Q:What is Vaccuflex?
A:Vaccuflex is a cap made of thermoplastic rubber that attaches to a vacuum hose, enabling the use of small diameter, flexible tubing. Vaccuflex turns your vacuum into a more versatile machine.
Q:What does the Vaccuflex kit contain?
A:The Vaccuflex kit contains two caps and fits the following hose diameters: 2 ½” hose, 1 7/8” hose, 1 1/2″ hose and 1 1/4” hose. The caps are made of durable, flexible, non-corrosive thermoplastic rubber, are ribbed on the inside for a snug fit, and allow breathing which helps reduce stress on the vacuum motor. The Vaccuflex kit also contains four pieces of flexible, vinyl tubing with the following interior dimensions: 2 feet of 5/8” tubing, 1 foot of ½” tubing, 1 foot of 3/8” tubing and 1 foot of 1/4” tubing, all of which enables vacuuming access to a variety of shapes and openings. Also included is a 2 foot piece of 3/8″ high density polyethylene tubing for longer reach and greater control of the vacuum tip.
Q:How do I use Vaccuflex?
A:Find the correctly sized red Vaccuflex cap that fits the diameter of your vacuum hose and firmly attach it. Then insert the largest tube into the cap. The other tubes can be used for smaller applications by inserting the smaller diameter tubes inside of the larger tubes.
Q:How can I straighten out the tubing for better control of the tip?
A:Now included is aforementioned 2 foot piece of 3/8″ polyethylene tubing. Two straightened wire hangers can also be taped to the outside of the tubing to keep it straight.
