Technical Details

Technical Details

This is a low pressure hose solution with a maximum recommended working pressure of 30 PSI. For increased working pressures, consider instead the reinforced PVC hose.

The hose remains highly flexible without collapsing, even at low temperatures. The ideal temperature range falls between -20°C and 55°C. The hosing can withstand occasional usage of up to 65°C.

Clear PVC tube is an economical and low maintenance solution. Its excellent flow rates prevent sediment build up, reducing the need for monitoring and replacements. As the tube is clear, it is easy to identify any blockages and replace that section with a new length attached with interconnects. The tube is also highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, acids and alkalis.
