
