Silicone Vacuum Hose
Polyester and wire reinforced platinum cured silicone vacuum hose (60° Shore A hardness).
Manufactured using a platinum cured silicone elastomer which is compositionally compliant with FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 and can meet up to USP Class VI standards. These hoses are supplied in 4m lengths, with a temperature range of -60°C to +200°C (+220°C spot) in standard form and bore sizes available from ¼“ (6.3mm) to 6“ (152.4mm).
The wall construction is made of plies of knitted polyester cloth impregnated with silicone and a stainless steel wire reinforcing helix embedded between the plies. The inner bore of such hoses are smoothly lined for clear and low friction and finished with a smooth outer skin of silicone for complete integrity. This range also incorporates wire reinforcement at 4 turns per inch, resulting in extreme flexibility and the ability to handle increased operating pressures.
Standard colour is translucent. These hoses are ideally suited for clean industry process/production use.
