Applications

COLLECTOR® FLEX is a further development of the established COLLECTOR® quality hose. The new, integrated plastic helix lends the hose a high degree of flexibility, thereby guaranteeing excellent handling, even at low temperatures. Its white NR inner lining is completely neutral in terms of odor and taste and is resistant to raw milk and many of the commonly used cleaning products. Not only is the NR cover highly abrasion resistant, it is also resistant to UV radiation and ozone.
