At Drinktec 2013, Saint-Gobain shares insights on its safe, smart and sustainable tubing solutions for beverage transfer and dispensing applications.
From the recently launched Tygon S3® range of phthalate-free tubing solutions, Tygon S3® B-44-3 is a clear tubing that allows easy visual monitoring of flow, while being light-weight and flexible for quick installation. Made from a bio-based material, it also offers added sustainability benefits while providing the same level of durable and consistent performance and taste-free and odor-free properties as Saint-Gobain's established Tygon® branded offerings.
Saint-Gobain is also presenting its range of silicone tubing that offers both taste-free and odor-free properties as well as thermal resistance. Saint-Gobain's silicone solutions are translucent, water-repellent, and anti-adhesive and exhibit exceptional resistance to degradation from UV rays, oxygen and ozone, making it an ideal in the transfer of high-purity or high-tech fluids.
Additionally, Saint-Gobain's thermoplastic elastomer tubing is engineered as a long-life pump- tubing for a variety of applications, including in peristaltic pumps. It offers a pump life of more than 500 hours. With temperature resistance, superior flex life, low extractibles, this solution provides an alternative to PVC and silicone products when there is a longer pump life required.
