Silver-ion additive permeates all surfaces of NewAge antimicrobial tubing

Antimicrobial tubing for fluid-transfer applications in the medical, food and beverage and other sectors as well as for laboratory use has been introduced by NewAge Industries (Southampton, PA). Clearflo Ag-47 antimicrobial tubing is designed to protect liquids from harmful bacteria that can result in taste transfer, odors and illnesses.

NewAge Clearflo Ag-47The tubing is manufactured from a clear, flexible, phthalate-free PVC compound. The material contains a silver-ion additive, tested in accordance with ISO 22196:2011 on more than 50 different species of bacteria, to guard against microorganisms such as E. coli, listeria, salmonella, legionella, MRSA, campylobacter and pseudomonas. The additive is present throughout the tubing, not just the interior, to provide bacteria protection on all tubing surfaces.

Listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF-51) for food equipment materials, Clearflo Ag-47 offers antimicrobial technology that is especially effective with the infrequent use of fluids in warm conditions such as beverage and food transfer. It is REACH and RoHS compliant, made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards and does not contain latex or animal-derived components.

The transparent tubing withstands temperatures between -40°F and 125°F (-40°C and 52°C) and is immediately available in 10 inner diameters ranging in size from 3/16 to 1/2 in.
