Ducting specialist Eximo speed LOCK announces the launch of a new anti-static flexible ducting for the food and pharmaceutical manufacturing segments.

Eximo’s new FoodFlex AS (anti-static) is a flexible polyether-polyurethane ducting solution featuring a stainless steel wire spiral. The new flexible ducting product is recommended for a variety of food manufacturing applications, where dust and other food product-generated abrasives have the potential to produce static electricity.

FoodFlex AS anti static flexible ducting is designed for the suction and discharge of abrasive and granular materials commonly found in manufacturing applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Eximo founder and Managing Director Roger Marriott comments that the addition of FoodFlex AS to their ducting range begins yet another successful chapter in the company’s 31-year history of providing unique and cutting edge ducting solutions.

He explains that Eximo has launched a unique food safe and highly anti-static flexible ducting product designed to provide food manufacturers across Australia and New Zealand the safest and longest lasting environmental protection solution on the market. The flexible ducting product will help food and drug manufacturers keep both their workers and factories safe and secure from static electricity.

Key features of FoodFlex AS anti-static flexible ducting include translucent product; temperature resistance range of -40°C up to +100°C; resistance to chemical hydrolysis and a wide range of food-specific microbes; lightweight, non-toxic and food safe according to US FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.2600; permanently anti-static (R ≤ 109 Ohm); and conforming to TRBS 2153 to provide excellent abrasion resistance and good all-round flexibility.

Mr Marriott notes that there is no product currently on the market that can compare with the anti-static capabilities, technical abilities and rugged reliability of FoodFlex AS ducting.

FoodFlex AS will be available ex-stock from Eximo speed LOCK in a range of lengths and diameters from May 1, 2015.
