Selecting the Right Hose for Your Dust Collection Application

Nordfab Ducting offers a variety of hose product options - allowing you to find the best fit for your dust collection applications. These product choices include rubber and metal hose and a variety of end types.

All Nordfab hose is sold in 5' increments. See our individual product pages for information regarding maximum lengths.


Rubber Hose

Nordfab rubber hose for dust collection - black hose and clear hoseRubber hose is generally good for most standard-duty applications where high abrasion, high temperatures, or chemical resistance are not considerations.

Nordfab Black Hose is thermoplastic flexible rubber hose reinforced with a spring steel wire helix. It is our most frequently applied hose product.

Nordfab Clear Hose is polyurethane flexible rubber hose reinforced with a bronze coated spring steel wire helix.


Nordfab Static Dissipative HoseNordfab Static Dissipative Urethane Clear Hose is a medium weight static dissipative polyurethane hose reinforced with a bronze coated spring steel wire helix. This hose has:

  • great abrasion resistance
  • high tear strength
  • superior chemical resistance
  • excellent flexibility, and
  • tolerance for applications with wide temperature ranges.

Bridge Clamps or Hose Clamps should be used for connecting our rubber hose and Static Dissipative Urethane Hose.

Hose Adapters should typically be installed to connect rubber hose to other ductwork. See the illustration at the bottom of this page for end style options.
