Dormont Blue Hose Accessories

When it comes to gas and the gas appliances in your restaurant or institutional kitchen, what can be more important than safety? The reasons are obvious. In fact, you know you can’t afford to have your kitchen facility not meet the standards of applicable safety codes. So, when you need to connect your appliances to your gas supply, it only makes sense to use a blue hose gas connector, not only because of its excellent reputation, but more importantly because of its track record for safety, reliability, innovation, and performance. It’s no exaggeration to say that the blue hose is the gold standard in gas connectivity. It was the world’s first commercial kitchen gas connector, invented more than 40 years ago at Dormont Manufacturer, the company that led the development of the standard to which all foodservice gas connectors must comply. With millions of installations and counting, no other gas connector comes anywhere near the blue hose and its status as the preferred and specified product in food service. Today’s blue hose is the result of continuous improvement, with impressive design features unheard of when it was originally introduced. Features like tightly-woven stainless steel braid that prevents the corrugations from stretching when the gas equipment is moved. The heavy-duty stainless steel corrugated tubing gives the blue hose superb bending properties and extremely long life. Anti-microbial PVC coating for helping to prevent grease buildup and inhibit the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew. A coating that won’t shrink, even in the high temperature environment behind kitchen gas equipment. And stress guard rotational and fittings that reduce stress at the connector ends, and even make it easier to install the blue hose. Because of these, and other features, the blue hose offers a host of benefits in addition to its safety, increased mobility, higher kitchen productivity, and cleaner kitchens. Did you know that the blue hose is made in Export, Pennsylvania? At a manufacturing facility right outside Pittsburgh, and that it carries a lifetime warranty? There’s another very important aspect of Dormont and blue hose gas connectors you should know about: the highly innovative gas connector accessories that when used with the blue hose make commercial kitchens even safer and more efficient and productive. Snapfast, the only one-handed, push-to-connect, quick disconnect available in the foodservice industry. Designed specifically for commercial kitchens, Snapfast makes moving gas equipment for cleaning and maintenance exceptionally easy, because only one hand is needed to reconnect it to the appliance. Plus, Snapfast includes a thermal shut off feature that automatically shuts of the gas when the internal temperature exceeds 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Dormont’s Swivel MAX multi-plane rotational device is another remarkable connector accessory designed by Dormont engineers. Use on either one end of the blue hose or both, this unique device gives the blue hose a full 360 degree range of motion. It reduces stress on the gas connector, makes moving appliances so much easier for cleaning and maintenance, and expands aisle space, because gas equipment can be moved closer to walls. The Swivel MAX is an excellent solution in situations where the gas manifold is situated in a low, or other non-ideal location. Another connector accessory exclusive to Dormont is the Safety Quik, a truly unique device that does the work of both a quick disconnect and a shut off valve. A cleverly designed all-in-one device, it prevents the gas connector from being disconnected until the valve handle is turned to shut off the valve, and it will not allow the valve to be opened until the blue hose is reconnected to Safety Quik. It also includes an automatic thermal shut off feature designed to activate between 250 and 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Dormont’s Safety-Set is a highly effective positioning system for returning caster-mounted equipment to its correct location after being moved for cleaning or maintenance. This is important because equipment needs to be positioned properly beneath fire suppression and kitchen ventilation systems. Safety-Set satisfies national fire protection codes 17-A and 96, which are being enforced increasingly throughout the country. Safety-Set will withstand up to 1000 pounds of crushed force, and unlike other positioning systems, it has an open floor design. That means that the caster wheels sit directly on the floor, not on any part of the positioning system, eliminating the need to re-level the appliance. Safety-Set accommodates 4”, 5”, and 6” casters. So when it comes to connecting your foodservice gas appliance, connect with confidence. Don’t take a risk, especially when you consider all that blue hose gas connectors offer, and especially consider the exceptional benefits you get, with Dormont connector accessories. Improve safety, productivity, efficiency, cleanliness, and space.

Make sure your gas appliances are hooked up safely with the Dormont 16100 SafetyQuik gas connector kit! This kit comes with a 36" long, 1" diameter Dormont blue hose with the first and only quick disconnect valve combination fitting on the market to make your place of work and your appliances safe.

The Safety Quik valve employs a number of safety measurements while acting as a convenient quick disconnect fitting. When opened to allow gas flow, the hose cannot be disconnected until the valve is turned off. Similarly, the valve cannot be turned on until a hose is connected to the fitting. To attach and disconnect the hose, simply push the end of the hose into the fitting until it snaps into place.

This 16100 gas connector kit comes with 2 SwivelMAX connectors to help keep stress off one end of the hose. SwivelMAX fittings allow movement at either end of the hose, and a full 360 degree multi-plane range ensure flexibility and a longer life for the hose and plug. This fitting replaces rigid street elbows to make movement easier on your appliances and the hose.

The Dormont blue gas hose included with this kit is made of woven corrugated 304 stainless steel tubing covered in an antimicrobial PVC coating that slows the growth of bacteria, mildew, and mold on the gas connector. The hose also has an internal thermal shutoff feature to protect against dangerous temperatures near the gas supply.

In the event of temperatures higher than 350 degrees Fahrenheit, a small polymer ring in the male end of the coupling melts, and a heavy-duty spring loaded in the coupling shuts of gas supply immediately.
