There are many classifications in the food industry, where ice cream is closely related to our daily life. How does the ice cream industry choose the right hose for the delivery of raw materials? DELOX (de Lu) recommends the use of rubber hoses and silicone hoses that meet the requirements of food contact. In addition, it is necessary to select hoses with good oil resistance according to actual production requirements.
Why don't you choose the PVC HOSE?
In fact, many enterprises still use the ice cream PVC hose, but some time PVC hose work at minus 10 degrees under the environment itself, brittle and hard; hot water wash and then use the 60 degrees, itself will become very soft; after repeated alternating hot and cold PVC hose will not only lose the characteristic of soft, it will release plasticizer, plasticizer harm an article we have introduced. Therefore, DELOX (de Lu) strongly recommends the use of rubber hoses and silicone hoses.
How about rubber hose and silicone hose?
The production of ice cream requires a full set of equipment, adequate production space, and the production process is divided into several major steps. In this step before the processing of raw materials, the use of rubber hose may be more, mainly used to connect the production equipment, the most important function is to transport material, cleaning equipment can also be inside.
In the actual processing steps of ice cream, the use of silicone hose is more. Because silicone hose soft texture, high degree of bending, small mobile processing equipment can cooperate effectively, and the rubber hose with good toughness, mechanical performance is weaker.
Also need to remind one thing: because of production equipment or production process, production and processing after long time, silicone hose will appear damaged or broken to a certain extent, it needs time to repair and the replacement of silicon rubber hoses, to prevent leakage of material. DELOX (de Lu) recommends using removable hose connections in the part that connects the silicone hose to facilitate replacement of the silicone hose later.
Why choose a good hose resistant to oil?
Some cream in the ice cream is high in composition, so it needs a good hose with good oil resistance. Otherwise, because the hose is immersed in grease and rupture, will lead to leakage of material, serious production accidents. IIR, NBR, EPDM and UPE, these materials are good oil resistance, more suitable for ice cream industry.
DELOX (de Lu) products recommended
For rubber hoses, DELOX (de Lu) recommends several good hoses, such as the ML universal food tube (Millennium) and the BF food grade rubber tube (BlueFortress). The former is suitable for a variety of food material delivery, FDA food contact compliant certification, inner steel wire, negative pressure resistance ability, widely used; the latter also can take more food and water cleaning materials, support up to 93 degrees, while the outer layer of the rubber by Microban technology, effectively resist bacteria.
Silicone hose DELOX (de Lu's) recommended SLP pharmaceutical grade silicone tube (Silicone Pressure), soft translucent, smooth inner wall, strengthen the network of four layers of polyester woven, the same FDA food contact compliant certification.
