Polyethylene Food Safe TubingPolyethylene food and beverage tubing is a cost-effective choice that brings flexibility, crack resistance, and many other benefits to any application. Made from linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), this food-grade tubing features a high burst pressure, great tensile strength, and is tasteless and odorless. Characteristics include:
- Temperature range of -40ºF to +150ºF
- 3:1 safety factor working pressure
- Vacuum rated to 28” Hg
- 50 Shore D hardness
Polyurethane Food Grade TubeExtremely versatile, 70A and 90A durometer polyurethane is an excellent material for food-safe tubing. It is resistant to many influences, including kinking, abrasion, chemicals, mold, and bacteria growth, while displaying low gas permeability. However, polyurethane tubing’s most notable trait is its excellent memory, allowing the tube to flex and stretch before returning to its original shape. Other specifications are:
- Naturally clear tubing with several colors and tints
- Suitable for air logic applications
- Various temperature ranges, working pressure, and vacuum ratings, depending on your selected tube
- UV stabilized options available
Other Plastic Food & Beverage TubingAlong with polyurethane and polyethylene plastic food-grade tubing, we offer a variety of tube made from other food-safe materials, including:
- Nylon Tubing
- Polyvinylchloride (PVC) Tubing
- Kynar Tubing
- Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene (FEP) Tubing
