CVS-I 90° Short Socket Elbow
The 90° Short Socket Elbow CVS fitting is a special design and used for connection of inlets in non-standard depth walls (those walls not constructed with a 2X4 studs) and the connection of Vacpan or Vacusweep sweep-type inlets. This HUB fitting has one full depth socket and a shorter .35 inch depth socket. This short depth socket is used in the under counter or in-wall installation of sweep inlets to fit within the standard 2X4 wall construction. The CV5504 is also used when installing a standard wall-valve into a 2X3 wall bay. The 90° Short Socket Elbow makes a very tight turn and should only be used in the installation of a wall or sweep valve.

PVC Vacuum Fitting Connector Information

A SOCKET (also called a HUB, shown in red) is a female end of a fitting designed to accept pipe or a SPIGOT connector. A SOCKET measures 1.98" inside diameter to accept the 2 inch nominal pipe for interconnection of a central vacuum system. The HUB FITTING is the most commonly used fitting connector and most fittings use a SOCKET at both ends (SOCKET X SOCKET). A full depth SOCKET fitting measures .75 inches in depth to allow good adhesion to pipe when glued. A special "Short Socket" 90° fitting (part# CV5504) uses a .25 inch depth socket to allow for use in smaller spaces and is used also in the installation of Vacpan and Vacusweep sweep-inlets which are not glued. All Vacdepot installation kits include HUB FITTINGS.

A SPIGOT (shown in red) is a male end of a fitting designed to be used inside another fittings SOCKET end. Any fitting with at least one end in a SPIGOT connector is called a STREET FITTING. A STREET fittings uses a SPIGOT on one end and a SOCKET on the other (SOCKET X SPIGOT). A STREET fitting is used less often in the construction of a central vacuum tubing system but is very useful when two fittings must be joined together to make connection not available in a standard SOCKET fitting. A SPIGOT connector measures .71 inches in depth to allow full insertion into a SOCKET fitting. Standard HUB FITTING's can be converted to a SPIGOT end by the use of a SPIGOT ADAPTER (SPIGOT X SPIGOT) or the use of a 1.75 inch length of vacuum tube. However a SPIGOT to SOCKET fitting will be approximately .75 inches shorter than a SOCKET to SOCKET fitting using a SPIGOT adapter or short piece of pipe due to the lack of a second HUB in the connection. STREET fittings are not included in the standard Vacdepot install kit and are available in the fittings category.
