Hoses take a beating in the plastics industry. Many standard PVC hoses do not stand up to the daily wear and tear of plastics manufacturing applications for long. Exposure to heat and abrasion can soon overcome the structural integrity of PVC hoses and the real cost of replacing them is measured in downtime.
That is why many plastics processors, especially those working with resins that require high-heat drying, go looking for hoses with more staying power and resilience.
It’s a search that quickly leads to Plastixs’ NORRES product line.
Minimize Downtime & Replacement Costs
Long-lasting and cost-effective, NORRES hoses are made of polyurethane and outperform traditional PVC hoses for heat-resistance, flexibility and lifespan – critical metrics that can go straight to your bottom line.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the advantages:
- Increased Temperature Range: the maximum temperature for a PVC hose is 150°F; the standard NORRES hose is rated for up to 195°F and the high temp version can stand temperatures of up to 255°F of continuous operation
- Flexibility: NORRES hoses are more flexible at different pressure ranges and for operations that require movement in multiple directions or flexibility against vacuum forces
- Grounding: NORRES hoses are made from static dissipative material and do not require grounding
- Wear Resistance & Minimal Downtime: greater overall wear resistance means less downtime spent replacing hoses
