SOUTHAMPTON, Pa.—NewAge Industries Inc. added a new style of reinforced hose to its BrewSavor product line.
The butyl-lined, monofilament hose is designed to resist kinking and crushing, maintaining shape for optimal flow in brewery transfer applications, according to a NewAge news release.
"Brewery operations can be fast paced, and hoses can get run over by forklifts or caught between machinery," Joe Linquist, NewAge's craft brew specialist said in a news release. "This hose is built to return to and maintain its original shape.
"A hose that won't remain crushed means a longer hose service life for the brewery and a better return on their process equipment investment."
The new hose features a chlorobutyl rubber liner for purity and unrestricted flow, and minimizes bacterial entrapment and flavor contamination, NewAge said. It is multi-layered and reinforced with a monofilament polymer helix for suction and discharge applications, and is rated for full vacuum at 29 inches of mercury with a general temperature range between 40 and 240 degrees Fahrenheit. It meets Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Department of Agriculture and Canadian Food Inspection Agency standards, and its butyl compound conforms to 3-A Sanitary Standards for No.18-03. The hose is free of PVC, phthalates and animal-derived ingredients and handles clean-in-place processes.
The hose is available assembled and ready to ship in standard lengths of 10, 25 and 50 feet, with non-stock lengths are available on request.
The BrewSavor product line will be on display at the Craft Brewers Conference in Denver through April 11 and will be displayed at the American Homebrewers Association's National Homebrewers Conference in Providence, R.I. June 27-29. There, Linquist will present "Draft Beer Dispensing for Homebrewers," an educational session about designing, assembling and maintaining dispensing systems.
