Antistatic transparent hose
Now a days Silicone elastomer based hoses are widely used mostly in the area of medical, pharmaceutical, biological, biotechnical, artificial cell culture industries due to its cent percent biocompatibility, high and low temperature resistance, solvent resistance properties, high pressure low of aggressive liquids and low leachability. The problem with conventional silicone hoses is the development of static electricity due to friction.
A static electric charge is developed whenever two adjacent surfaces are in frictional contact. Here charges are developed when fluids are passing through silicone hoses or due to electrical induction when tubes are close vicinity of some electrical instruments in medical, pharmaceutical, hospital sectors.
As silicones elastomers are insulator so that accumulated charges are stagnant followed by catastrophic static discharge leads to a fatal accident. This fatal accident comes with outputs like static shock or fire hazards. So removal of static charges are very important in those critical areas.
Antistatic transparent tube is most challenging area of development. Industries are developed antistatic transparent hoses. This hose are transparent as well as it can dissipate static charges if charges are developed due to friction or induction.
This transparent antistatic hose use both in high pressure application and as well as to reduce static discharge failure. Also transparency gives aesthetics look.
