March 14, 2008

NewAge Industries introduces a hose developed for the food and beverage industry. It offers durability yet is more flexible than other rubber food and beverage hoses of similar construction. The NewAge Food & Beverage Hose is well suited for a variety of applications including potable water, milk and dairy products, oily or animal fat-based foods, juices and non-alcoholic beverages.

The core of NewAge Food & Beverage Hose is manufactured from a food-grade nitrile rubber blend that meets FDA standards for use with food contact surfaces and will not impart a taste or odor to the product stream. It meets all requirements for a 3-A rating. The hose’s cover — also a nitrile blend — is abrasion resistant, lightweight and strong. NewAge Food & Beverage Hose is reinforced with polyester fabric and steel wire and handles both pressure and full vacuum applications (29.9 in./Hg.).

NewAge Food & Beverage Hose addresses the concern of flexibility in processing and transfer applications. It is crush-resistant and bends without kinking to allow unrestricted flow. Entrapment and blockage issues are minimized. The hose’s inner surface is manufactured for smoothness and to withstand typical day-to-day use in processing facilities.

Stocked sizes of NewAge Food & Beverage Hose range from one-inch to four-inch I.D. The hose is available in bulk quantities or as complete hose assemblies with stainless steel fittings in Tri-Clamp, cam and groove, I-line, tubeweld, and custom welded styles. NewAge Industries also offers many other hose materials and fitting styles suitable for food and beverage applications.
