Insulated Hose Promotes Process Efficiency
Flexaust Flex-Vest® Insulated Hose features 1” fiberglass insulation with R-value=4 sandwiched between a doubleply silicone coated fiber-glass fabric inside layer, reinforced with a spring steel wire helix, and an outer layer of singleply neoprene coated polyester fabric hose, also reinforced with a spring steel wire helix. Keeping extreme temperatures inside with minimal loss, this flexible hose operates from -65 F to 550 F. This energy-saving product is suited for air handling applications at low positive or negative pressures and conforms to UL-94.
Shaft-Sealing Solutions Optimize Lube Retention
SKF® low-friction Waveseal® shaft-sealing solutions feature a specially molded lip to form a sinusoidal or wave pattern around the shaft surface. This unique pattern enables lubricant to be pumped back to the bearing for optimized lubricant retention while pushing dirt away from the lip/shaft surface (regardless which way the shaft is turning) to protect against contamination. Seals with a Waveseal sealing lip are suitable for many applications, including gearboxes, speed reducers, transmissions, motors, drive systems and pumps, among others.
