Hoses for Food Industry

  • "The Non Retention System NRS®"
  • NRS® fittings are designed to avoid differences in diameters between the nipple and the hose
  • The 90° and 45° elbow fittings and special assemblies are made with orbital welds. All straight fittings are made without welds.
  • Traceable.
  • The inside surface of GECITECH fittings has a slight roughness (maxi 98µ) and can be improved on request by electro-polishing.

Main Applications:

The VNRS® is a reusable fitting in 316L stainless steel, available for various fitting types (CLAMP,DIN, Flanges,...) which can be assembled on all our Silicone Tressil® hoses.

This screwed fitting allows many assemblies and disassemblies without the need for special tooling and without the risk of galling. In addition, it is cleanable with normal CIP procedure.
