Extended durability with adapted hoses for jam.
At Skånemejerier's facility in Malmö, they experienced short service life of the hoses used for jam transports.
Since starting with tests from Alfotech with Beverage+ as hose, the service life has been significantly extended. From the previous 3 months to now 12 months and upwards, since the change from the traditionally used food hose for jam.
“With qualified advice from Alfotech, you get a specialized partner who can find the most optimal combination of Price, Quality, and Customisation. By means of the interlock system for our pressed couplings, you also increase the safety aspect and obtain improved hygiene during your product transports. Fast service and a comprehensive warehouse also help with rapid changes in operations," says Björn Eriksson, Head of Technology & Maintenance.
With Beverage+ they have changed from traditional natural rubber to bromine butyl rubber (BIIR), which is more adapted for fruit acids from jams and juice products.
