Designed specifically for cold beverage dispensing applications involving elevated pressure, Saint Gobain’s Tygon S3 B-44-5X IB is a clear, reinforced tubing, compliant with applicable FDA Food Additive Regulation (21 CFR 170-199) and EU Food Contact Regulation No 10/2011. It also meets NSF-51, NSF-61, and 3A Sanitary Standard 20-27 requirements. Lightweight and easy to handle, Tygon S3 B-44-5X IB tubing readily bends around corners and obstructions, requiring minimal couplings and fittings. Its flexibility can save up to 30% the footage and much of the labor required to install rigid stainless steel, glass tubing or piping.

Withstands cleaners and sanitizers

Owing to its smooth, non-porous inner bore, Tygon S3 B-44-5X IB is virtually taste and odor-free. It also offers outstanding resistance to harsh alkaline cleaners and is unaffected by commonly used sanitizers. Moreover, it resists particle entrapment and resulting bacterial growth. And its excellent non-wetting properties facilitate complete drainage and increase the overall effectiveness of cleaning, making it the ideal choice in food, beverage, dairy, and other bacterial-sensitive applications. 

By combining Tygon S3 B-44-5X IB tubing with Saint-Gobain's ReSeal® Reusable Sanitary Fittings, complete assemblies can be constructed, providing a contamination-free environment that maintains the purity of fluids being transferred. ReSeal assemblies are easy to install and can increase manufacturing efficiency by providing a fluid path that is able to be repeatedly sterilized using many conventional clean-in-place methods.
