NewAge Industries introduces the Vardex® PVC hose, well suited for fluid or air transfer. Made of clear, chemical-resistant PVC and reinforced with spiral steel wire for durability, the hose handles both pressure and full vacuum. Suitable applications include chemical transfer, air supply, coolant feeds, floor cleaning equipment, material handling, water feeds and discharge, vacuum lines, spray systems, and food and beverage supply lines. The wire reinforcement allows the hose to resist kinking, crushing, and collapse, even at full vacuum (29.9 in./Hg.). It offers a bend radius approximately four times the hose I.D., making it especially useful in applications where bends and turns are involved. There are nine sizes available from 1/4” to 2” I.D. Fabricated hose assemblies with permanently crimped-on fittings are available, along with a variety of other fittings and clamps in both plastic and metal.
