The “Urethane Flex Medium Duty” is a sweeper hose meant for abrasives, dust, and general material transfer applications. Of all the sweeper truck parts that operators need in order to have their vehicles working, the hose component is very crucial to have. This flexible duct is a great option to use to fulfill the suction duties that the sweeper truck needs to perform. It is made using a medium grade polyurethane material. Its body of this black or clear flexible hose is reinforced with a bronze coated spring steel wire helix. The hose itself benefits from an enhanced level of protection against internal and external abrasions.
Benefit of Polyurethane Material: As far as materials go, polyurethane is a great one to use for sweeper truck parts like hoses. When this polyurethane duct is in use, it will provide an enhanced level of durability that is matched by its flexibility. Polyurethane is generally a stronger material than most rubber compounds and vinyl. The material of this clear flexible hose tends to resist the degrading effects of moisture, ozone, chemicals, and fungus. Given all the various types of debris that this sweeper hose will be expected to help sweep away, it is good that it is made from a reliable material like polyurethane.
Designed for Wide Temperature Ranges: Any street sweeper operator will know that they can be sweeping streets at any time of day. Furthermore, all of us know that the day brings with it a cycle of changing temperatures. Regardless of whether this flexible duct is used in the cold of the early morning or in the blazing heat of the afternoon sun, it will retain its structural integrity without suffering any temperature-related damage. It can withstand temperatures ranging between -65° F to 225° F. Given this operating temperature range, it is safe to say that these flexible sweeper truck parts can be work comfortably at any temperature during the course of a day.
Steel Wire Helix: When one takes a look at this sweeper hose, among the first things that one will realize is that the hose has a wire winding its way throughout its body. This is a bronze coated spring steel wire helix. Many flexible duct products come with this item in their bodies. The purpose behind it is to add more durability to the hose. With a wire helix in place, the hose is better able to withstand physical abrasions from the outside and the inside. The wire helix helps the sweeper hose retain its shape.
