No vacuum system operates without roughing hose connections. But like any scientific vacuum component, roughing hose specifications depend on the system and application. Scientific Vacuum Sales & Support, Inc. supplies roughing hose and the expertise you need to order the right material, size and configuration.
Roughing Hose Options
There are two main options for roughing hose:
- PVC roughing hose (which may be wire-reinforced or not)
- Stainless steel roughing hose
Both types of roughing hose are available in various diameters and with different end terminations (i.e. flange types and sizes). Both types of hose offer some degree of flexibility, although stainless steel roughing hose may have maximum bend specifications that should be carefully observed.
Considerations for Roughing Hose Purchase
If you are replacing roughing hose, finding the product you need may be simple. However, if you are building a new vacuum system or modifying an existing system for a new project, a number of factors should be considered, including:
- Pressure range to be achieved
- Length/distance to be covered
- The need for vibration isolation
- Types of existing or needed connections
