The Continental Purple Snake brewers hose is designed primarily for transfering beer throughout its manufacturing process. Purple Snake® in improved quality is the ideal hose for breweries, wine-presses, bottlers, and many other installations in the brewing, beverage, and spirits industry. Flexibility, pressure resistance, and long service life – even under extreme working conditions – are additional advantages, which make the hose the most popular all over the world. The new, optimized lining conforms to foodstuffs regulations and is absolutely neutral to taste and odor. The tube is suitable for pure alcohol up to 98%. The hose is resistant to conventional cleaning agents and disinfectants. Purple Snake® can easily be cleaned conventionally or by CIP installations. This hose is manufactured to European standards. Design Factor: 3:1

Our Continental Purple Snake hose assemblies are built using only 3-A Sanitary approved materials, like Dixon Sanitary Tri Clamp fittings and Dixon Sanitary shells - which are the spec fittings for this hose per the ContiTech Beverage Hose Crimp Manual. This is something that other suppliers cheap out on.

If you decide to purchase elsewhere, please verify that you are getting an assembly that uses 3-A compliant components and that they use the Dixon Sanitary fittings that are spec'd in for this hose.

As Continental Star Distributors, we are held to some of the highest standards in the industry, including annual audits, which is why our Purple Snake hose assemblies are some of the highest quality brewery hoses in the country.
