A major cosmetic manufacturer was experiencing repeated failures of supply hoses used to transfer lotion to containers being filled in a rotary filling machine operation. The plastic reinforced tubing being used along with maintenance shop assembly produced hose “assemblies” constantly leaked at the fitting to hose connection due to “worm gear clamp” assembly practices. The use of Versilon™ TLCTCO hose assemblies with crimped sanitary end connections eliminated leaks, reduced the stress on the filling head mechanism and allowed CIP procedures to be implemented reducing set up time for product line change over. TLCTCO’s bend radius is approximately 20-25% less than conventional rubber covered fluoropolymer line hose assemblies with force to bend values featuring the same 20-25% reduction. This product feature may allow an application to use a short hose which is especially useful in restricted space applications commonly encountered in filling machine applications.
