The reasons for following safe practices when it comes to gas appliances is obvious. Dormont's Blue Hose® has a reputation for its safety, reliability and long-lasting performance in commercial kitchens. As the gold standard in gas connectivity, the Dormont Blue Hose® was developed more than 40 years ago at Dormont manufacturing. With millions of installations worldwide, Dormont is known as the preferred and specified product in restaurants.
The Dormont Blue Hose®
The Dormont Blue Hose® is recognized by more than its color. Engineered specifically for caster-mounted restaurant equipment, Dormont's blue hose technology is made with a heavy duty, flexible, corrugated 304 stainless steel tubing wrapped in a tight-weave stainless steel braid to prevent stretching. Specially designed rotation technology reduces stress at the ends, and the antimicrobial PVC coating will inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew. The best part? This coating will not shrink in high temperature settings.
Does Your Gas Hose Need Replacing?
Avoiding a gas leak should be one of your top concerns when it comes to your natural gas hose. Look for signs of fraying, loose connections or obvious damage that would allow gas to seep through. Sometimes loose connections could indicate a mismatched part. If you're concerned about mismatched gas parts, give us a call at 1-888-388-6372 and our knowledgeable customer service team can help you out.
Keeping your gas hose and gas connectors clean is one of the first steps in extending the life of your gas hose. Periodically you should also add some lube to your gas connectors to ensure clean, quick disconnects.
