March 20, 2015, Aurora, OH – Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics has expanded its Tygon product portfolio to include a new dispensing tubing product that helps improve hygiene in coffee machines with milk.

Tygon
SPT-50-LF is a proprietary, platinum-cured silicone formulation tubing
specifically designed to address the root cause of milk fouling
in coffee machine applications: protein absorption, the company said in a press release.

Milk
fouling, or the buildup of organic material, can cause an unwanted taste
or odour in food and beverages, which can negatively impact product
quality and consumer brand perception. The accumulation of organic
deposits on the walls of a dispensing tubing product makes rigorous
cleaning compulsory, not only for sanitary reasons but also to ensure a
proper fluid flow.

Engineered from silicone materials, the tubing is designed to prevent film formulation and improve hygiene in coffee vending machines. The tubing’s ultra-low
total organic compound ensures contamination from
extractables in food and beverages is kept to a minimum,
safeguarding product quality and brand equity.

“The
new Tygon SPT-50-LF tubing product reinforces Saint-Gobain’s strong
leadership in the food and beverage market, as well as our continued
dedication to research and development that keeps our OEM customers on
top of regulatory compliance, and helps protect food brand owners from
risks associated with hygiene maintenance,” said Iuliana Nita, global
marketing manager, food and beverage, for the Process Systems business
unit
of Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.

Tygon SPT-50-LF tubing
was designed with universal applicability across a variety of coffee
vending machines. Additionally, Tygon SPT-50-LF has excellent
flexibility and is suited for food and beverage dispensing at
temperatures ranging from as low as -62 C (-80 F) to as high as 260 C
(500 F).
