POWTECH: Masterflex to showcase its solutions for the pharmaceutical and foodstuff sectors

Masterflex is present on Powtech 2017!

We will be present on our stand 106 in Hall 1 in Nuremberg from 26 to 28 September, where you can meet us and discover our latest developments and solutions for the transport of powders, granules, bulk materials and liquids.

"Over the three days of the fair, we will be presenting to visitors our perfect hose and connector solutions for handling the most diverse kind of media in a wide range of commercial applications," explains Christian Horstkötter, Sales Director Industrial Hoses Europe. This year, Masterflex will be placing a particular emphasis on its products created specifically for the pharmaceutical and foodstuff industries.

And with the needs of these sectors in mind, Masterflex has designed a new suction and transport hose made of polyurethane (PUR): the Master-PUR FOOD A Multi. Thanks to its innovative composition, it is compatible with the food simulants of groups A to E and also remains permanently antistatic (surface resistance R0 < 109 Ohm). The novel premium product has been tested and authorised in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 and is also approved for use in the USA. "It can thus be used in an even wider range of foodstuff transport applications and offers palpable benefits to our clients in the form of reduced storage costs and increased safety in terms of use," adds Horstkötter.

Also to be admired on our stand will be our Combiflex connectors, consisting, for example, of cone, fixed and swivel flanges, sockets and cuffs made of PU. There will also be Combiflex components suitable for the foodstuff sector, such as clamps, hygienic fittings and VA stainless steel sockets. "All our fixed connectors are characterised by the fact that they exhibit no sharp edges or cross-sectional narrowing internally - in other words, at the points of transition from hose to connector," points out Horstkötter in addition.

Among the product highlights will be the absolutely smooth and abrasion-resistant transport hoses of the Master PUR Inline and Performance ranges that are now also available in 15 and 20 metre variants in addition to the standard 10 metre size. Their seamlessly smooth and absolutely abrasion-resistant surfaces and exceptional flexibility make these hoses ideal for the transport of extremely abrasive media and other problematic materials, while they also provide for excellent material flow and are easy to clean.

Also on display will be the Master PROTECT system, consisting of steel pipe bends with a special PU inner lining with a special profile that significantly increases the operating life of particularly susceptible sections of pipeline bends.

And that's not all. We will also be putting the spotlight on our templine® heated hoses that can be used wherever liquid or gaseous media need to be transported within a specified temperature range from A to B. The hoses not only maintain the temperatures required, but can also increase them to some extent where necessary. This is made possible by the ingenious combination of flexible hose, patent-protected heating concept, thermal isolation and an external hose that provides the system with excellent mechanical robustness and also ensures the transported medium is heated to a consistent temperature. The new heating concept consists of a closely interwoven textile in which spiral temperature conductors have been incorporated that keep the hose stable but flexible.

"POWTECH is a venue where there is brisk interaction between supply and demand from home and abroad over the three days of the fair," concludes Horstkötter "We get to meet purchasers and decision-makers, and have the opportunity to talk to them and show them our hose and connection products. At the same time, we also have the chance to demonstrate our many years of expertise in this area."
