Default filter press suction hose

What are people using for the suction side of the filter press for suction hose so it doesn't collapse? Thanks.

We use the 1/2 inch clear braid, the suction side works fine, its the presure side that gives me concerns as it swells or expands. Thinking about that hose to a braided stainless.

High temp and pressure on the hose from pump to press could pressurize the hose beyond reasonable levels. Have you looked and connecting with stainless pipe?

I'll probably go to braided stainless hose. Hadn't even thought of piping it, that may be good option.

my filter press came with a flexible high temp high pressure hose, maybe 4' or so. The pressure just needs to be a safe margin over 100 PSI at 212 F. Maybe even only 200 after going thru the pump and filter plates.
