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.

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 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.Read more ›
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....Read more ›

This is the 3rd season I'll be using it on my lawn vac and it's been doing a fantastic job at picking up wet leaves and even some small twigs. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Lebo2012 L.

A bit pricey but nice and firm. Inside is smooth for good airflow and it does not collapse under suction.Published 6 months ago by MT
This hose looks very expensive until you see it. Construction quality looks very good and the hose is very flexible. I think it will give great service on a straw blower!Published 8 months ago by High Hat
