What are the differences between PU and PVC steel wire vacuum hoses? Which is better?
Wire hose is a kind of industrial vacuum hose that appears in our lives with industrial vacuum cleaners. It is a type of hose. The common ones are PU material steel wire vacuum hose and PVC material steel wire vacuum soft So what is a PU steel wire vacuum hose? PVC should be clear to most people and I won’t say much. In addition, what is the difference between PVC and PU industrial vacuum hose? What are the advantages of industrial vacuum hose? Let me explain them one by one.
What is a PU steel wire vacuum hose?
PU steel wire dust suction hose is usually used for woodworking machinery dust suction and abrasion particulate material suction conveying pipe. PU material is polyurethane. It has the properties of chemical resistance, light weight and high wear resistance. PU steel wire dust suction hose has a wide range of applications in material transportation due to its strong wear resistance.
What are the differences between PVC steel wire vacuum hose and PU steel wire vacuum hose?
PU is the abbreviation of Polyurethane, and the Chinese name is polyurethane for short. The PU steel wire suction tube adopts spiral elastic steel wire to be firmly implanted into the wall of the tube to optimize the external fluidity. The commonly used wall thicknesses are 0.4mm, 0.6mm, 0.9mm, 1.2mm. Material: pipe wall (polyether-polyurethane, polyester-polyurethane) optional, spiral wire, elastic steel wire. It is widely used in machinery transportation pipes in the glass industry, wood industry, steel industry, plastic industry, mine pit, shipbuilding industry, cement industry, etc., as a tough protective tube. At the same time, food grade tubes can also be used in the food industry and the pharmaceutical industry. PU steel wire hose can better meet the transportation requirements of all walks of life.
PVC steel wire suction pipe is made of PVC synthetic material, and high-strength galvanized metal wire is spirally embedded in the inner wall of the flexible PVC pipe. PU pipe and PVC are not very different on the surface. They are both transparent and embedded with steel wire. However, there is a huge difference between the two in terms of performance.
From the point of view of the material, the vacuum tube made of PU material is more pure and transparent than the PVC tube. The steel wire embedded in the PU hose is copper-plated steel wire, which is more wear-resistant and stretch-resistant than the PVC vacuum tube. The steel wire of the hose is also thicker than the steel wire of the PVC suction pipe, which greatly extends the service life of the PU steel wire suction pipe. The service life of the PU hose is 7-10 times that of the PVC pipe. From the physical and chemical properties Look, PU hose has high corrosion resistance, pressure resistance, abrasion resistance, and high temperature resistance. These are far less than PVC pipes. In addition, PU hoses will not harden at very low temperatures in winter. It will not soften or turn yellow under high temperature in summer, which is unmatched by PVC pipes.
