Flat Hoses and Filters
PVC (vinyl) ventilation hoses are produced for a whole host of applications worldwide. Flexible ventilation ducts with various lengths and diameters, used for air supplies in mines, represent one of the key areas in which these hoses are used. However, they also are found in tunnels and working areas that are at risk of explosion. In most cases, the aim of the aeration process is to dilute the explosive methane gas so that it becomes a non-explosive, non-flammable mixture, or to remove dust after blasting. It goes without saying that safety is of the utmost priority in this situation.
Overpressure air ducts must be able to withstand a pressure test of up to 16,000 Pa, while universal designs for negative pressure must be able to withstand up to 9,000 Pa. Overlap welding machines from Leister are the tools that can guarantee the seam strength required in these applications. The VARIANT T1 welds a seam width of 40 mm – the most commonly required width – in a way that ensures long-lasting tightness. This versatile machine operates at up to 18 meters (59 feet) per minute, making the VARIANT T1 an unparalleled choice in its class. Despite this outstanding performance, it weighs just 22 kg (49 lbs.). Not only is it known for its outstanding performance, but it also is very easy to handle, and all the relevant parameters can be monitored and controlled using the e-Drive operating concept. Other machines such as the UNIPLAN E are ideal for smaller hoses. In these applications, Leister hot-air hand tools also have proven to be an excellent choice for details and complicated connections.
