The polyurethane vacuum hose is a very flexible, lightweight, and abrasion resistant vacuum hose. It has an outer diameter of 58mm and an inner diameter of 51mm. Due to its bigger size it can handle a bigger airflow in comparison with standard vacuum hose with a 32mm inner diameter. Because there is less air resistance the 58mm vacuum hose also prevents unnecessary cutoff of larger airflow created by stronger vacuum machines.
Inside the polyurethane vacuum hose there is a copper plated spiral than can be grounded. In some applications the use of a cyclone filter can lead to the build-up of static electricity. The zink plated spiral makes it possible to ground the hose, reducing or preventing static electricity.
- 2,5 meter with vacuum nozzle;
- 3 meter with vacuum nozzle;
- 6 meter with vacuum nozzle.
- Cyclone filter model 3 – connector with hose clamp needed;
- Cyclone filter model L – L reducer kit needed;
- Metal cyclone filter – hose clamp needed.
- Cyclone filter model 3: If you want to connect the 58mm polyurethane vacuum hose to cyclone filter model 3, you need a 50mm connector with hose clamp. The connector slides halfway into the side inlet of the cyclone filter and reduces the outer diameter to 50mm. 58mm hose with its 50mm inner diameter then slides over the connector. The hose clamp ensures a strong connection.
- Cyclone filter model L: The 58mm polyurethane vacuum hose can be connected to the L cyclone filter by using the L reducer kit. The kit consists of a 75mm>50mm reducer, and a 50mm connector with hose clamp. The reducer reduces the inner diameter of the filter from 75mm to 50mm. Next, the 50mm connector slides halfway into the 50mm opening of the reducer. Because the 58mm vacuum hose has an inner diameter of 50mm, it slides over the 50mm connector. With the included hose clamp the hose can be securely attached. In schematic order: L cyclone filter <– reducer <– connector <– 58mm vacuum hose.
- Metal cyclone filter: to connect the 58mm polyurethane vacuum hose to the metal cyclone filter, you only need a hose clamp. The top and side inlets of the metal cyclone filter allready have a 50mm outer diameter. The hose will slide right over it. A hose clamp is needed to secure the hose onto the inlet.
All cyclone filters, filter combinations, and filter sets state the amount and version of the connectors that are included. You can easily check whether enough are supplied or whether one or more extra connectors are required for your specific situation. Extra connectors can be ordered below.
- Material: polyurethane + copper;
- Colour: transparent;
- Outer diameter: 58mm;
- Inner diameter: 51mm;
- Reinforcement: copper spiral;
- Flexibility: 5/5 (1=stiff / 5=extreme flexible);
- Internal: ribbed;
- External: ribbed.
- The polyurethane vacuum hose can be grounded with the use of it copper plated spiral.
- The polyurethane vacuum hose owes its great flexibility to the copper spiral. Because the copper is wound into a long spiral, the hose will contract about 20% when in ‘rest position’. A hose of, for example, 5 meters is therefore 4 meters in rest position. The vacuum hose can easily be stretched to its 5 meters and will spring back when in rest position.
- Although the polyurethane 58mm vacuum hose is many times stronger than the PVC vacuum hose, it is advisable to opt for the PVC vacuum hose when filtering out very sharp material (including glass, metal, and very sharp stone grit). This is because the PVC vacuum hose has a smooth inside, so that abrasion wear is less likely to occur. The polyurethane hose is not smooth on the inside and therefore more suitable for wood chips and other bigger dust particles.
- Due to the smaller inner diameter of the side inlet of cyclone filter model 2, the 50mm connector cannot be inserted into it. Therefor, the 58mm polyurethane vacuum hose cannot be attached to cyclone filter model 2.
- All vacuum hoses are cut to size by ourselves. Because custom work is manual work, the actual length of the suction hose may be slightly different. We use a margin of 3%: a suction hose of 1 meter can therefore be 3 centimeter longer or shorter.
