Recently, there have been many reports of silicon rubber (SR) hoses becoming brittle in juice factory within one month of purchase. The damage is a new phenomenon, and its cause is unknown. We have collected the damaged hoses attached to UHT sterilizer (ultra-high-temperature) in juice factory and examined them for chemical changes. In addition, we have analyzed the hose-washing chemicals (NaOH and HNO333) and the exposure UTH temperature have direct effect on the brittleness of the silicon hose in juice factory.
