Saint-Gobain is pleased to introduce the new Versilon™ XFR, an extra-flexible and lightweight suction and discharge hose designed for food and beverage transfer applications. Versilon XFR hose combines ergonomic handling and easy cleaning into a single food and beverage transfer solution. With a lower weight per foot than traditional suction and discharge hoses, Versilon XFR is easier to bend and attach to pumps and tanks. The hose is compatible with many food product types such as dairy, beer, wine, and spirits.
Versilon XFR has an inner bromobutyl rubber tube that is FDA compliant and reduces the risk of flavor contamination. The hose’s reinforcement is made of strong 316L stainless steel wire helix and multi-ply synthetic fabric. The smooth, convoluted blue hose cover is abrasion, ozone, aging, oil and chemical resistant and is also FDA compliant. Its wide corrugated low friction material is easy to clean and leaves no marks when dragged on the floor. The hose assembly conforms to the 3-A Sanitary Standard 62-02. To further ensure strict hygienic standards, XFR can be cleaned via CIP or SIP methods. Download the Versilon XFR datasheet here >>
Saint-Gobain offers complete hose and fitting solutions. Specially designed reusable ReSeal® fittings can be used with the Versilon XFR hose to provide a complete and cost-effective solution for food and beverage applications. Additionally, Saint-Gobain offers a full line of permanent crimp style fittings specifically designed to work with XFR for the highest standards in both quality and reliability. For easy handling and additional protection, HoseGard™ hose support can be added to elevate the hose from the floor in washdown applications to protect your investment.
