COOLANT HOSES & NOZZLES
“LOC-LINE” is the original modular coolant hose, nozzles and fittings manufacturer from the USA. Although Miller’s Tooling can also supply other generic brands of coolant hose & coolant fittings, we prefer and recommend Loc-line coolant nozzles & fittings. “Maxiflex” coolant hoses and Maxiflex coolant nozzles from Switzerland can also be supplied. The blue Locline coolant hose is designed in x3 bore sizes with the ¼” bore & ½” bore as the regular choice for most lathes & mills.
A neat trick is to assemble the Locline coolant hoses & fittings first up in morning prior to hands getting oily, so as the Locline fittings click in together readily. Alternatively, Loc-line also manufactures Locline pliers for assembly of the Locline fittings & Locline nozzles.
Locline hoses can be used in many applications as illustrated below.
Acid Resistant Loc-Line®
Acid resistant coolant fittings & coolant hoses are also avail. thru Miller’s Tooling Pty Ltd manufactured in an acid resistant polyester. Acid environments won't corrode the Loc-Line Acid Resistant Hose because of it's polyester composition.
CAUTION - Loc-Line® Acid Resistant Hose is not intended for conveying acids or high pressure
The Loc-Line® 2-1/2" Vacuum Hose is designed to be added to an existing central vacuum system to extract smoke, dust, fumes and particles at the source. It is easy to position within a work area and can be mounted to a 3" thin walled PVC drain pipe, 3" sheet metal duct, or a portable shop vacuum
