Polyvinylchloride (PVC) Suction Hose

NEWFLEX reinforced suction hose is widely used throughout industry in both positive and negative pressure applications. Its advanced design allows the use of light-weight, corrosion-resistant PVC to replace bulkier and heavier ply-wrapped rubber hose.

NEWFLEX series 'FH' and 'FHS' are clear, allowing the user to have full visual flow of material. The Food Grade lines are made from FDA-approved ingredients suitable for food and beverage handling. The smooth interior is easily sterilized and cleaned. Both types have a vacuum rating of 28 in./Hg.

NEWFLEX series 'VFH' is produced from a clear FDA liner with an industrial grade white helix, which is not exposed to the hose I.D. It can handle light-duty pressure discharge, gravity feed, and moderate vacuum applications.
 

Advantages

  • 100% PVC construction
  • Spiral reinforcement made from rigid PVC to resist impact, crushing, and kinking
  • Lighter than ply-wrapped rubber and other similar hoses
  • Available in Food and Industrial Grades
  • Food Grade made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA and 3A standards
  • Smooth interior produces low friction loss permitting maximum flow
