Ideal for Handling Oily and Greasy Products

Published 11 March 2011 | By ContiTech

Whether in the meat or fish processing industry, frozen food production or the confectionary industry – hoses are used throughout the food industry as flexible connections for transporting a wide variety of different products.

With LACTOPAL® in its range, ContiTech is able to supply the food industry with a first-class multipurpose hose that is ideal for handling oily and greasy products.



Fulfils all requirements

The high-quality rubber compounds and reinforcement materials used in LACTOPAL® satisfy the strictest hygienic requirements and possess all necessary test certificates. They conform to the recommendation XXI of the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment as well as directives of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US. The white, non-porous, smooth inner liner of the hose is resistant to conventional cleaning agents. It can also be sterilized with steam at temperatures of up to 110 degrees Celsius, with peaks of up to 130 degrees Celsius. This enables it to be cleaned sufficiently and means it can also be disinfected if necessary.



Quality guaranteed

Thanks to its abrasion-resistant cover which is capable of resisting oil and grease and is insensitive to ozone and ultraviolet radiation, as well as the high-quality textile pressure-bearing material, the hose is exceptionally robust and dimensionally stable. ContiTech offers a two-year quality guarantee for LACTOPAL® when used correctly and under the recommended conditions.
