Voltbuster Volt and VLT-SD Series (fabric reinforced) hoses by Tigerflex, feature a design that effectively dissipates static to ground, helping prevent static build-up and reducing the potential for dangerous electrostatic discharges. The hose tube is constructed from highly abrasion-resistant food-grade polyurethane to ensure the purity of transferred materials. The grounding wire is encapsulated in a rigid PVC helix on the exterior of the hose, safely eliminating the risk of contaminating the transferred materials. Voltbuster hoses were designed for high static applications, and transfer of powders, pellets, and granular materials. Use of “Cold-Flex” materials enables the hoses to remain flexible in sub-zero temperatures.
