bell jar hose

Post by RosalieL »

What hose do you attach between the bell jar and the pump? The plate looks like you could just use the same as the bunsen hose but it won't attach to the pump. The pump looks like it needs something that will plug into it. It's an oil free vacuum pump LE-22C if that helps.

We've got a bit of this stuff on ours. Not sure about the diameter though.

Thanks KassH and Anna Z,
I ended up looking up on the suppliers website to see if there was an adapter or specific hose I should have purchased. It turns out the pump is supposed to come with 2 hoses... so now I am working on getting the hoses that didn't come with it. This is the first time we've tried to use it although I purchased it last year. The pump requires and actual connector of some kind on the hose.

Glad you got it sorted
