Safety first: Antistatic hoses for powder transportation
Powder hoses are used in the process industry when there is a need to transfer powder from one place to another in production. They can be used in a variety of applications, including the transfer of milk powder, infant formula, flour, medicine, and many other types of powder.
But when and how should you use powder hoses? Read on as we present our different powder hoses and give you a deeper understanding of their different functions and applications.
Where and when are powder hoses used in production?
Powder hoses are used for various applications across the food, pharmaceutical and chemical production industries. With an ATEX approval, they can also prevent the ignition of flammable substances and provide protection against explosions. Powder hoses can also be used in situations where there is a risk of static electricity, for example in areas with high humidity or high temperatures.
Typically, the hoses are used when the powder needs to be transferred from a container, such as a tank or silo, to a production line where it will be used as an ingredient in production. The hoses can also be used to move powder from one production site to another, e.g. from a production line to a packaging unit.
Hoses for powders have several important advantages, including:
- Antistatic and resistant to flammable media, helping to prevent dangerous situations and accidents
- Flexible and lightweight construction for easy handling
- Ozone, abrasion, and weather resistant
- Taste and odor-free food transportation
