Southampton, PA — Clearflo Ag-47, NewAge Industries' antimicrobial tubing, is now available in an additional seven sizes, expanding its range up to 1" I.D. The NSF-listed tubing protects liquids from harmful bacteria that can result in taste transfer, odors and illnesses and is designed for applications such as beverage and dairy transfer, food processing, water lines, medical devices and clean fluid transfer.
NewAge's Sales Manager for its Plastics Division, Stephen Kuhns, said, "Although we just introduced the product last summer, we were receiving requests for larger sizes. Clearflo Ag-47 is unique in that its antimicrobial properties are throughout the tubing, not only on the inside, and customers with needs for sizes above a half inch were interested. In customary NewAge fashion, we answered that need."
Clearflo Ag-47's antimicrobial ingredient guards against bacteria such as E. coli, listeria, salmonella, legionella, MRSA, campylobacter and pseudomonas. It is especially effective in applications where there is infrequent use of fluids in warm or humid conditions and the tubing does not have an opportunity to dry thoroughly between uses. This is particularly important in applications where the tubing is submerged in fluid.
Clearflo Ag-47's additional features include:
- National Sanitation Foundation listed (NSF-51) for food equipment materials
- No phthalates, latex or animal-derived ingredients
- Made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards
- Transparent for visual flow contact
- Well suited for food and beverage applications including non-fatty aqueous, milk and alcoholic products
- Heat sealable
- REACH and RoHS compliant
Clearflo Ag-47 offers a Shore A hardness value of 74 ±5 and withstands temperatures from -40°F to 125°F (-40°C to 52°C). It's well stocked in 17 sizes, ranging from 1/8" through 1" I.D. New sizes include 1/8", 5/8", 3/4" and 1" I.D. with various wall thicknesses.
