How Do We Make Brewers Hose Assemblies?
Step One: Custom Brewers Hose Order
Step Two: The Hose Selection
Hoses can be ordered in lengths from 1 metre to 40 metres, with a bore size of 1", 1.5", 2", 2.5", 3" and 4". Once we've received your order and we know your exact requirements, we are able to select the correct size and type of hose and then cut it to the correct length.
Step Three: The Fittings
Our custom brewers hoses can come with either a tri-clamp or RJT fitting. Tell us your exact requirements and we select the hose tail fittings and crimping ferrules which get swaged onto the hose to form the end to end hygienic hose assembly.
Step Four: Reference Number
In order to identify hoses, as standard, we mark the fittings and ferrules with a reference number and the date it was manufactured. This allows the hoses to be traced when needed.
Step Five: Quality Assurance
Before a hose is assembled we check all of the components are working correctly and suitable to be assembled together.
Step Six: Assembly
Once the brewers hose components have been checked for quality, we assemble the parts as per your exact order requirements.
Step Seven: Swaging
When we connect the fittings to the hoses, this is called swaging or crimping. The ferrule and the hose tail are locked together and then crushed with the hose in the middle. This method creates a hygienic connection between hose and fitting, reducing the risk of bacterial contamination.
Step Eight: Testing
Once the brewers hose is assembled, it is then pressured tested to make sure that there are no leaks. We also ensure that the fittings are correctly swaged. Proper testing is conducted to make sure the hose is safe and will perform properly.
Step 8: Deliver to Your Door
Once your hose has been prepared, we ship it directly to your door. We promise to deliver all hose assemblies with seven business days. Shipping is free to mainland UK addresses, plus, upon request, we can also offer international and next delivery.
