Vacuum hose is a common type of piping used in industrial production, mainly for transferring gases or liquids. Rubber and silicone are two common vacuum hose materials, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
Comparison of Rubber Vacuum Hose and Silicone Vacuum Hose
|Rubber Vacuum Hose
|Silicone Vacuum Hose
|Good flexibility, good abrasion resistance, good corrosion resistance
|Good resistance to high temperature, low temperature, good corrosion resistance, good aging resistance
|Easy aging, shorter service life
|Scope of application
|General vacuum applications Vacuum applications
|in high and low temperatures, corrosive environments
Application of rubber vacuum hose
Rubber vacuum hose is widely used in vacuum applications in industrial production, such as:
Vacuum pumps: used to connect vacuum pumps and vacuum containers
Vacuum suction cups: used to adsorb objects
Vacuum valves: for controlling vacuum flow
Vacuum sensors: for measuring vacuum
Applications of Silicone Vacuum Hose
Silicone vacuum hoses are mainly used in the following areas:
Food processing: for vacuum packaging of food products
Pharmaceuticals: vacuum packaging of pharmaceuticals
Electronics: for vacuum packaging of electronic products
Chemical: for chemical vacuum transportation
How to choose rubber vacuum hose or silicone vacuum hose
When choosing rubber vacuum hose or silicone vacuum hose, the following factors should be considered:
Environmental conditions of vacuum application: If the environment temperature of vacuum application is high or low, then silicone vacuum hose should be chosen. If there are corrosive substances in the vacuum application environment, silicone vacuum hose or rubber vacuum hose should be selected.
Frequency of use of the vacuum application: If the vacuum application is used more frequently, then rubber vacuum hose should be chosen.
Budget of vacuum application: If the budget of vacuum application is high, then you can choose silicone vacuum hose.
Rubber vacuum hoses and silicone vacuum hoses have their advantages and disadvantages. Rubber vacuum hoses are less expensive, but are prone to aging and have a shorter service life. Silicone vacuum hose is resistant to high temperature, low temperature, corrosion and aging, but it is more expensive. When choosing rubber vacuum hose or silicone vacuum hose, the choice should be made according to the specific conditions of the vacuum application.
