Food Processing Hoses that Resist Bacteria

Parker Hannifin’s Parflex Division has introduced High Temperature Food Processing hoses for the food and beverage industry. The hoses are FDA compliant and have a fluoropolymer tube that resists the collection of bacteria, preserves taste, and is very easy to clean. The hose has added reinforcement to withstand internal pressures and full vacuum capabilities within temperature parameters. Additionally, hoses with stainless steel braid reinforcement are available with a silicone jacket for handling protection and coated fittings with a FEP liner to stop flow reduction at fitting connection. Flare-Seal hose assemblies include a PTFE liner that goes though the inside of the fitting and is flared over the top to give 100% full PTFE coverage on all wetted surfaces. Sizes range from ½” I.D. to 4” I.D., depending on style.
