  • Factors for hygienic and taste-free hose lines
  • Targeted dialog with master brewers

The international industrial partner ContiTech helps breweries comply with the German Beer Purity Law, which is now 500 years old. When it comes to ensuring product purity in all phases of the process chain, the cleanliness of the brewing equipment is just as important as the ingredients. In order to ensure hygienic, taste-free and durable connections for transporting fresh, flavorful and healthy beer, clearly defined factors need to be observed. That is why, as the German Beer Purity Law marks this major anniversary, ContiTech is addressing master brewers directly in a broad-based marketing and information campaign with the aim of conveying extensive product expertise.

The focus here is on the right selection of hose material and fittings, care in cleaning and disinfecting the hose lines, and the benefits of regular inspections. This is very important since sensitive areas such as the food and beverage industry also demand that users know a great deal about legal regulations and safe cleaning and disinfection of the hoses. ContiTech’s engineers are constantly thinking about the best formula for this. The result is the Purple Snake. In addition to its high degree of purity, this hose also displays impressive robustness, durability, and an optimum price/performance ratio over its entire service life.
