Woodworking Applications of Industrial Hoses

 Print this!

Industrial hoses are high-performance hoses that are designed to handle the complex demands of industrial production. Woodworking facilities can face airborne contaminants such as chemicals, VOCs, dust, fumes, and smoke residue. Untreated, these pose a serious hazard for equipment and employees. An industrial hose from Flexaust can move airborne contaminants away from products and work areas to improve overall air quality and protect people and machinery.

Uses and Applications

Our industrial hoses can collect and dispose of airborne hazards from work areas to minimize buildup and enhance safety. Common applications include:

  • Dust Collection. Dust collection hoses are essential for safety and worker health in any facility. As dust, wood shavings, plastics, powders, and other grinding material collects, it can exacerbate allergies and cause respiratory irritation in workers or restrict critical airflow to machinery. Dust expelled from air vents may also settle on production lines and impact product quality.
  • Static Control. The risk of static discharge sparking dust and causing a fire in a home shop or small commercial facility can be low. However, Flexaust components are built with protective elements to further minimize the risk of static discharge.
  • CNC Routers. Our industrial hoses can directly route dust and debris of CNC operations to a disposal system. Flexible hosing can be configured to transfer dust away from your CNC machines and workspace, no matter where they sit in the workshop.
  • Cyclones. Our solutions can incorporate cyclone separators that separate large chips and wood fragments away from dust for easier sorting and disposal.
