EXAIR’s Flexible Stay Set Hoses are best used in applications where frequent repositioning of air nozzles is required. At the end of each production run, companies can quickly and easily move their air nozzles to a new position that closely matches the profile of the next part.
Flexible Stay Set Hoses are constructed of reinforced synthetic rubber to assure a long lifecycle and protection against ozone, weathering, and temperatures up to 158°F (70°C). They are available in a variety of lengths from 6″ (152mm) to 36″ (914mm). Two styles include one with a 1/4 NPT male brass fitting on each end, the other with a 1/4 NPT brass male fitting on one end and 1/8 NPT brass female fitting on the other. Energy efficient air nozzles, magnetic bases and safety air guns for use with the Flexible Stay Set Hoses are also available.
When mounted in close proximity to the application, the Stay Set Hose can be bent to aim the airstream at the target surface to be cleaned, dried or cooled. The hose has memory, which means it will not creep or bend. It will stay in the same position until it is physically moved by the operator.
