Tygon® Vacuum Tubing has extra-heavy walls that will withstand a full vacuum at room temperature (29.9″ [759 mm] of mercury at 73°F [23°C]) and up to 27″ [686 mm] of mercury at 140°F [60°C].
Like standard Tygon® Laboratory Tubing, Tygon® Vacuum Tubing resists most inorganic chemicals and can be used in corrosive atmospheres.
Clarity allows monitoring for possible backups which could result in equipment damage. Tygon® Vacuum Tubing will not swell closed if vacuum pump oil should back up into it.
Low vapor pressure (low outgassing) makes it suitable for vacuum applications down to 3 x 10-2 mm Hg at 165°F (74°C). Ideal for analytical testing of gases or vapors. Well-suited for use in making manometers.
