If you need to deliver granular or powdery media, hose clamp will be better. Because it is easy to install and uninstall. Thus it can help to save cost. In another hand, it is convenient and cost saving. However, if you transfer water or gas, you can’t use hose clamp. Because it has poor seal property. Thus there will be leakage problem in gas or liquid transfer.
For general powder, gas and liquid media, it should be flange connect. Because the flange connection has tight seal. Then there will not be leakage problem. But this method costs much more than others. Besides, you can’t unload the flange once it connects to the PU flexible ducting hose.
If you connect a duct hose into another PU ducting hose, choose the spiral connection. Because it can play a sealing role. In addition, it can pass through powder, gas, liquid and other media. Besides, it can also withstand a certain pressure. But it has the same problem with flange connect that the cost is very high.
