COLLECTOR® FLEX

The flexible hose with plastic helix for milk collecting trucks
COLLECTOR® FLEX is a further development of the established COLLECTOR® quality. Thanks to the flexibility of the new integrated plastic helix, the hose shows an excellent handling, even at low temperatures. Its white lining made from natural rubber is absolutely neutral to taste and odour, resistant to raw milk as well as to commonly used cleaning products. The NR cover is resistant to abrasion, UV and ozone.
