You’ve bought all of these excellent ContiTech hoses like the ChemOne™, Viper™, and FabChem™ but, like children, they get dirty and you need to get them clean. So how do you do that?
It’s a good idea to avoid dishwashing liquid and a really long sponge. Here’s how you do it.
- Use steam to clean the hose.
- Make sure the hose is not connected to anything and is open during steam cleaning.
- Steam temperature must be a maximum 288 ̊F (142 ̊C).
- Take time to clean the hose for 5 to 10 minutes but no longer than 15 minutes.
- Be careful to avoid scoring the tube (liner) with the steam nozzle or wand.
- Avoid prolonged steam jet contact with a specific area of the tube (liner). Prolonged contact can cause tube damage.
Now you know how to clean those hoses and it has GOT to be easier to clean hoses than squirming children. If you need cleaning materials, contact us at 800-6RUBBER (800-678-2237) so we can talk about what you need.
