HOW TO CHOOSE FOOD-GRADE HOSE?

The food-grade hose is mainly used to transport such milk, juice, beer, beverage, and other food media hose, the requirements of the hose do not contain plasticizers, is non-toxic, will not cause contamination of the transport medium, and food safety requirements are high, so food-grade hose needs to have such as FDA, BFR, and other food-grade proof.

In the case of meeting all the above conditions, you need to select the food-grade hose you need according to your user needs.

For unloading bays, processing and filling plants, and liquid foodstuff tankers. The additional airline on-road tankers carry bulk powdered products (not compressor lines) at temperatures up to +120°C.

DSF hose is improved flexibility and is very easy to handle. A smooth, seamless, white, multipurpose food-grade tube that does not propagate bacterial growth. Excellent resistance to kinking. Temperature changes have little effect due to the qualities of the rubber compound. Resistant to cleaning with most common detergents or with steam at max. 130°C. Non-marking, abrasion-resistant cover. Contains no phthalate.

 

2. Delivery and Suction Food Hose – DSF EPDM

 

DSF EPDM

 

This kind of hose is designed for suction and delivery of aqueous food, such as wine, juice, soft drinks, and other foodstuffs. NOT recommended for fatty food.

Its inner tube is EPDM rubber and the outer cover is a synthetic rubber. And the constant operation is between -40˚C to + 100˚C.

The white and smooth tube rubber of DSF EPDM can effectively inhibit the growth of bacteria. Hose with good flexibility and characteristic of anti-twist, wear resistance, and anti-fouling.

 

3. Crush Resistant Food Hose – DSF CR

 

DSF CR

 

The inner tube of the crush-resistant food hose is NBR rubber. And it used the high tension synthetic textile to be the reinforcement.

Crush-resistant food hose is a multi-purpose hose with high performance, used in the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industry. Hose assembled by our specific designed crimper and assembled with rubber protection ring provide it with perfect performance.

Hose with unique roller compaction recover structure, specially designed for application in harsh environments. It can recover/keep the stability of round size after the rolling compaction by truck, rolling recovery rate ≥ 80%. The white and smooth tube rubber of food quality can effectively inhibit the growth of bacteria. Hose with good flexibility and characteristics of anti-twist, wear resistance, and anti-fouling. The hose can be used with steam and detergent at a temperature no more than +130℃ for disinfection.

4. Washdown Hose – WWF
