Ducting specialist Eximo speed LOCK has launched FoodFlex AS-a flexible, anti-static polyether-polyurethane ducting solution with a stainless steel wire spiral that is designed to be used in a variety of food manufacturing applications, where dust and other food product generated abrasives have the potential to generate static electricity.
FoodFlex AS (the AS is for anti-static) is translucent, has a temperature resistance of – 40° up to + 100° C and is designed to be used for the suction and discharge of abrasive and granular materials commonly found in manufacturing applications in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
FoodFlex AS is resistant to chemical hydrolysis and a wide range of food-specific microbes, is lightweight, non-toxic and food safe according to US FDA-regulation 21 CFR 177.2600, while at the same time, FoodFlex AS is permanently anti-static (R ≤ 109 Ohm), and conforms to TRBS 2153 to provide excellent abrasion resistance and good all-round flexibility.
