What are food grade hoses?

Hose is a phrase collectively referred to flexible tubes that are not rigid like as plastic pipes or stainless steel pipes. The material of hoses is usually made of plastic, rubber, silicone materials… with a variety of structures such as with helix wire, reinforced with braided mesh, plies of synthetic cords and steel braided hoses.

Food grade hoses, also known as hygienic hoses, are often found in manufacturing plants, used to convey solid-suspended medium or liquids such as cooking oil, ice cream, milk, chili sauces, water, cosmetics, beer, soft drinks, etc. Normally, food hoses need to achieve international quality certifications such as 3A or FDA certification to ensure that when the hose comes into contact with the medium during the production process, it will not affect the output products in terms of taste and color.

In addition to requirements of quality certification, some installation sites require hoses to meet the limited spaces of installation, temperature, pressure, or flexibility and bending. Commercial hoses often work inefficiently (easily being broken, stamped or punctured due to working at high temperature and pressure) when conducting specific liquids in the food and pharmaceutical industry.

Therefore, food hoses were introduced to overall overcome this disadvantage. Moreover, food hoses are often manufactured using no dead-legs connection technology to ensure that the connection points between the clamping head and the hose is not contaminated.

– Hoses come in different types suitable for a wide range of applications in the food, beverage, dairy industries.

– Some types of food hoses can be used for fluid medium at high temperature, high pressure.

– Flexible hoses can also be used at locations where rigid pipes are not suitable such as: connection to vibrating screeners, continuously fluctuating filling heads in packaging plants, for corrosive chemicals and at places that need to change positions, or at narrow, limited spaces.
