Flexibility is also an important factor when it comes to ducting. Not every facility will have the need for a straight duct pipe. There are always bends and corners to consider. In such instances, the rate of temperature resistance is important, but so too is the flexibility of the hose. A flexible hose can reduce costs, since extra parts are not needed and installation costs are minimized.
They are very useful in furnace Areas in ferro alloys for the purposes of transferring very hot air or gasses from one area to another.
Used in applications such as range hoods in Steel plants, furnaces in industrial spaces, automotive applications and more. However, it is important to know that not all flexible hoses for high temperature uses are created equal. Their exact degree of flexibility and temperature resistance range can depend on the materials that the hoses are made from. Different industries make use of different types of hose depending on what the job in question calls for. High temperature is a relative term and WILL mean very different things to different applications.
