Features and Advantages

Features and Advantages

  • Superior Static Protection! - A properly grounded Voltbuster™ hose will not retain an electrostatic charge sufficient to create a propagating brush discharge. Hose material, using the embedded grounding wire, shows a charge decay time constant of < 1 second, based on independent lab testing.
  • Food Grade Materials - Hose tube complies with FDA requirements. Grounding wire embedded in external helix to prevent material contamination.
  • Extra Thick Abrasion Resistant Single - Ply Polyurethane Tube - Provides for longer hose life and lower operating costs versus rubber or PVC hoses.
  • Transparent Construction - "See-the-flow". Allows for visual confirmation of material flow.
  • "Cold-Flex" Materials - Hose remains flexible in sub-zero temperatures.
  • Easy Slide Helix - Rigid helix design protects hose tube from wear; allows hose to slide easily over rough surfaces. Easy to handle.
  • Phthalate Free
