We are a distributor of Parker Industrial hoses. Our Sanitary (3A) line of hoses are extremely flexible, kink resistant suction and discharge hoses designed to handle dry materials, 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. Most of these hoses are provided with a nitrile cover, which is resistant to abrasion and oil.
