Antimicrobial Tubing – More Sizes Now Available
Did you hear that Clearflo Ag-47, NewAge's brand of antimicrobial tubing, is now available in seven additional sizes, expanding its range up to 1" I.D.? New sizes include 1/8", 5/8", 3/4" and 1" I.D. with various wall thicknesses.
The NSF-listed tubing protects liquids from harmful bacteria that can result in taste transfer, odors and illnesses and is designed for applications like beverage and dairy transfer, food processing, water lines, medical devices and clean fluid transfer.
NewAge's Sales Manager, Stephen Kuhns, noted that "Although we just introduced the product last year, we were receiving requests for sizes above one-half inch. In customary NewAge fashion, we answered that need."
Clearflo Ag-47 is unique in that its antimicrobial properties are throughout the tubing, not just on an inside liner. This is important in applications where the tubing is submerged or dipped into fluid or if any surface of the tubing becomes cut or compromised. Tubing products that only offer a liner layer of antimicrobial protection risk the liner becoming separated from the cover. If the antimicrobial layer is cut, the tubing under that cut becomes susceptible to bacterial growth. This can often happen at the fitting.
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.
