Contitech Vintner Reserve EPDM HoseContitech (formerly Goodyear) Vintner EPDM Reserve Hose is a crushproof hose designed for the winery & brewery industries. Contitech has proven to be the most reliable and popular brand. The Vintners EPDM is made of high-quality materials on a smooth chrome mandrel. What makes this hose unique is that it is a lightweight, 'crush resistant' alternative to traditional softwall or steel wire reinforced hoses. Vintner Reserve EPDM has a special polyester monofilament helix that will not corrode or rust and will tend to spring back to shape when crushed. It performs equally well to Chlorobutyl Vintner Hose when handling beer, wine, and non-oily liquid foodstuffs (and some spirits), but it is also designed to withstand a greater number of chemicals and substances (including ozone) that may be found in a brewery, winery, or distillery (refer to EPDM chemical resistance charts). This allows an increased range of cleaning options and better coupling retention when exposed to high temperatures. It is made of FDA compliant compounds and is USDA and 3-A sanitary standard 18-03 compliant. We offer Vintner EPDM in both bulk and as a hose assembly with Tri-Clamp Ends.
