Applications

FLUOROPAL® Food + Drink is the premium high-end hose for pharmaceutical and cosmetic industrial applications in a range of limited conditions, as well as for the food and beverage industry. Thanks to its fluoroplastic inner lining, the FLUOROPAL® is resistant to the most extreme temperature ranges. It handles constant temperatures of up to +125°C (+257°F) and short-term cleaning temperatures of up to +150°C (+320°F) with ease. Moreover, this excellent all-rounder is highly resistant to all chemicals used in cleaning and disinfection products. The high-temperature resistant EPDM cover is also resistant to ozone and weathering. When combined with our swaged coupling systems and rubber protection rings, it becomes the ideal hose line! We recommend that only crimped coupling systems are used.
