Clear-Flex polyurethane: CLEARLY a better connector!
Clear-Flex is your solution when you need flexible connectors, which are static-dissipative, EC1935/FDA-acceptable, highly clear… or all three!
Best of all, Clear-Flex outlasts rubber and fabric sleeves by 10 to 1 in the demanding application of processing dry, abrasive materials!
Clear-Flex is available in a variety of shapes, including seamless tubing, spliced sleeves and connectors, and even moulded, corrugated sleeves.
The right rubber compound makes all the difference in terms of durability and wear.
JP Air Tech is your source for dozens of FDA and non-FDA rubber compounds.
With thousands of mandrel sizes in stock, JP Air Tech has the flexibility to provide you with the seamless rubber tubing designed for your process.
Corrugated sleeves are the traditional backbone of flexible connections.
JP Air Tech offers all three standard styles in a variety of lengths, diameters and compounds, including ultra-tough polyurethane… and we maintain a large inventory of the most common size and material versions for immediate shipment!
Made with 100% Neoprene polymer, this compound is the lowest durometer compound we currently market. It is highly loaded with oil to achieve the low durometer.
Typical physicals are:
Tensile lbs sq in.: 275
Ultimate Elongation %: 550
Shore A durometer: 15-20
Sheet can be custom made to other thicknesses as well as dimensions up to 48” x 48”.
For maximum flex life, choose the design sleeve with more corrugations for improved wear and durability. Ideal for all types of vibratory and gyratory motion including screeners, sifters, dryers, conveyors, hoppers and more. the only style available with the improved performance of clear polyurethane.
