The food industry is all inclusive and ketchup is also included. We need to spread it here. Tomato sauce tastes sour, and its pH is <7, but it's alkaline. Which kind of hose should be chosen for conveying tomato sauce? DELOX (de Lu) recommends the use of acid, alkaline, wear-resistant, anti-aging food grade hose.

Where are the advantages of choosing a good hose with good acid and alkali resistance?
The pH of tomato is about 4.4, while the pH value of tomato sauce may change because of the processing technology, but in general it must be less than 7. In the actual production of tomato sauce process, you need to process tomatoes, and then with other edible additives, such as oil, sugar, etc., many of which transport links.
If the hose is not resistant to acid and base, the hose will be unevenly corroded. Plus the hose itself can withstand a certain pressure, in serious corrosion of the place, there will be pressure packed hose, the materials leak, it will cause serious accidents.
CCS （Conti Chem Superior）
DELOX (de Lu) products recommended
DELOX (de Lu) recommended the use of CCS Conti Chem Superior (chemical solvent tube), which is a superior acid and alkali resistance of rubber hose.
The inner layer adopts FEP (Teflon) material, and has good acid and alkali effect. The reinforcing layer adopts high strength fiber knitting net and antistatic spiral steel wire, and has strong negative pressure resistance ability; the outer layer adopts EPDM rubber, and has the advantages of wear resistance and aging resistance.
CCS FDA Chem (Conti) Superior through the United States and USP VI double food contact certification, applicable to a variety of food production environment.
In addition, you need to remind: because tomato sauce will be spoiled for a long time, if the production system is not cleaned in time, then the follow-up production can not continue. CCS chemical solvent tube (Conti, Chem, Superior) support CIP and SIP cleaning, but also support 150 degrees high temperature saturated steam cleaning for a short time, to ensure the safety and health of production system.
