Hannover. To protect consumers, companies that process, produce, and sell foodstuffs have to observe specific hygiene regulations. The Conti Cleanjet is the ideal multi-purpose hose for the food industry and is suitable for both the thorough cleaning of machines and systems as well as for the hygienic processing of liquid foodstuffs containing oil and grease. Thanks to a specialized, highly resistant rubber compound, the Conti Cleanjet can even handle corrosive chicken fat. The robust brand-name hose also reliably delivers hot water up to a temperature of 80°C and an operating pressure of 90 bar, which sets this high-quality universal hose apart from all other cleansing and food hoses available on the market.
Confirmed suitability for foodstuffs
This durable high-pressure hose meets the requirements of EC regulations 1935/2004 and 2023/2006 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, as well as the directives of the American Food and Drug Administration FDA (21 CFR 177.2600). This ensures that the taste or smell of the transported medium is not affected and that the bright, impervious, smooth NBR inner lining is suitable for foodstuffs. As equipment used for transporting foodstuffs, hoses must be able to be cleaned and, in certain circumstances, disinfected or sterilized to an adequate degree. To ensure this, the Conti Cleanjet is steamable up to 6 bar and +164°C in an open system.
Safe – and with major practical benefits
The blue, abrasion-resistant NBR outer coating of the hose is resistant to grease, ozone, UV, and weathering. This ensures a long service life and offers major practical benefits and maximum operating safety. The reinforcement made from high-quality, synthetic thread also plays a key role here. With a pressure level of 90 bar, the highly flexible and grease-resistant brand-name hose, which is made in Germany, can handle the most diverse range of applications and uses in the food production industry. The brand-name hose is also available in a 10 bar version.
The Conti Cleanjet is not only extremely resistant to grease and high temperatures but can also operate at pressures of up to 90 bar. It meets the requirements of EC regulations 1935/2004 and 2023/2006 and FDA (21 CFR 177.2600), which ensures its suitability for use with foodstuffs. This hygienic high-pressure and cleansing hose is therefore ideal for the food industry.
