NewAge Industries introduces 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 laboratory uses, medical devices, and other clean fluid transfer processes.

Clearflo Ag-47 is manufactured from a clear, flexible PVC compound that is free of phthalates. It 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 Silver Ion ingredient is present throughout the tubing for 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 handles temperatures between –40°F and 125°F and is immediately available in ten sizes ranging from 3/16- through ½-in. ID.
