Requires barbed fitting (sold separately) for standard tubing.
Equipped with standard 1/4" NPT Male Quick Change Fitting.
The Thru-Bag Vacuum Connector gives the experienced fabricator a number of opportunities for vacuum bagging techniques and accurate readings: Draw air directly from the vacuum bag with a conventional air hose; steel nipple makes installation quick and easy. Remove the steel nipple and install hose barbs to draw air. Install our #896 Vacuum Gauge directly to nipple and monitor pressure within the bag. Insert base within vacuum bag, make a small hole for opening, and screw the remaining part of the mechanism onto the bag. Use with temperatures up to 500°F.
Substance Glast Vacuum Connector - Each
Creates a leak-free vacuum connection
Simple and economic choice for fabricators
This Vacuum Connector is the most economical choice for a reusable, leak-free vacuum port in a basic vacuum bagging or resin infusion installation.Installation is simple: insert base within vacuum bag, then pull threaded opening through a small hole made in the film; slide on O-ring, followed by the nut.Air can be drawn directly from the vacuum bag by attaching 1/2" Vacuum Tubing (#893), secured with our continuous band Hose Clamps (#789).

I have a 220V uncomfortable vacumm pump and would like to rewire to 110V?
This inspirit is used for vacuum bagging composites ie, carbon fiber, fiberglass with epoxy resins. The process is called "vacuum bagging" . Have a this brand new vac pump and would like to rewire it to 110V.
you may be accomplished to rewire it IF it has a multi-tapped input.
If not, just have an electrican add a 220v outlet for you. US Homes are serviced with 220v, where it is split at the breaker panel....
Have a fiberglass mold, but fancy to form a plastic boat in it. What kind of plastic material can I use?
