Kink- and crush-resistant Vardex® hose for both pressure and vacuum applications are made of clear PVC with steel wire reinforcement and are said to be suitable for either fluid or air transfer. The hoses are said to combine the desirable properties of PVC (resistance to corrosion and abrasion, clarity, rubber-like flexibility, and outstanding flow characteristics) with the strength of steel. The wire reinforcement is said to allow the hose to resist kinking, crushing and collapse, even at full vacuum (29.9 inch/Hg), which is said to make it especially useful in applications where bends and turns are involved. The hose is said to eliminate the need for extra attachments involving fittings, clamps, separate pieces of hose, and the labor for assembly and installation. The hose is available from stock in nine sizes ranging from 1/4 inch to 2 inch ID. Custom options include fabricated hose assemblies with permanently crimped-on fittings, cut-to-length pieces, special sizes, formed shapes, and thermal bonding to other PVC tubing and hose. The company also stocks a variety of barbed fittings and various styles of clamps for use with Vardex. New Age Industries,
