Product Description

The Flexaust Flex-Tube PV PVC duct hose, used for dust control, ventilation, and fume exhaust applications, is a medium weight, clear PVC hose, reinforced with a rigid external black PVC helix; it resists external abrasion, crushing, and chemicals, and is very flexible for easy manipulation. A temperature range of 20 to 160 degrees F makes it suitable for applications such as woodworking fume extraction and dust collection. This duct hose is clear for viewing inside, and has a smooth interior to assure efficient air flow. Flexaust cuffs are available for this duct hose.

Duct hoses are flexible or rigid tubes that convey gases, liquids, and lightweight bulk materials from one location to another. They are made from an array of materials that range from polyurethane and thermoplastic rubber, to PVC and aluminum-coated fiberglass fabric, and are typically reinforced with a steel wire or rigid plastic helix, also known as a “spiral.” Duct hoses are secured with hose clamps or U-bolts, and two pieces of hose are joined with a hose connector. Common applications for duct hoses include heating and cooling, ventilation, fume and smoke exhaust, vacuum cleaning, moving chips and shavings, handling bulk packing materials, and water and waste discharge.

Flexaust manufactures flexible hose, metal ducting, and accessories for industrial and commercial applications. The company, founded in 1938 and headquartered in San Diego, CA, is part of the international Schauenburg Group.

The quality of this hose exceeded my hopes for a quality hose that could connect my leaf vacuum to the lawn mover chute. I used a 12 foot section to make the connection hoping this hose would work. And work it does. It is stiff enough to do the job and clear enough that I can see the material passing through the hose. Because I purchased 25 feet I also have a spare but the quality of the hose makes me think that I will not need to replace it any time soon. I recommend the hose and the supplier to anyone needing a leaf vacuum replacement hose.

This hose has a heavy duty spiral plastic stiffener over a much lighter duty flexible clear plastic membrane. Over all it is pretty rugged from a crushing standpoint. accidentally stepping on it won't destroy it, but the plastic membrane is vulnerable to piercing. IN regards to durability it is better than most.

However it is a just a teeny wee bit on the small side in diameter. It is a bear to slip onto metal fittings. I even tried using soapy water to make the fitting slippery and a heat gun to soften the plastic and still I was barely able to coax it onto my Delta dust collector by an inch or so. I'd like to see 3 or more inches engaged, but being tough to put on, it is just as tough to get back off, so falling off in use isn't likely to be an issue.

In my particular shop space is a premium, so a lot of my large tools are on dollies and I pull them out when I need to use them, thus they are not permanently attached to the dust collector system. I just transfer the hose over to the tool I'm using at the time. The tight fitting of this hose makes that impractical.

I know about grounding against static electricity buildup in a dust collector system. It is important for avoiding sparks that can actually cause fine sawdust to ignite and possibly even explode. I have never witnessed any static electricity buildup in any dust collection system until I used this hose. This hose is like a static electricity generator! After only a few minutes of initial use the sawdust was attracted to and sticking on the outside of the hose like a magnet..... Hmmm....

I own the Agri-Fab Lawn Vacuum. The hose was to short for my 60" Zero-Turn mower so I started shopping around and came across this item. It's exactly the same hose that was purchased with the Vacuum but longer. It's perfect for my needs, I cut it to the length I need for the Zero turn and will use the left over hose for a hand held setup. I would absolutely recommend this item.

Some flexible tubing is too flexible, too "squishy." This causes the tube to collapse lengthwise when vacuum is applied leading to reduced airflow. This flexible tubing bends, but does not collapse lengthwise so remains reasonably smooth. The tubing is heavy and durable.

I use this hose to connect woodworking tools to my dust collection system. I've purchased all sorts of hose over the years including the top brands like kanaflex, santoprene (now foxiflex I think) and flexhaust as well as many other cheaper hoses which mostly fall in a general category I'll call crap. This Flex-Tube hose is about the best I've seen. It has a very sturdy external rib, is pretty transparent, and quite flexible even in the 6" size I bought. But there are a couple things worth knowing if you plan to use it in a woodshop dust collection environment. And, no I'm not talking about the so-called risks of pvc for dust collection.

The issues you might want to know about are what it will or won't connect to and how. So, for starters, it WILL FIT OVER typical SNAPLOCK type metal pipe used in dust collection. It might take a little lube but it will go on and can be secured with a clamp. It WILL NOT FIT OVER PVC pipe whether that is schedule 40, SDR 35 (ASTM 3034) or Sewer & Drain (S&D or ASTM 2729). All these pvc pipes have the same OD and there is no way this hose can be slipped, stretched or otherwise coerced to fit over it. No way.

I had visions of putting my hose ends INSIDE PVC pipe fittings and securing them there with caulk and then using those fittings as quick-connects onto my PVC pipe ducts. There are references to doing this in a number of woodworking forums but I can see now that approach applies only to cheap hoses. The ribs on this hose are far too big. This hose WILL NOT FIT INSIDE PVC FITTINGS. I've only checked with the 6" hose I bought but I'm quite sure this will be the case for 4" hose as well. My first thought was that I could force it in there. Yeah, right.

After rubbing a hole in the original hose on my lawn vacuum - I search for a replacement and found this - works great - a little stiff at first - but after pulling on it and working with it - got it clamped into place and now good as new!

I purchased 25' x 4" Flex-Tube PV PVC Duct Hose so I could connect my various woodworking machines to a central dust collection system. The item was shipped from Flexaust, its manufacturer, promptly. I received it in good condition. I cut the Flex-Tube to a variety of needed lengths. I found that it cut easily with a utility knife and wire cutters. The Flex-Tube fitted snugly to my 4" blast gates and fittings without undue effort. Four inch Clamps secured these connections. I wrapped the Flex-Tube with 14 gauge bare copper wire which grounded the Flex-Tube; thus reducing any problems I might have otherwise encountered with static electric charges. However, I forget to ground the Flex-Tube drop at my planer and observed fine wood dust accumulating on the outside to the Flex-Tube - convincing me, as others have noted, static electric charge does build up on this product and is readily controlled by proper grounding. I believe the smooth interior wall greatly reduces air resistance, improving dust collection performance. I also believe that the Flex-Tube will offer durability over time, although, at this time, my opinion is based on the weight of the product and the thickness of the walls and the exterior reinforcing ribs. I would recommend the product for anyone seeking to enhance their dust collection by upgrading to a smooth walled flexible duct. It is very affordable when compared to other flexible duct hoses I investigated.
