Notes

CLEARFLO Ag-47 is suitable for a wide variety of food contact applications and designed to protect your food or beverage product from harmful bacteria. It’s manufactured from a clear flexible Shore A74 phthalate-free compound with the addition of antimicrobial protection. The antimicrobial technology 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.

 

The antimicrobial properties protect the tubing against organisms that can cause growth-based discoloration and odors. Testing has proven that the active ingredients neutralize bacteria rapidly, and because the ingredients do not dissipate with use, they can be expected to offer protection for an extended time under normal conditions. CLEARFLO Ag-47 offers antibacterial performance to ISO 22196:2011.

Unlike some products CLEARFLO Ag-47 is 100% protected with the effective additive, which is present throughout the tube and not only on a liner, for protection on all surfaces. This is important in applications where the tubing is submerged or dipped into fluid or if any surface of the tubing is cut or becomes 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 bacteria growth. This can often happen at the fitting.

 

The active ingredients in CLEARFLO Ag-47 will have no detrimental effect on yeasts used for brewing.

 

Also available in a non-antimicrobial formulation as Clearflo® 70 unreinforced tubing.
