CONTINENTAL WASHDOWN HOSES - FOOD GRADE


For food-grade applications, contamination is simply not an option. That’s why food manufacturing plants turn to Continental to provide superior cleanliness where it’s most needed. Continental integrates Microban® antimicrobial technology to a complete line of washdown hoses, helping to extend hose life, prevent contamination and boost product safety.

Microban® is an ingredient, infused into the hose cover during the manufacturing process. When microbes come into contact with the product surface, Microban disrupts key cell functions so that microbes cannot grow or reproduce. Critical for food manufacturing plants to extend hose life. This antimicrobial protection works 24/7, 365 days a year to keep surfaces cleaner longer.

Continental Washdown Hoses are GREAT FOR THE FOOD INDUSTRY:

The Microban® antimicrobial material is infused into the cover of Fortress washdown hoses to help inhibit the growth of mold, mildew and bacteria during pressure washing. Combined with the hose’s super-abrasion resistance for greater durability and oil resistance for improved longevity, the integrated antimicrobial protection of Microban® technology helps keep your washdown hose cleaner between uses and prevents deterioration of the hose when used with good sanitation practices, including periodic cleanings of the hose.

HOW IT WORKS

Built-in Microban® technology protects certain hose covers by prohibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mildew and fungi.

The result?

With Microban® technology, hoses remain cleaner and safer for longer.
