Hoses used in the foodstuffs and beverage industries must be of such quality that they do not negatively influence the foodstuffs they transport. Moreover, you must – if necessary – be able to disinfect them. Due to these chemical cleaning processes, the safety regulations in the T 002 datasheet "Hose lines – safe application" of the German Employment Accident Insurance Fund of the Chemical Industry (BG-Chemie) are to be applied in the foodstuffs industry.
This means that for the connection of foodstuffs and beverage hoses, only swaged or clamp fittings are permitted, as well as vulcanized hose fittings in exceptional cases. This is for a good reason. Swaged and clamp fittings ensure the highest level of safety. Since the tightness of the connection between hose and coupling for these fittings is higher than the bursting pressure of the hose,
there is no chance of the fittings breaking away. On top of that, swaged fittingsare considered to be particularly hygienic.
The PAGUFIX® hose fitting system meets all the relevant regulations and standards. The swaged fitting does not only fulfill the requirements of the T 002 for the safe application of hose lines, but also standards in quality and swaging technology. With this fitting system, Continental meets the increasing demands in the beverage and foodstuffs industries with regard to hygiene and safety. This
high-quality swaged fitting is manufactured using the 1.4301 material, yet it can also be supplied in other materials and various special versions whereby it can be optimally adapted to individual operational requirements.
