New Age Industries (Southampton, PA) has introduced Clearflo 70 phthalate-free PVC tubing, developed in response to customer demand for fluid-transfer products that do not contain leachable phthalates such as DEHP or BPA. Some studies indicate that these chemicals, which are used to make certain plastic materials more flexible and easier to process, may have a negative impact on human health, said New Age Industries.

“Our customers want to use the safest possible tubing in their processes,” stated Gregg Donovan, Product Marketing Manager. “Removing the threat of a potential health hazard on our end removes the worry from our customers and lets them focus on their products.”
In addition to being phthalate-free, Clearflo 70 tubing meets USP Class VI requirements and conforms to FDA standards. It also is listed for use with food equipment by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF-51). Its glass-like clarity lets users view fluid flow and the smooth surface enhances flow capability. Clearflo’s flexibility along with its light weight and abrasion resistance allow it to handle a variety of chemicals, gases and liquids.
New Age stocks Clearflo 70 tubing in 50 sizes, with inner diameters ranging from 1/16 to 2 inches. Larger sizes are available. The company also offers braid-reinforced PVC hose for higher pressure usage, as well as fittings and clamps for attachment.
