Food & Beverage Hose

 

Among our best selling products for our hose distributors are food hose. Hose styles for the food and beverage industry have always been a focus for us. Unisource food hose is constructed using FDA grade materials. Our rubber hose with white food-grade liners rank with the industry’s finest. Vinyl/PVC hose specs with food-grade materials are our economical and light weight choice. The most severe food hose applications will involve elevated temperatures and/or easy-to-contaminate media. Our FEP lined rubber hoses are ideal for these situations. Unisource clear polyurethane hoses are ideal for abrasive food media, providing extended life and flexibility. Unisource is actively involved in the food industry and the with the various rules agencies. Ask about our food hose specs to meet 3-A, NSF 51, and USDA standards.
