New from tubing manufacturer NewAge Industries is Clearflo Ag-47 antimicrobial tubing. Suitable for a variety of fluid transfer applications, Clearflo Ag-47 is designed to protect liquids from harmful bacteria that can result in taste transfer, odors and illnesses. Applications that can benefit from Clearflo Ag-47’s antimicrobial technology include food processing and delivery, beverage transfer (including dairy and those containing alcohol), water lines, laboratory uses, medical devices and other clean fluid transfer processes.
Clearflo Ag-47 is manufactured from a clear, flexible non-phthalate PVC compound. It contains an additive, tested in accordance with ISO 22196:2011 on over 50 different species of bacteria, to guard against microorganisms that result in taste transfer, odors and illnesses . . . illnesses such as E. coli, listeria, salmonella, legionella, MRSA, campylobacter and pseudomonas. It should be noted that the additive is throughout the tubing, not only on the interior as with other products, for bacteria protection on all tubing surfaces. This is particularly important in applications where the tubing is immersed in a liquid.
Listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF-51) for food equipment materials, Clearflo Ag-47 offers antimicrobial technology that is especially effective where there is infrequent use of fluids in warm or humid conditions and the tubing has no opportunity to dry thoroughly between uses. The tubing is REACH and RoHS compliant, made from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA standards and does not contain latex or animal-derived ingredients.
The transparent tubing handles temperatures between -40°F and 125°F (-40°C and 52°C) and is stocked and immediately available in ten sizes ranging from 3/16” through 1/2” I.D.

A Comparison of Fittings
“A Comparison of Fittings” focuses on barbed fittings, push-to-connect fittings, compression fittings and cam operated couplings. It details how each works with tubing to ensure a good seal for proper fluid or air transfer. For instance, the report’s Barbed Fittings section notes that in order to obtain a proper seal, the O.D. (outer diameter) of the barbed area on the fitting must be slightly larger than the I.D. (inner diameter) of the tubing. The Push-To-Connect Fittings section offers tips such as making sure that the tubing used does not have exterior scratches, as this could compromise the seal.
PVC vs. Polyurethane A Tubing Comparison
PVC and polyurethane are thermoplastic materials that can be formed into a variety of shapes, including tubing and reinforced hose. Both materials are useful in numerous applications. But depending on factors such as temperature, chemicals and outdoor use, one product may perform better than the other in a particular application. This white paper examines each materials benefits, drawbacks, common uses and physical properties.
