Kuriyama of America Tigerflex™Voltbuster™ VLT-SD™ Series hose from Kuriyama of America, Inc. features an innovative design that effectively dissipates static to ground, helping prevent static build-up and reducing the potential for dangerous electrostatic discharges when transferring powders, pellets and other granular materials. The hose tube is constructed from highly abrasion resistant, food-grade polyurethane. Fabric reinforcement provides extra strength for suction and discharge. The grounding wire is encapsulated in a rigid helix on the exterior of the hose, eliminating the risk of contaminating the transferred materials.
