Food and beverage hoses, commonly referred to as FDA grade tubes, are commonly used in industries that process or handle food materials. Their design is aimed at ensuring food is moved without risking contamination. Besides, they also help to move food and beverage without causing unwanted odor or taste. Some of the industries that use food and beverage hoses
include those dealing with beer, milk, soft drinks, fish, flour, water, and wine. The food and beverage hoses meet the high standards set by the FDA and also adhere to the recommended 3A sanitary conditions. The hoses can be grouped into two: high pressure, and high-temperature models. The high-temperature grade food and beverage hoses are recommended for highly demanding operations, especially those that require operating at very high temperatures. On the other hand, the high-pressure food and beverage hoses are designed to sustain high pressure. This is why they are common in the beer and wine handling industries.
