To preserve fluid integrity in all of its fluid transfer products, Saint-Gobain has developed Versilon SPT-70 FB IB, a new food and beverage dispensing tubing that imparts essentially no taste or odors to the transferred fluids.

Safe to be in contact with food, all layers of Versilon SPT-70 FB IB tubing are compliant with FDA, EU and GB food contact regulations.

The company said its Versilon SPT-70 FB IB’s smooth inner surface reduces the risk of particle entrapment and inhibits protein binding and bacterial growth, meaning cleaning and sterilization cycles become more effective as a result. Also, the company added, its tough braid reinforcement provides for use under elevated working pressures.

Manufactured with a platinum curing process designed to meet the most demanding requirements of food and beverage sanitary standards, Versilon SPT-70 FB IB silicone tubing can withstand repeated SIP and CIP cleaning and sterilization cycles, making it suitable for repeat-use applications.

Additionally, its flexibility, durability and chemical and temperature resistance provide a combination of characteristics required in many hot and cold food and beverage applications. Typical applications include coffee and brewed tea dispensing, ice cream and soft-serve dispensing, beer brewing systems, and food and dairy dispensing featuring bottle filling, hot filling and food handling.
