Clemlite® System Offers

Economy And Safety —Literature Available

According to Clemco Industries,

Burlingame, Calif., the Clemlite™ system of abrasive blast hoses, cou- plings and nozzles can heighten pro- ductivity by lightening operators' loads by as much as 62 percent, while offering improved safety and economy.

Combining ultra-light weight with new levels of flexibility, Clem- lite Supa™ hose features IVi-inch

November, 1985 1 1 1 inner diameters plus end-of-hose outer diameter controlled to within '4 of an inch for tigher, safer, no- leak connections. Other hose fea- tures include a pin-pricked outer cover to prevent steam bubbles from forming between the cover and the Vt -inch thick inner tube; carbon treatment to dissipate static elec- tricity; and cement-sealed or rub- ber-capped ends to eliminate ply separation caused by entry of high- pressure air.

Made of lightweight nylon, the "twist-connect" Clemlite couplings employ a universal locking lug for easy attachment to hoses of differ- ent sizes, and incorporate Clemco's exclusive automatic-snap safety wire for added security. New inter- nal spirals guide hoses to a firm seal with the coupling's static conduct- ing gasket and—when blasting be- gins—grip inward to ensure a no- leak connection.

Clemlite venturi blast nozzles use one piece, sintered liners made of silicon carbide, a technological breakthrough in wear-resistant ma- terials that offers extended life in high-production environments, as well as benefits in reduced weight and cost. Tough urethane jacketing is used as insulation between the liner and the full-length aluminum sleeve, as well as on the outer nozzle surface, to protect against shock during on-the-job handling.
