Model SHTK-PUMP consists of:
- Vacuum pump
- 6 Lexan Male gasket plugs (to create the vacuum)
- 6 Lexan quick attachable Female/vacuum ends
- Lexan pieces fit: 6″, 5″, 4 1/2″, 4″, 3″ and 2 1/2″ hose coupling
- Plastic carrying case
- Place the appropriately sized Lexan disks over the female and male connections when you start the pump.
- Watching the gauge, isolate the system with a quarter turn of the valve once the desired level of vacuum is achieved and shut off the pump
- While the vacuum holds each disk in place, the clear Lexan gives you the ability to visually inspect inside of the hose with the flashlight for de-lamination or other damage.
- When time is up, return to atmosphere with another quick turn of the valve and you are done!
