The types of hose below have been selected as the proven choice by hundreds of customers.  These are the vacuum hoses that get consistently re-ordered.


G-Vac Thm
G-Vac

G-Vac Standard Duty Flex Hose

G-Vac is PVC hose without static grounding and so it is suitable for only a small number of commercial type applications.




 
 


Pros:
Very inexpensive
Very flexible
Good durability
Smooth exterior so it pulls easily around equipment




 
 


Cons:
Not static conducting
Available in 50 ft lengths max.

Diameter: 1.25", 1.5", and 2.0"
Lengths cut to order
Cuffs extra

B-Flex Standard Duty Flex Hose

B-Flex is a tremendous hose for many light industrial applications where static conductivity is not a problem. Unlike G-Vac, this hose works with many applications without "adding" static.  It is a clear PVC hose with a white external helix.


 
 
 
 
 

Pros:

Inexpensive 
Very flexible
Food grade
Smooth interior
Good durability, though not as good as G-Vac


 

Cons:
Not static conducting, but much better than G-Vac.

Diameter: 1.5", 2.0", 2.5", and 3.0"
Lengths cut to order, 100 ft. maximum
Cuffs not available



Urevac Thm
Urevac-2

Urevac-2 Heavy Duty Flex Hose

Urevac-2 is a popular choice, but it's generally used for larger sizes, because it is durable for its weight and flexible. 0.125" of urethane tubing supported with a PVC helix makes this the best choice for wood chips, grains, and other materials for which Type 1100 is suitable, but too heavy.




Pros:

Smooth interior
Very flexible, lightweight, and durable









Cons:
Expensive
Not suitable for sharp metal chips
Not static conducting
13" Hg. vacuum limit
Pronounced exterior helix makes pulling this hose around corners a chore

Diameter: 1.5" to 4.0" 
60 ft lengths only
Low temperature flexible



Type 1100 Thm
Type 1100

Type 1100 Heavy Duty Flex Hose

Type 1100 (static dissipating) is our most popular choice. Very tough and durable, it is still quite flexible, but the 2" size may not be suitable for sustained hand work in tight places. 

Though this is an industrial duty hose, and is not heavy, some women may find that the 2" hose is too cumbersome for them. Men will have no trouble with 3", though the 4" size is getting pretty heavy. 

This is a PVC - rubber blended hose that relies on its high carbon content to dissipate static, so it is good for most applications where static is a problem with PVC hose, but not all.






Pros:
Not expensive
Quite flexible given the high durability
Smooth interior
Static dissipating

Cons:
Static dissipating, not static conducting

Diameter: 1.25" to 8.0" 
Lengths cut to order, 100 ft. maximum
Suitable for full vacuum

BG-Flex Standard Duty Grounded Hose

B-Flex (static conducting) is suitable for most standard industrial applications. It features an excellent combination of flexibility (but not as flexible as type 4050), weight , price and durability; however this product will not be durable enough for heavy use applications. 

It is a clear PVC hose with white external helix and an embedded braided copper wire.






Pros:
Cheap
Very flexible
Food grade
Smooth interior
Reasonable durability given the excellent flexibility

Cons:
May not be durable enough for heavy use applications, but larger diameters are better.

 

Diameter: 1.5", 2.0", 2.5", and 3.0"
Lengths cut to order, 100 ft. maximum
Cuffs not available



Type 4050 Thm
Type 4050

Type 4050 Standard Duty Grounded Hose

Type 4050 is a static conducting hose with static dissipating cuffs, so it works with most (but not all) static producing materials. It is the most flexible, lowest weight of the static conducting hoses, but at the cost of moderate durability. It is a clear PVC hose with white external helix.






Pros

Cheap
Lightweight
Super-flexible
Static conducting








Cons

Moderately durable (good for clean-rooms and pharmaceutical de-dusting)
Can not be cut to non-standard lengths

Diameter: 1.5" and 2.0" only
Lengths: 10 ft, 15 ft, 25 ft, 50 ft only



Type WE Thm
Type WE

Type WE Heavy Duty Grounded Hose

Type WE is a clear, food grade, PVC hose with a copper ground wire and is often used in the plastics industry. Before the advent of B-Flex, this was the least expensive option for static conducting hose. It is somewhat heavier and much less flexible (especially in the winter) than Spec 1100, but still quite usable.








Pros:

Moderately flexible, durable, and lightweight
Food grade
Smooth interior
Static conducting






Cons:

Too stiff in the winter in some buildings
Copper wire breaks before the hose does compromising the ground

Diameter: 1.25" to 4.0"
Lengths cut to order, up to 100 ft
No cuffs available
Suitable for full vacuum



Type SW Thm
Type SW

Type SW Heavy Duty Grounded Hose

Type SW is a rubber hose with an integral braided stainless ground wire. Certainly the heaviest of the hoses mentioned so far, it is also the most durable. While this hose is not flexible enough for working with hand tools, it is perfectly acceptable for heavy floor cleaning.









Pros:

Very durable
Moderately lightweight
Smooth interior and exterior
Static conducting
Suitable for steel chips




Cons:

Not cheap
Not flexible enough for hand work

Diameter: 1.5", 2.0" and 3.0" only
Lengths: 10 ft, 15 ft, 25 ft, 50 ft only
Suitable for full vacuum



Type VF Thm
Type VF

Type VF Heavy Duty Grounded Hose

Vinylife (Type VF) is a great product, but it is expensive. It has excellent durability, excellent flexibility, and is not much heavier than Spec 1100. Its smooth exterior makes this easy to handle, and it is static conducting. Comes in a few safety colors as well as clear.











Pros:
Very flexible and durable
Moderately lightweight
Food grade
Smooth interior and exterior
Static conducting



Cons:

Not cheap

Diameter: 1.0" to 3.0"
Lengths: 10 ft, 15 ft, 25 ft, 35 ft, and 50 ft only
Suitable for full vacuum



Superwhip Thm
Superwhip

Superwhip Heavy Duty Grounded Hose

Superwhip is used as a work end for vacuum systems using 4" hose and larger.  It's similar in construction to SW hose, but with a pure gum rubber inner liner for the best abrasion resistance.

Primarily used for aluminum chips or other chips that "cut" other hoses. The flexibility is quite a bit better than SW hose, because gum is softer. Very durable.  The lightest weight, most flexible, most durable large size hose.







Pros:
Very durable
Moderately flexible and lightweight
Smooth interior and exterior
Static conducting

Cons:
Expensive ( but its a great choice).

 

Diameter: 2.5"" to 8.0"
Lengths: 20 ft and 50 ft only
4" and under, suitable for full vacuum
6" and 8", suitable for 20" Hg.
