NewAge Industries' heat-formed tubing eliminates fitting connections and reduces flow restrictions
NewAge Industries offers tubing and hose that’s heat formed into specific shapes. Parts are custom designed and produced using heat and special tooling.
Heat-formed shapes eliminate extra fittings and clamps, their potential for leaks and their inventory. With a heat-formed shape, only one part is needed instead of separate pieces that must bend around or through other equipment and machinery.
Turns and twists can cause some tubing and hose to kink, thereby cutting off fluid or air flow. A formed piece that’s custom made for a specific use greatly reduces the risk of kinking and flow impediment. Heat-formed shapes also ease and speed installations because there are fewer connections to make. They reduce the need for cumbersome fittings and clamps, which can be critical in restricted space applications.
A variety of shapes are possible, from single elbows and curves to parts involving coiled sections, flared ends, and multiple twists and bends. Materials that can be heat formed include PVC, polyurethane, nylon and other thermoplastics. Both unreinforced tubing and braid-reinforced hose may be used. Other customizations include thermally bonded tubing; hose assemblies; coiling, cutting and printing; and dip-molded tubing.
