Reliable hygiene is of the utmost importance in the food and beverage industry. Accordingly, hoses used to transport water for food companies must adhere to the stringent requirements of Germany’s 2001 drinking water regulations, including compliance with the guidelines governing construction products used in contact with drinking water (KTW) and the W 270 test standard. Furthermore, the hoses must be marked accordingly – like the AQUAPAL®, the sturdy and highly flexible drinking water hose from ContiTech. The quality hose, which combines compliance with the stringent requirements of the drinking water regulations and the advantages of a flexible rubber hose, passed all tests required by law – far ahead of all other drinking water hoses made of rubber.
ContiTech grants a three-year guarantee on the drinking water hose – and thanks to its blue jacket with the yellow wavy line, AQUAPAL is unmistakable. The inner lining of the brand-name hose is homogeneous, smooth, and free of plasticizers. In addition, it is absolutely odour- and taste-neutral, which is indispensable for drinking water applications. Thanks to its wear-resistant NBR cover, which is resistant to UV radiation, ozone and grease, it has a long service life, even under the harsh conditions that prevail in the food and beverage industry. Furthermore, AQUAPAL can be cleaned using all disinfecting agents.
