Machinery vibration causes sanitary beverage hoses to become displaced and make a lot of noise!

Sanitary beverage hoses were making a lot of noise due to machinery vibration and were becoming displaced. They tried inserting a hose at the connection point to absorb the vibration, but then they had problems with the heat and acetic acid used during cleaning, meaning that sanitation was also an issue.

They chose the TOYOSILICONE Hose to absorb the vibration and stop the noise problem. The TOYOSILICONE Hose is flat inside and the material is visible. The portion of the coupling that contacts fluid is made to prevent liquid pooling. Pleased with the sanitary effect of reducing bacterial growth, they use a fastening coupling.
