Flexaust manufactures flexible, durable hoses for a variety of commercial and industrial applications. Agricultural settings, in particular, require hoses that can withstand harsh environmental conditions, including the chemicals used in fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. Below is an overview of the common applications of industrial hoses in agricultural settings, as well as the products we offer to meet these demands.
Industrial hoses can be used in a variety of agricultural applications, such as:
Considerations & Accessories for Agricultural Hoses
Agricultural applications usually require hoses made of heavy-duty materials that can resist chemicals and abrasion. For this reason, the hoses are often supported by an external plastic helix or a spring steel wire helix. Some applications may require contamination-free hoses, which can be produced with FDA-acceptable materials.
When selecting agricultural hoses, take the following features into consideration:
- Knowing the difference between flame resistant vs. flame retardant and what your application requires
- Meeting UL 94V-0 requirements
- Diameter/length/size requirements
- Extreme temperature capabilities
- UV stability/resistance
- Whether the application may be flammable and require an anti-static hose
Also consider whether you’ll need to add the following accessories to your industrial hose:
- Bridge clamps
- Swivel connectors
- Latch locks
Materials Used for Agricultural Hoses
The right hose material for your specific agricultural use will depend on several key considerations, which you can learn more about from our new eBook. Generally, these materials are best suited for agricultural applications due to their durability and abrasion resistance:
- Polyurethane (heavy weight available)
- Thermoplastic rubber
