Saint-Gobain has developed Versilon SPT-70 FB IB, a new food and beverage dispensing tubing that imparts no taste or odours to the transferred fluids. Safe for contact with food, all layers of Versilon  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, making cleaning and sterilization cycles become more effective. Also, 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 easily withstand repeated SIP and CIP cleaning and sterilization cycles, making it ideal for repeat-use applications.

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