DALATEC'S DESIGN AND ENGINEERING CAPABILITY IN COLLABORATION WITH ISL PRODUCTS PROVIDES CUSTOM COMPONENTS AND CABLE ASSEMBLIES.
In over the past 40 years of component manufacturing, we have come across some very unique projects at the component level involving manufacturers of medical devices. We have worked with small teams of research scientists at universities as well as midsize and large global companies alike. For Cable assemblies, we were fortunate enough to work with a small group of research scientists at Case Western Reserve University on a program in Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) and Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). While the program was in its infancy.
Flexaust has introduced a new, clear and lightweight, static dissipative polyurethane hose that can replace heavier PVC and polyethylene conductive hoses in many fume and dust collection applications.
Flexaust Flx-Thane® LD-SD Static Dissipative Polyurethane Hose is clear, highly flexible, and compressible, making it ideally suited for a wide range of dust collection and fume extraction applications. Featuring the inherent abrasion resistance and superior tear strength of polyurethane, this lightweight hose is reinforced with a bronze coated spring wire helix.
Manufactured from FDA approved materials, Flexaust Flx-Thane® LD-SD Static DissipativePolyurethane Hose is available in 2” to 12” I.D. sizes with wall thickness of .020” (2” is .015”) and standard 25 ft. lengths. Providing 108 x 1010 Ohms/Sq. surface resistivity, it operates over a -65°F to 225°F range. A 4” dia. hose has a 3.75” bend radius and 4:1 compression ratio.
Flexaust Flx-Thane® LD-SD Static Dissipative Polyurethane Hose is priced according to size and quantity. Samples and pricing offered upon request.
Dalatec has seen many new requirements from hospitals and pharmacies that need cleanroom consumables, wipers, swabs, mops and disinfectants for their required sterile environments. The United States Pharmaccpeida (USP) has developed standards for compounding in sterile environments. These standards help compounding practitioners adhere to widely acknowledged, scientifically sound procedures and practices, and facilitate the delivery of consistent and good-quality prepared medicines to patients. State Boards of Pharmacy may adopt these USP standards into their regulations.
The objective of USP <797> is to describe conditions and practices to prevent harm, including death, to patients that could result from:
Excessive bacterial endotoxins,
Variability in the intended strength of ingredients,
Chemical and physical contaminants,
Incorrect type or quality of ingredients in Compounded Sterile Preparations (CSPs).
USP <797> provides practice and quality standards for all persons who prepare CSP drugs and nutrients and all places they are prepared. They require that the preparation of CSPs occur in ISO Class 5 (Class 100) environments, buffer areas of ISO Class 7 (Class 10,000), and ante-areas of ISO Class 8 (Class 100,000). Achieving and maintaining these cleanroom environments requires new procedures and protocols. ITW Texwipe® has been the cleaning technology leader in controlled environments for more than four decades. We have the advice, tools and products for such USP <797> requirements as:
Cleaning ISO Class 5 surfaces every shift,
Cleaning counters, work surfaces and floors daily,
Cleaning walls, ceilings and shelves monthly,
Cleaning supplies while transferring them to clean areas,
Spraying and wiping gloves throughout the shift,
Cleaning supplies in the controlled environment,
Texwipe has put together a chart showing the consumable products (wipers swabs mops and disinfectants) that is provided for cleaning to be compliant to USP 797 compounding in a sterile environment.
Two years ago, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions purchased a liquid silicone company headquartered in Switzerland, which provided silicone extrusion and silicone molding, all in a clean room facility. The facility in Stein am Rhein, Switzerland and another in Northborough, Mass., allows the company to manufacture and design two-part Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) devices and components for the medical, biotech, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries.
Liquid silicone rubber is best suited to life science applications because it features matchless inertness and bio compatibility, which should be considered when factoring in potential bacteria growth and alleviating contamination. Silicone rubber is compatible with human beings and its mechanical properties are highly suitable for dynamic applications where accuracy, consistency and longevity are required.
Features and benefits:
Facilities: LSR Center of Excellence in Switzerland
Global LSR manufacturing footprint in Europe, North America and China

Applications requiring condutive, resistive, dissipative or grounding capability:
How many of you count yourselves “totally confused” when it comes to explaining any of the following:
Levels of Static Electricity “Resistivity”
Ohms/Square Surface Resistivity
Well, if you said yes to any or all of the above, count yourself in the majority of the people in our industry.
