Novaflex Extruded Thermo-Plastic Urethane (TPU) Vacuum Hose

Richmond Hill, ON - The Novaflex Group is proud to announce the availability of a new TPU VAC Hose specifically designed for material handling of abrasive media under vacuum. The TPU VAC Hose is a lightweight, flexible alternative to heavy-walled PVC and offers excellent abrasion resistance.

Novaflex's TPU VAC Hose product features include; all-weather construction - resistant to ozone attack, polyurethane wall for superior abrasion resistance and light weight, smooth inner tube for maximum product flow, external wear strip which prevents damage from abrasion, resistant to salt for underwater applications including aquaculture and most importantly, heavy-duty construction for full vacuum.

Hoses typically used in these applications are constructed of PVC or rubber - with their bulky, awkward properties and heavy weight, making for difficult handling in the field.

Novaflex's TPU VAC Hose is available in sizes ranging from 4" to 8", with larger sizes available upon request. Operating temperature range from -50°F to 200°F. Rated for full vacuum.
