Neglected hose assemblies can pose serious risks to food and beverage plants. Unfortunately, they are overlooked too often.
Steve Glatz, sales and marketing manager at Dixon Australia, says premature failures of hose assemblies can arise from a host of different reasons.
“Improper application is the most common cause of failure. The maximum operating pressure of the hose, the recommended temperature and the fluid compatibility of the
hose are all factors that should be considered.”
