Applications

LACTOPAL® is the multi-purpose, high-class hose for the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. The bright inner lining is homogeneous, smooth and completely neutral in terms of odor and taste and is particularly well-suited to the transportation of media containing grease and oil. It is resistant to commonly used cleaning and disinfection products. Having been specially developed for everyday use under rough operating conditions, LACTOPAL® is robust, dimensionally stable and vehicle resistant. When combined with our swaged coupling systems and rubber protection rings, it becomes the ideal hose line!
