NL5180 - Tigerflex 2020 Polyurethane Lined PVC FDA Transfer Hose
NL5180 & NL5181 are both hardwall, clear braided polyurethane lined food grade hoses designed for the pneumatic transfer of powder, pellets, granular materials, or various other food processing applications such as flour, rice, grains etc. Their smooth bore prevents materials from building up and its external, hardened PVC helix reduces drag friction and provides easy handling & maneuvering. They have a clear wall which permits visibility of materials being conveyed. These hoses are manufactured with FDA compliant compounds and meets USDA Sanitary Standards. NL5180 incorporates a static wire which must be physically grounded properly for applications where the movement of materials creates a static build-up. This hose is also available in "straight" lengths from the factory (rather than rolled) for easier placement in tank truck trays or where no curvatures are desired when hose is not in use.
