Saint-Gobain develops new Versilon SPT-70 FB IB reinforced silicone tubing

A smooth inner surface limits particle entrapment.

Committed to preserving 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 odours” to the transferred fluid. 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.

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

Manufactured with a platinum curing process designed to meet demanding requirements of food and beverage sanitary standards, Versilon SPT-70 FB IB silicone tubing is able to withstand repeated SIP and CIP cleaning and sterilisation cycles, making it ideal 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. Some applications include coffee and brewed tea dispending, ice cream and soft-serve dispensing, beer brewing systems, and food and dairy dispensing featuring bottle filling, hot filling and food handling.
