The “Thermoplastic Flex Medium-Duty WS” is a flexible hose made of a thermoplastic rubber compound and features an external wear-strip along its body. These sweeper hoses are great for handling general-purpose material, air, dust, and fume. Because of this, they are often used in street sweeping applications. The external wear-strip on this sweeper tube gives it a superior degree of protection against external physical abrasions. The wear-strip enhances its drag resistance, meaning that it can be dragged along rough surfaces for longer.
Thermoplastic Rubber Body: Thermoplastic rubber is a type of synthetic rubber that is made using a mix of plastic and rubber. This type of compound provides a great level of chemical resistance and a longer lifespan in extreme temperature conditions. This is a part of the reason why these hoses are sought after for use as street sweeper parts.
External Wear-Strip: Perhaps the most defining feature of these sweeper hoses is right in the name! The external wear strip is the yellow lining seen across the body of this flexible hose. It extends this product’s life by protecting it from external harm. People often tend to overlook that harm that can come to street sweeper parts from the outside, so this hose, with its visible yellow wear-strip, will help to remind them of that.
Cut to Length: We recognize that each specific job may require a specific length from its sweeper hoses. That is why we offer this flexible hose in custom length options. The standard length for this hose is available in either 25ft or 50ft options. However, we will custom cut this hose for your needs up to 50ft. It will help you save both time and money while maximizing your efficiency for your street sweeping job.
