Series SW430 is a suction and discharge hose designed to handle fatty and oily foods, liquids, sanitary products and potable water in a variety of transfer applications. The hose is manufactured using polished stainless steel mandrels for an ultra-smooth, bacteria- free tube that will not impart taste or odor. The tube cleans easily with 10% alkali bath, hot water, or open-end low pressure steam to 15 psi (1.0 bar). The lightweight construction incorporates a dual wire helix that provides full suction capability, kink resistance and a path to conduct a static electrical charge to ground. The nitrile cover is resistant to abrasion and oil.
