This pneumatic food-grade tubing is flexible, non-toxic, and suitable for a wide range of manufacturing operations. It is made of ester-based polyurethane, which is nonconductive and has good chemical and UV radiation resistance. It is also resistant to oil, weather, ozone, heat, and electricity. It has a Shore A Hardness rating of 85 for resistance to abrasion and tearing. It has an operating temperature range of -95 to +185 degrees F. It meets FDA standards for use with wet and fatty food contact surfaces. This flexible transparent tubing allows for tight bending and is suitable for food and beverage, pneumatic control, automated machinery, robotics, lubrication lines, fluid circuitry, and instrumentation applications, among others.
Plastic tubing is used to transfer liquids, air, or solids, and it is characterized by a round, rectangular, or square shape and a hollow center. Plastic tubing is crimp-resistant and varies in bend radius (flexibility), chemical resistance, wall thickness, durometer hardness, and temperature and pressure handling abilities. The clarity of plastic tubing may be transparent (clear), translucent (semi-clear), or opaque (solid), and the tubing's coloring may indicate suitable applications. Barbed fittings are used to connect tubing or redirect flow in a fluid handling system. Plastic tubing is used in a wide variety of industries, such as agriculture, automotive, laboratory, and medicine. Applications for plastic tubing include blood and fluid handling, peristaltic pumps, electrical and thermal insulation, analytical systems, and food and beverage handling, among others.