What we are going to attempt to do with this paper is to filter this “confusion” down to a level of understanding for all. The better we all understand, the more of the “valuable, higher priced products” we will all be able to sell.
1 10? Ohms/Square Surface Resistivity: Anything with a 10 with another little number in superscript followed by something like Ohms/Square makes my eyes glaze over. So, let’s ignore the Ohms/Sq. for now, and just say that this is nothing more than a “Frame of Reference for Measurement” like a ruler. Just remember, “the Higher the little number, the Higher the Resistance meaning that the Material is Less Conductive.”
2 Levels of Static Electricity Resistivity: Here we are talking about “Terminology” that differentiates how quickly, or effectively an electrical charge passes through a material to ground. The only words we will need to know right now are “Insulative”, “Antistatic”, “Static Dissipative”, and “Conductive”.
1 Insulative: Means that the material is pretty much totally “NonConductive” which means that it does not allow the flow of electrons through its bulk. A good example of this is electrical wire. There’s definitely a charge that goes through the wire, but it won’t shock us because it can’t pass through the covering
2 Antistatic: This is at the lower end of materials that allow a static charge to dissipate. Antistatic additives are commonly used to reduce static build up in certain thermoplastics upon which the static would cause the attraction of dust to the surface area. Examples are: The clear lens on your automobile’s speedometer, and the tinted lens that covers your IR detector on your VCR/DVD remote.
3 Static Dissipative: This is material that allows generated static electricity to transfer through its bulk to ground, or other conductive objects. This is the range that Flexaust’s “FlxThane SD” falls under.
4 Conductive: This range of material includes the conductive carbon black blend of PTFE found in Teflon® Hose, to extremely conductive Metals. Electrical charges flow across or through its volume easily. Flexaust’s Genesis “DPZC” and “ConductOFlex” are “Conductive” to 103 105 ohms/sq.
THE KEY POINT THAT IS MOST MISUNDERSTOOD – HOW IT WORKS:
I have had more than one distributor tell me that they saw no reason to pay the premium for the Flexaust FlxThane SD, when they could just sell their customer the FlxThane MD and ground the wire at both ends. The confusion lies in the lack of understanding that the Static Charge has to get to the wire somehow. The “MD” Urethane Compound is “Insulative” and the Charge cannot pass through the material to the wire to Ground. Whereas the “SD” Urethane Compound is “Static Dissipative” which allows the Charge to bleed through the wall of the hose to the wire, which goes to Ground. Simple when you think of it, and easy to explain. Now make the sale!
For the more information – see the following : LEVELS OF ELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY & OHMS/SQUARE
4. – Conductive: <106 ohms/sq. (Flexaust’s Genesis “DPZC” and “ConductOFlex” both are rated “Conductive” at 103 – 105 Ohms/Sq)
This Table more clearly shows the different degrees of Resistivity:
When it comes to UL 94V hoses
The first "2" YouTubes below show UL94V rated (flame ratardant) and how they react to an open flame from a propane tourch.
Some of the hoses featured are Flexaust's PVR-3 and CWGP and the 2nd YouTube is the FSP5
The third YouTube is an example of a conductive application with the flour dust catching fire is just an example of what can happen when a dust explosion occurs. It is meant to show the plant maintenance people (actually to help sales people explain to plant maintenance personnel) the hazards and potentials of dust causing an explosion that can kill people. It then would follow that whatever hose or ducting the maintenance people use to control the dust in their factory, they should be using something that will minimize and control static electricity, which could spark and cause the dust to ignite. The hoses of choice for this application are Conductoflex, DPZ-C, and FlexThane-SD.
“Real life example - I once called on a factory in PA that manufactured that white stuff you find in little packets with electronic equipment to cut down on humidity. I think it's called vermiculite, but I'm not sure. Anyway, the maintenance guy would walk around with a PVC hose and vacuum up the dust. He was shocking the *** out of himself just through the static electricity that would build up in his hose. I switched him to FlexThane-SD and the problem was solved.”
Here is an example of our Flexaust PV crushproof hose:
