The new, improved PURPLE SNAKE® is the ideal hose for breweries, wine press houses, bottling plants and other such installations in the brewing, beverage and spirits industries. With its flexibility, pressure resistance and long service life – even under extreme operating conditions – the hose has earned an outstanding reputation across the globe. The new, optimized, food-safe inner lining is completely neutral in terms of odor and taste, homogeneous, smooth and temperature resistant up to +90°C. It is resistant to all the commonly used cleaning and disinfection products. PURPLE SNAKE® is simple to clean both conventionally and by means of CIP installations. When combined with our swaged coupling systems and rubber protection rings, it becomes the ideal hose line!
