Newflex tubing from NewAge Industries provides an alternative to the bulk and weight of multi-layer rubber hoses for suction requirements. Features include all-PVC construction, flexibility, and durability. When applications call for vacuum or suction, wrapped rubber hose is sometimes used. It can be heavy, bulky, costly, and quite stiff, depending on its construction (number of layers, type of rubber material, and reinforcement). Newflex addresses these concerns with its all-PVC construction. It is reinforced with spirals that help the tubing flex without kinking, resist crushing, and withstand vacuum applications as high as 28 in./Hg. It works well in pressure applications as well. Newflex is chemical and corrosion resistant, and has a smooth inner surface for maximum flow of 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 – are available. Industrial grade or food grade, made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA and 3-A standards, may also be selected.
