Penflex manufactures two distinct types of interlocked conveyor hoses designed especially for dry bulk transfer: Standard Conveyor Hose and Smooth Bore Conveyor Hose.
Standard Conveyor Hose is a serviceable, unlined, medium weight hose featuring a fully packed interlocked construction.
Smooth Bore Conveyor Hose features rugged interlocking construction plus an integral metal strip lining which is ideal for dry bulk transfer. This lining provides Smooth Bore conveyor hose with a smooth bore that minimizes impaction and reduces turbulence for free flowing transmission of materials. Smooth Bore conveyor hose can also be produced with the inclusion of packing in the interlocks to reduce air loss and for low pressure requirements.
Penflex conveyor hoses are excellent for applications involving the pneumatic transmission of flake or pelletized plastics, grain, coal dust, slag and other dry granular or abrasive materials. It can be used for the loading or unloading of ships, barges, containers, silos, elevators, highway and rail cars. Standard conveyor hose can also be used for air intake for diesel superchargers, exhausting gases from ovens and furnaces, and boiler draft system expansion joints.
