Chemical Suction Hose with cross-linked polyethylene tube Type 2909C XLPE Chemical Hose is a premium grade chemical resistant hose designed for transfer of a variety of liquid chemical & acid solutions. A slick, clear, modified (cross linked) polyethylene tube will not contaminate the conveyed product. The corrugated EPDM rubber cover offers higher flexibility than traditional smooth-cover chemical hose, along with weather resistant properties. A dual wire helical reinforcement offers durability, full vacuum capability, and kink resistance. XLPE chemical hose is also available in blue cover. While the tube is non-marking, the hose does not carry an FDA rating, do not use with food, beverage, or pharmaceuticals.

Chemical hose best practices:

  • In some applications the tube material may be resistant to the chemical being conveyed but not the hose cover. In these cases be careful not to expose the outside surface of the hose.
  • Test chemical compatibility before putting hose into service, even if the hose material shows to be compatible.
  • Inspect chemical hose regularly and remove from service before a failure occurs.
  • When possible, store chemical hose so that air can circulate through it to prolong hose-life.
