Hose Application: Suction

All suction hoses below are reinforced for use under vacuum on the suction side of a pump, but can also be used for discharge. Compare the various suction hose benefits to determine the best choice for your application.
  • RN1 is a quality rubber suction hose designed for rugged applications, and makes tighter bends without kinking. It is reinforced with textile plies and a helical wire. 1" to 12" diameters. -25F to 185F.
  • RN2 is a lighter weight EPDM rubber suction ready hose reinforced with a polyethylene helix. The external helix provides for easy drag, and it allows a smooth bore. It is also a less expensive than some other rubber suction hoses. 1-1/2" to 4" diameters. -40F to 158F.
  • PN1 is a lighter weight and economical PVC suction ready hose with a smooth bore. 1" to 12" diameters. 15F to 150F.
  • PN2 is a lightweight and flexible, high quality PVC hose specially designed for suction or transfer applications where visual flow is preferred. It has a smooth bore and an external rigid PVC helix. 2" to 8" diameters. 5F to 150F.
  • LS1 is a lightweight, crush resistant and non-kinking plastic suction hose that retains its excellent flexibility even in the cold weather. A smooth bore tube minimizes material buildup and is resistant to a variety of chemicals in sanitary and many other demanding applications. 1-1/2" to 4" diameters. -40F to 140F.
  • RP1 is the industry standard for suction ready in-plant, tank truck and general transfer of gasoline, oil, and refined petroleum products at 150psi pressures. Also available in ready made assemblies. 1-1/4" to 4" diameters. -40F to 180F.
  • RP8 is a heavy, rugged suction-ready hose that handles fluids including petroleum produts on marine docks and ships. It also available as ready made assemblies as the RP8-AS. 250psi. 2" to 12". -40 to 190F.
  • SU1 is a corrugated stainless steel hose that can be used at lower pressures at high temperatures. For higher pressures, see the braided metal hoses options. 1/4" to 24" diameters. -320F to 1500F.
  • RS7 is a high quality suction hose used for conveying potable drinking water. It includes a blue weather and abrasion reistant EPDM cover, and a special white FDA plastic tube. 1" to 4" diameters. 180F.
