What's Antimicrobial Tubing?

Antimicrobial tubingYou may have heard of antimicrobial wipes and antibacterial soap or first aid cream. But antimicrobial tubing? Yep, it's real.

Antimicrobial tubing is designed to inhibit bacteria growth and their ill effects. The tubing incorporates an antimicrobial agent, either on the inside of the tube or mixed with the material compound before extrusion for protection throughout the entire tube. The goal is to kill any bacteria on the tubing before it affects fluid flowing through it or fluid that the tubing may be dipped into.

NewAge now offers antimicrobial tubing called Clearflo® Ag-47. It's suitable for fluid transfer applications such as food processing and delivery, beverage transfer (including dairy and those containing alcohol), water lines, laboratory uses, medical devices and other clean fluid transfer processes.

Clearflo Ag-47 is manufactured from a clear, flexible, phthalate-free PVC compound. It contains an additive, tested in accordance with ISO 22196:2011 on over 50 different species of bacteria, to guard against microorganisms that result in taste transfer, odors and illnesses . . . nasty illnesses like E. coli, listeria, salmonella, legionella, MRSA, campylobacter and pseudomonas. The additive is throughout the tubing, not only on the interior as with other products, for bacteria protection on all tubing surfaces. This is particularly important in applications where the tubing is immersed in a liquid.

Listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF-51) for food equipment materials, Clearflo Ag-47 offers antimicrobial technology that is especially effective where there is infrequent use of fluids in warm or humid conditions and the tubing has no opportunity to dry thoroughly between uses. Application examples include beverage lines, food transfer and brewing applications. The tubing is made from non-toxic ingredients that conform to FDA standards and does not contain animal-derived ingredients.
