With more than 100 years experience in the production of elastomer hoses and hose lines, Continental is one of the leading manufacturers of high-quality hoses for the beverage industry. Our hoses meet the strict hygiene requirements that apply to drinking water, food and beverage hoses, reliably and safely. That is why the rubber used for the inner lining must conform to the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment’s recommendation XXI for Commodities Based on Natural and Synthetic Rubber or the directives of the Food and Drug Administration in the United States. Our BLAUDIECK® and PAGUFIX® hose fitting systems also meet all the regulations and standards applicable in the food and beverage industry, and guarantee that a highly diverse range of media can flow through safely and hygienically.
The multiplicity of new hose technology applications, statutory regulations and the abundance of media to be transported confront our development engineers with new challenges every day – Successfully so. Our product innovations give us a defining influence on the establishment of market standards as does our involvement in national and international standards committees. The networking within the company enables us to accelerate intensive know-how transfer developments. The corporation’s in-house testing and experimentation labs allow us to runs trials of our products under more or less authentic operating conditions.
To select the right hose, it is necessary to have complex knowledge of the requirements it must satisfy. For this reason we cooperate closely with technical dealers, whose technical expertise, advisory competence and comprehensive customer service – make them an important link between the manufacturer and user. That is why we regard it as our duty to support our partners effectively by
sharing know-how. This is very important since sensitive fields such as the foodstuffs and beverage industry require a thorough knowledge of innovative hose-technology applications and materials, the statutory requirements and the latest cleaning agents and disinfectants.
