How Heavy Duty Corrugated Polyurethane Hoses Contribute to Energy Efficiency

Every component in your vacuum setup plays a crucial role in determining how effectively your system operates. One often overlooked but highly significant component is the vacuum hose assembly. At James J. Scott, LLC, we specialize in manufacturing commercial and industrial vacuum hose assemblies, and we are proud to offer heavy-duty corrugated polyurethane hoses, specifically Flexaust FlexStat® hose, which can significantly contribute to energy efficiency in your operations.

The Power of Polyurethane

Polyurethane hoses have gained recognition in the industry for their durability and flexibility. They are an ideal choice for heavy-duty applications that demand reliable performance. The corrugated design of these hoses adds another layer of strength and durability, making them capable of withstanding harsh industrial environments.

One of the standout features of our heavy-duty corrugated polyurethane hoses is their ability to maintain a consistent diameter even when bent or flexed. This characteristic reduces the risk of kinking and blockages in the hose, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted flow of materials and air. As a result, your vacuum system operates at peak performance, which directly translates to energy efficiency.

Reducing Energy Consumption

Energy efficiency is a crucial concern for industrial facilities as it not only reduces operational costs but also minimizes the environmental impact of your operations. Let's explore how our heavy-duty corrugated polyurethane hoses, like the Flexaust FlexStat®, contribute to energy efficiency:

1. Minimal Friction Loss

The interior surface of our polyurethane hoses is designed to minimize friction. This low-friction characteristic means that air and materials can flow through the hose with less resistance. As a result, your vacuum system requires less power to maintain the desired suction and airflow, reducing energy consumption and ultimately cutting down on operating costs.

2. Durability and Longevity

Investing in durable hoses is a smart choice for any industrial application. Our heavy-duty corrugated polyurethane hoses are built to last, which means you won't need to replace them frequently. This not only saves you money on hose replacement costs but also reduces the environmental impact of producing and disposing of hoses. Long-lasting hoses contribute to sustainability and energy efficiency in the long run.

3. Equivalent Performance to Leading OEMs

We understand that many industries rely on leading OEMs like Gardner Denver®, Hoffman®, and Lamson® for their vacuum system components. That's why we offer hose assemblies that are equivalent to Gardner Denver®, Hoffman®, and Lamson® part numbers, including AFW7015101, AFW7015151, AFW7015251, and AFW7515501. Our hose assemblies deliver comparable performance and durability, making them a cost-effective alternative that doesn't compromise on quality.


When it comes to industrial vacuum systems, energy efficiency is a goal that every facility should strive to achieve. Heavy-duty corrugated polyurethane hoses, such as the Flexaust FlexStat® hose we offer at James J. Scott, LLC, play a crucial role in helping you reach this goal. With minimal friction loss, exceptional durability, and equivalent performance to leading OEMs, our hoses can significantly contribute to energy efficiency while ensuring the reliable operation of your vacuum system.
