Hygienic Hose AssemblyAs a Trelleborg partner, Kiowa Ltd are able to offer application specific hose and hose assemblies for the food industry.

Our hose assemblies can be used for:

  • Unloading operations
  • Transferring operations
  • Processing
  • Packaging
  • Milk collection

Trelleborg’s food hoses have a seamless extruded liner made from special rubber compounds which prevents bacterial growth within the hose. These food hoses are flexible, strong and have excellent resistance to hammer shocks.

Kiowa Ltd test our hose assemblies to 1.5 times their working pressure. This combined with our interlocking swaged couplings in either light or heavy series versions ensure both safety and long service life.

Further Options for your Food Hose Assemblies

We offer many options for our hose assemblies including; a range of fittings, custom ferrule marking, bounce rings, elbows and rubber coated nuts.

Light Series Fittings

Light series hygienic hose fittings have been specifically designed to be light weight and have been fully tested to 1.5 times their hose working pressure. They are the preferred fitting of many tanker fleets where operators are constantly handling hoses. Typical applications are milk collection and loading and unloading bays.

Heavy Series Fittings

Heavy series hygienic hose fittings are designed to withstand higher pressures and have excellent resistance to sudden impulses and pressure spikes and are fully tested to twice their hose working pressure. Typical applications are high viscosity foods, mobile vessel connections and pump connections.

Reusable Hose Fittings

Reusable hygienic hose fittings are specifically designed for tanker operators where there is an increased risk of hoses being crushed. These fittings can be removed and refitted with the use of an allen key with no loss in pressure rating. This fitting can be used several times, reducing down time and cost. Our reusable fittings have been fully tested with Trelleborg hoses to twice the hose working pressure.
