Flo-Lined

Treatment to Tube and Pipe for preventing “Angel Hair” & “Snake Skin” in plastics conveying systems

Theory Behind Flo-Lining

  • The interior of tube or pipe has a hammered finish applied to it.
  • The finish is extremely irregular without sharpness encountered in sandblasting.
  • Testing has proven that the surface hardness increased as much as 10% due to the hammered stress.
  • Conveying lines which utilize aluminum alloys will work harden, therefore increasing the life of the textured surface.
  • When originally tested the hammered finish scored so low that the tests were repeated several times to be certain that the generation of fines, fluff and streamers were consistent. *
  • Aluminum or stainless steel tube/pipe are available for lining.
