Improve Performance and Reduce Costs with Saint-Gobain Critical Connections Solutions



Solutions meet rigorous food safety and performance requirements

Akron, OHIO - Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL) introduces safe and high-performance critical connections solutions for food and beverage applications, including dairy product transfer and beverage dispensing. SGPPL's solutions are designed to help companies reduce total systems costs, maintenance and repair expenses, resulting in minimized operations downtime. In addition, the solutions meet stringent food regulatory standards, ensuring product safety.

Dairy Product Transfer

SGPPL's critical connections solutions combine the Gladiator® range of high-performance hoses and ReSeal® fittings for use in all stages of the dairy transfer process - from the dairy farms, to tanker trucks, to plant storage, and within the plant itself. The crush-resistant Gladiator hoses are rated for high-pressures. They guarantee a secure and flexible connection between systems and pipes for loading and unloading raw products in high-traffic areas. SGPPL's ReSeal fittings are completely reusable and offer savings of up to 50% on standard replacement costs over time.

SGPPL's critical connections solutions for dairy transfer have been created with ease-of-use in mind. Designed for Clean-in-Place (CIP) convenience, no disassembly is required, minimizing operational downtime and associated costs.

Dairy Processing

To ensure optimum performance under the high pressures and temperatures associated with dairy processing, SGPPL offers critical connections solutions that incorporate SaniGard® hosing and ReSeal fittings. SaniGard hoses are specifically designed for higher temperatures and demanding chemical applications. They can withstand frequent cleaning and sterilization-in-place (CIP and SIP) without imparting taste or odor.

Beverage Dispensing

SGPPL's critical connections solutions incorporate a range of Tygon®-branded tubing for use in beverage dispensing processes. These solutions minimize the potential for bacterial growth and promotes a sanitary fluid path thanks to a smooth, non-porous tubing surface that inhibits particle entrapment. It also protects flavor consistency of beverages - imparting no taste or odor of its own - while maintaining high performance and withstanding extreme temperatures, corrosion, and varying pressures.

Tygon tubing is both NSF listed under Standard 51 and also compliant with FDA regulations and meets the stringent, listed 3-A Plastics Standard Criteria.
