CLAVE HOZE™-LV is a total redesign of our LS series autoclave hose. Like the LS series it is a high temperature, two ply silicone rubber jacket with a stainless steel inner liner and threaded brass fittings. The two ply silicone outer jacket provides a soft, highly flexible vacuum tube with no sharp edges or protrusions that could puncture vacuum bags. The steel inner liner prevents hose collapse under autoclave pressures and resists damage caused by shop handling and use.

Fittings were designed by TMI for use in autoclaves to relieve stress at the ferrule interface, to improve the rubber to fitting seal and to extend service life. Large wrench flat areas for quick and easy attachment to quick connects have also been added on the LV series fittings. The silicone rubber compound is produced using a proprietary manufacturing/extrusion process resulting in a more homogeneous jacket.
