Schaumberg, Illinois -- Kuriyama of America Inc. has introduced a new, transparent, heavy-duty polyurethane hose for handling food-grade materials.
The Tigerflex Series 2020S features an anti-static liner designed to work well in both humid and dry climates. It also features fabric reinforcement, embedded grounding wire in the helix to prevent contamination, and has good cold weather flexibility, Kuriyama said 23 Feb.
The US-based hose manufacturer said it uses newly developed thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) materials in the anti-static liner which are "permanently static dissipative" and also uses an extra thick liner for a longer product life. (RD)"
