Food safe hose pipe is a flexible rubber hose to deliver food. It is the necessary material for food industry. Today let’s talk about the the operation of food hose.
Some factors to focus on when you use a food safe hose pipe
The first thing to note is that you should use the hose within the temp and pressure range. When you apply pressure, slowly open or close the valve. Then you can avoid excessive speed and stroke impact. Yeah, thus damaging the hose. As for specific fluids, you must choose the suitable hose type. If you are not sure, consult the supplier. Here I recommend you Orientflex.
Some non-food grade hose are not allowed to be used for food. In this case, please choose a special food hose. When using the hose, you should also use it above its min bending radius. While if the medium is powder or granule, try to not bend the hose. Because there will be wear between the hose and medium.
Never make your hose contact or close to open flame. Besides, avoid extreme bend near metal parts. In addition, you can use a reel to set or recycle the hose. Then it can reduce the wear and tear. Besides, it can extend the service life by at least five times.
When you assembly the food pipe, there will be expand and contract. So it is best to cut the actual length longer than what we need. For some steel wire hoses, when cutting, the exposed steel wires can easily cause harm to the human body. At this time, pay attention to personal safety. During the assembly process, choose a proper size of the hose fitting.
Above are the precautions to use a food grade rubber hose. If you still have some questions, please feel free to contact Orientflex.
