Masterflex Food-Safe Hoses Help Produce A Healthy Safe Diet
A healthy safe diet through food-compliant hoses
Most people start the day with breakfast which may include coffee, bread or rolls, cereals, muesli, syrups, eggs, meat products, yoghurt and various types of fruit. The breakfast table is often colourful and varied with many food products. While eating breakfast, you would never think of hoses, but they are vital for getting food products onto the table.
Most foods encountered in everyday situations have one thing in common, their production using food-compliant hoses as a part of the manufacturing process.
A healthy safe diet with the correct hose
Bread and rolls start life as flour, yeast and water. In industrial bakeries, flour conveyance is through hoses such as our Master PUR-L Food A and PUR H Food A, which are manufactured from FDA-approved polyurethane materials and are antistatic, thus offering excellent abrasion resistance while being food safe. They also prevent the risk of explosion due to static build-up. The same hoses also convey abrasive cereals, muesli and other abrasive foodstuffs.
Our hose specialists provide the correct food hose for your plants and machines.
Food hoses & pipes for liquids
Liquid food and drinks such as milk, yoghurt, syrups, as well as beers, wines and spirits are all conveyed through the factories via stainless steel piping and flexible hose; in fact, most products that you eat and drink will have spent some time travelling through a hose of some kind or other.
Our hoses, such as the Master-PUR H Food and FEP hoses, are used for such applications. To comply with strict food regulations, the use of FDA-approved polyurethane material is required for conveying liquids such as syrup or highly viscous foods. The majority of our food hoses have the corresponding tests.
You have the application, and we have the connection.
Break time becomes joy time with the right food-safe hose
Have a Break with coffee, milk and FEP!
Whether outside the gates of the production halls, in the modern break room or in the company’s canteen, the break time serves to relax, recharge your batteries and increase your ability to concentrate and increase productivity. What most people can’t do without, during a bit of downtime is a mug of coffee.
Coffee is the second most consumed drink after water. Coffee beans are abrasive and conveyed in bulk through hoses such as our Master Pur-H Food hoses. Once in the coffee machine, liquid ingredients such as milk and hot water are transferred through FEP hoses before they reach the cup.
APT manufactures Food Hoses made from fluoropolymers, including FEP, which offer the high performance and food compliance expected by OEMs manufacturing automatic drinks machines.
Food-safe hoses made from fluoro-polymers
Often, we rely on high-quality food hoses made of fluoropolymers for our product solutions for the fully automatic machine segment. Due to their material properties, these food hoses function great when passing through hot water and substances. Food hoses made from fluoropolymers are always employed when a high-quality material is required. They belong to high-performance polymers.
As an original equipment manufacturer, or OEM for short, you certainly want to ensure productivity gains, don’t you? Using compliant and plasticizer-free food hoses for fully automatic coffee machines, you get the assurance that these hot beverages can be produced for safe consumption.
