Hoses and couplings that together form a reliable hose line, must, like all objects and equipment that come into contact with foodstuffs, be of such quality that they do not negatively influence the products they transport. Technology company Continental has announced that its fittings systems meet all the requirements and standards for professional couplings in the foodstuffs and beverages industries.
Continental has announced a new development of the Pagufix 3000—the Pagufix 4000 swaged fitting—which is being unveiled at Anuga FoodTec, March 20–23, 2018 in Cologne.
The ferrule of the new coupling is fitted with a chamfer that is designed to allow the sleeve collar to slip more easily into the nozzle collar during the coupling process. Additionally, the tooth geometry on the ferrule has been adapted to the hose adapter. According to the company, this helps to ensure an optimal fit between the ferrule and fitting. Like its predecessor, the Pagufix 3000, the Pagufix 4000 is available in special designs, which are adapted to meet specific operational requirements.
