With the development of society, people’s living standard is improving day by day. In addition to meeting the basic food and clothing, people are also more in pursuit of health and safety.
In the pursuit of healthy diet today, food-grade silicone has gradually replaced food-grade plastic, food-grade silicone is more widely adaptable and has become a more popular raw material in the market.
Food-grade silicone tube belongs to the additive silicone, using the new imported food-grade silicone raw materials, after the scientific formula, using the intermittent method for the production of raw rubber, for the high tear resistance and high transparency of the vapor phase rubber, blending rubber of ultra-high and the lower hardness, functional blending rubber and other characteristics of the production of silicone tube.
Advantages of food-grade silicone tube.
1. Silicone for food is an inorganic polymer colloidal material made of silicic acid condensation, the raw material is silica gel, also known as silicic acid gel, is a highly active adsorbent material, the main component is SiO2-nH2O, its content is above 98%, non-toxic and tasteless, stable chemical properties, except for strong alkali, hydrofluoric acid does not react with any substances.
2. Compared with the traditional process of silicone tube, food-grade silicone tube is highly transparent, non-toxic and tasteless, resistant to high and low temperatures, high temperature resistance up to about 200 ℃, low temperature resistance of about minus 40 ℃, heating in a sealed environment will not cause its shape to revert. In addition, the product has the advantages of not hardening, not changing color, not yellowing, not spraying frost for a long time, especially solving the problem of spraying frost on black hoses and fading on blue products, which is well received by the industry.
Silicone tube main classification.
①Single-layer silicone tube: vacuum tube, no built-in steel wire, the color is mainly translucent, no steel wire translucent silicone tube is not suitable for infusion, continuous steam applications or high pressure environment.
②Wire silicone tubing: four layers of polyester fabric and stainless steel wire reinforcement. The temperature range is -60°C to +200°C, the color is translucent, the inner wall is smooth, the exterior is anti-adhesive, it can resist vacuum, and it can be cleaned by CIP and SIP.
③Transparent steel wire silicone: built-in stainless steel wire reinforcement, transparent color, normal application for material suction and discharge, not recommended for positive pressure conveying.
④Glass fiber mesh silicone tube: built-in glass fiber wire reinforcement, transparent color, can convey high temperature liquid, can be CIP and SIP cleaning, not recommended for vacuum environment.
Food-grade silicone tube applications.
Food grade silicone tubing has a wide range of uses, and can be used as medical equipment connection tube conduit; electrical instruments and other casing. And because its raw material food-grade silicone is environmentally friendly silicone, non-toxic, tasteless and harmless, often used as food products with tubes, food machinery with connecting tubes, drinking fountains, coffee pots, etc. In addition, many baby products will also be used to food-grade silicone tube, such as baby bottles used to straws, baby water cups conduit, etc..
Food-grade silicone hose is safe and harmless, practical and comfortable, and the quality is visible, and customers are more at ease. We will always carry out the goal of high quality and high standard to provide more quality products and services to our customers!
