Kuraray Plastics Co., Ltd. (headquarters: Osaka, president: Katsuhiko Kishi) has developed a high-concentration disinfectant plastic hose for use in chicken coops.
Kuraray Plastics has sold a white-lined, fiber reinforced spray pump hose for disinfection and spreading agricultural chemicals. Against growing concerns over bird influenza in recent years, more poultry farms are using more potent disinfectants as a means to prevent an outbreak of bird influenza. Poultry farmers and related parties have asked for the development of a hose more resistant to chemicals, leading Kuraray Plastics to develop the fiber-reinforced plastic hose.
The hose for chicken coop disinfection is reinforced with four layers, arranged in order from inside to outside: nylon resins, polyurethane resins, polyester reinforced fibers, and another layer of polyurethane resins. Compared with previous polyvinyl chloride-based fiber-reinforced spray pump hoses, this lighter-weight fiber-reinforced plastic hose is easier to use as it is less prone to hardening during the winter, as it excels in pressure resistance, chemical resistance and flexibility. The exterior of the fiber-reinforced plastic hose also excels in resistance to abrasion, damage and oils for sturdy long-lasting use.
Inner diameter of 13mm, outer diameter of 20mm, one fiber-reinforced layer, allowable pressure of 5MPa, cut length of 50m and 100m, with ISO screws
