It is a critical moment in any distillery, and the tension is palpable: the freshly distilled raw whisky is flowing into the oak barrels. The atmosphere is highly explosive – in theory, at least. The hoses, through which the liquid flows, become electrostatically charged by the distillate flowing through them, or by being moved across the floor, turning the production area into an explosion hazard zone. This is because the charge can reach such high energy levels that sparks can develop, for example, when the hose line is connected, and these sparks can ignite an explosive mixture. But thanks to our Purple Snake Plus Conductive, the whole process runs extremely smoothly. This high-performance hose can safely dissipate possible static charges thanks to the coiled black conductive strip in the white inner lining and the red hose cover. Of course, the hose also fulfills the legal regulations and hygiene requirements that apply to food and beverage hoses. As a result, it helps to ensure that filling processes can be carried out safely and hygienically – not only for whiskies but also for wine and other drinks.
