Sanitary hose is a hose that meets food hygiene requirements, also called food-grade hose.
The difference between sanitary hose and industrial hose:
1. Sanitary hose can be used in very strict environments such as food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, etc .;
2. Industrial hoses are generally used in industry and are not used for conveying edible things, so the environmental protection and hygiene requirements for materials are not so strict.

Because the production of sanitary hoses is very strict, from the perspective of raw materials, raw materials that have passed food grade certification must be used, and the raw materials need to reach sanitary grade, and the requirements for granulation are more stringent. The hose production equipment is shared, and the workshop must use a dust-free workshop. The hoses produced in such an environment are really called sanitary hoses, so the price of sanitary hoses is higher than the price of ordinary industrial hoses.
