Antimicrobial tubing reduces the risk of bacterial transfer
Clearflo Ag-47 antimicrobial tubing (photo) is now available in an additional seven sizes, expanding its range up to 1-in. inner dia. The NSF-listed tubing protects liquids from harmful bacteria that can result in odors, taste transfer and illnesses, in numerous applications such as beverage and dairy transfer, food processing, water lines, medical devices and clean fluid transfer. Its antimicrobial properties exist throughout the tubing, not just on the inner surface, says the company, improving protection against bacteria such as E. coli, listeria, Salmonella, Legionella, Campylobacter Pseudomonas and others. The transparent tubing is said to be especially effective in applications where there is infrequent use of fluids in warm or humid conditions, preventing thorough drying between uses. It uses no phthalates, latex or animal-derived materials, and conforms to NSF-51. — New Age Industries, Southhampton, Pa.
