Proper selection of Beer Hose, or in some circles, Brewing Hose is often based upon the number one subjective criteria – taste. Beer and Brewing hose should not impart any flavor into the beer being transferred through the hose. A great deal of work has been done in this area by major global breweries as well as the small and mid-size craft brewers. Unfortunately the industry has not reached a general agreement on which contact layer is the best. Every brewer has their own ideas of which rubber compound is best. Some major brewers have locked in on EPDM and others Butyl. Still other craft brewers are looking to platinum cured silicone and dedicating hoses for each product. Taste aside, the mechanical properties of all of our hoses will meet or exceed your requirements.
The good news is that we supply the highest quality hoses food grade hoses in EPDM rubber, Butyl Rubber as well as Silicone. All three hoses ares in compliance with FDA 21 CFR 177.2600.
The hoses can be finished with either 316L SS sanitary tri-clamp ferrules, DIN 11851 or SMS threaded ends.
The Venablue EPDM hose is manufactured with inner food grade EPDM and outer blue EPDM rubber cover. In addition it is embedded with a textile reinforcement layers. These hoses have no spiral reinforcement, which allows them to be run over by vehicles and the hose will rebound. Note! This is not suggested as a normal occurrence. Operational temperature range from -30ºC to +90ºC (-22ºF to 194ºF). It may reach up to 130ºC (266ºF) for a maximum time of 120 minutes. It can be sterilised at 130ºC (266ºF).
The Butylfood hose has very much the same construction in that is equipped with textile reinforcements inside the wall of the hose. In addition the Butylfood hose has a double steel spring wire and copper braiding to ensure an grounding joint with the metal fittings to protect from discharges of static electricity. The hoses have strong, durable construction that can withstand excessive physical handling. The hose is operable with pressure or vacuum. The operating range is -30ºC to +120ºC (-22ºF to +248ºF)
The Venasil silicone hose is constructed from platinum cured silicone rubber with a textile reinforcement and spring steel wire reinforcement for operation with pressure or vacuum. The operating range is -60º C / +180º C (-76º F / +356º F).
All of the beer hoses are designed for cleaning and sanitizing in place using standard industry chemicals and can be sterilized at up to 130°C.
Delivery for the beer hoses is typically from stock and ship nationwide in 3-5 business days.
