In an industry where cleanliness, precision and quality are paramount, Hydraquip’s 316L Stainless Steel ultra high vacuum hoses meets this criteria along with a range of industry standard and specialist design flanges and connections to suit the hose. This particular ultra high vacuum hose is manufactured with convolutions formed in such a way that the hose will not collapse under extreme vacuum whilst still meeting the ability to flex and compensate for any movement.
All KF/CF/ISO fittings are available. Ultra high vacuum hoses are individually tested using a helium mass spectrometer leak detector to sensitivity better than 1 x 10-9 mbar l/sec ensuring that any assembly destined for this industry is 100% tested before it leaves the factory and giving customers the confidence of a leak free connection.
Ultra high vacuum hose assemblies are available in bore sizes from ¼” up to 8”, with a wide range of end connections available in a choice of either mild steel or stainless steel such as threaded males and females, fixed and swivel flanges, cam fittings and adaptors.
