Hose used in the wood working industry are exposed to extreme conditions. Increased effeciency is also extremely important in professional wood processing. Aim: Machines and the follow-up units have to function as perfectly as possible and any downtime has to be minimized!
TIMBERDUC® – The hose solutions for the wood industry
Hoses are primarily used in the wood processing industry for suction devices – to absorb dust and chips. During the processing of wood, a trouble-free operation of the entire plant is essential. The hose has to meet this extreme conditions and must withstand the stresses during the wood working process. With regard to the industry-specific circumstances, the hose manufacturer NORRES has developed and optimized technical hoses that withstand these extreme conditions in the wood industry: TIMBERDUC® hoses are made of high-quality permanent-antistatic premium polyurethane (Pre-PUR®). Thus, these hoses types are abrasion-resistant, microbe- and hydrolysis-resistant, and also have a permanently antistatic wall, thus extending the service life and reducing the risk of failure.
Best hose insert in the wood processing industry
Tubes used in extraction systems in the wood processing industry must be particularly suitable for the throughput of abrasive materials. Since wood dust or wood chips are flammable bulk materials, an antistatic hose must be used for the extraction. During the conveyance process, an electrostatic charge can occur due to friction on the wall material, which can be discharged with a spark transition and thus the risk of the wood dust igniting. NORRES Tubes for wood processing, such as the TIMBERDUC® PUR 532 AS or TIMBERDUC® PUR 533 AS, are abrasion-resistant, flame-retardant and antistatic. The abrasion resistance and the associated long life service of both hoses confirm their special suitability. In addition to the functionality, the handling of the mechanical part hose is an important factor in everyday use. The TIMBERDUC® PUR 531 AS also has high flexibility and low weight. Both features also allow an easy handling and quick assembly at the respective extraction system. NORRES TIMBERDUC® PUR 531 AS, 532 AS and 533 AS are flame-retardant according to DIN 4102-B1 and do have permanently antistatic wall with an electrical and surface resistance <109 Ω. In addition, these hose types are certified according to TRGS 727 and ATEX 2014/34 / EU. They are therefore approved for the pneumatic transport of combustible dust and bulk solids.
TIMBERDUC® PUR 532 CNC – Especially for CNC machines
The TIMBERDUC® PUR 532 CNC has been specially developed for use on CNC machines and CNC machining centers. It is composed of industry leading product characteristics: It is highly abrasion-resistant, highly flexible and compressible 4: 1, flame-retardant according to DIN 4102-B1 and meets the safety requirements of the German Holz-BG. The TIMBERDUC® PUR 532 CNC can be used in a temperature range of -40°C to 90°C, short time to 125°C.
