More information

Pressure Rating:

Although Griplock is not a pressure rated hose, it can generally be expected to withstand pressures of up to 1 BAR (100 kpa) where the discharge from the hose is open ended.

Special Features:

A ‘floppy’ Griplock is available in the smaller diameters (up to 76mm I/D) which is ideal for cable protection. 

The ‘stiff’ version of our Griplock is constructed with a tighter section which improves the air tightness of the hose and gives it ‘stayput’ characteristics. 

Heavy Duty:

Heavy duty Griplock is made from a thicker strip for heavy duty applications and environments. Available in material from 0.3 / 0.8mm thick. 

Conical Griplock:     

We can manufacture our Griplock in a conical / tapered shape with a different I/D on either end. This can help reduce costs of expensive fittings and adaptors. Increasingly popular for all sorts of technical applications.

The Versatility and Efficiency of Stainless Steel Griplock-Type Flexible Tubing for Dust Extraction

When it comes to dust extraction systems, finding the right tubing solution is crucial for effective and efficient operation. One standout option that has gained significant popularity in recent years is stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing.

This innovative solution offers a range of benefits that make it a great choice for dust extraction applications. In this blog post, we will explore the reasons why stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing is an excellent solution for dust extraction needs.

Superior Strength and Durability for Dust Extraction Tubing

One of the key advantages of stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing is its exceptional strength and durability. The tubing is constructed using high-quality stainless steel, which provides excellent resistance against corrosion, chemicals, and extreme temperatures. This robustness ensures that the tubing can withstand the demanding conditions often encountered in dust extraction systems, including abrasive dust particles and high-velocity airflows. The longevity of the tubing minimises maintenance requirements and replacement costs, making it a cost-effective choice in the long run.

Flexibility and Easy Installation

Flexibility is a crucial factor when selecting tubing for dust extraction purposes. Stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing offers exceptional flexibility, allowing it to navigate around corners, obstacles, and tight spaces with ease. Its ability to bend and flex without compromising its structural integrity makes it a versatile solution that can adapt to various installation requirements. Additionally, the Griplock-type design facilitates simple and quick installation, saving time and effort during setup.

Leak-Free Performance

Effective dust extraction systems rely on maintaining airtight connections to prevent any leakage, which could lead to reduced efficiency and compromised air quality. Stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing ensures a reliable and leak-free performance. The interlocking mechanism of the Griplock system securely fastens the tubing, providing a tight seal at all connection points.

This feature helps to optimise airflow by minimising pressure drop, thereby improving overall dust extraction efficiency.

Enhanced Noise Reduction

Dust extraction systems can generate significant noise levels, which can be disruptive and unpleasant in the working environment. Stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing incorporates design features that contribute to noise reduction. The flexibility of the tubing helps to dampen vibrations and minimise noise transmission throughout the system. This feature enhances the overall comfort and safety of the workspace, making it a favourable choice for environments where noise control is essential.

Compatibility and Adaptability

Stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing is highly compatible with various dust extraction systems and equipment. It can be seamlessly integrated with different types of dust collectors, separators, hoods, and other components. Furthermore, the tubing is available in a range of diameters and lengths, allowing for customisation and adaptation to specific project requirements.

This versatility makes it an ideal choice for both new installations and retrofitting existing dust extraction systems.

Stainless steel Griplock-type flexible tubing offers an array of advantages that position it as an exceptional solution for dust extraction needs. Its strength, durability, flexibility, leak-free performance, noise reduction capabilities, and compatibility make it a highly efficient and reliable choice. By investing in high-quality tubing, such as the one offered by Whitehouse Flexible Tubing, industries can ensure an effective dust extraction system that promotes clean air, maintains productivity, and contributes to a safe working environment.
