A Lightweight Option for Suction Applications

A Lightweight Option for Suction Applications

Newflex tubing from NewAge Industries provides an alternative to the bulk and weight of multi-layer rubber hoses for suction requirements. Newflex offers all-PVC construction along with flexibility and durability for a dependable product.

It is all-PVC construction and is reinforced with spirals that help the tubing flex without kinking, resist crushing and withstand vacuum applications as high as 28 in./Hg and works well in pressure applications.

Newflex is chemical and corrosion resistant and has a smooth inner surface for maximum flow of fluids, air, or granular materials. It also allows for visual contact with the flow, which is impossible with wrapped rubber hose.

Three styles - heavy, standard, and light duty - allow the user to choose the one that best fits his or her application. Industrial grade or food grade, made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA and 3-A standards, may also be selected.

Newflex PVC tubing is made in the U.S. and is well stocked in sizes ranging from 3/8" to 4" I.D. Custom sizes and colors are available, as well as cam operated couplings, barb-style fittings, and clamps for complete hose assemblies.
