High Performance Fluoropolymers for Food & Drink

Sourcing high performance fluoropolymer material is critical for the food & drink industry. Our fluoropolymers have unique properties which set them apart from the more ‘general purpose’ plastics and easily meet strict regulatory requirements within the industry.

Fluoropolymers FDA ComplianceOur product range is ideal for a variety of stages; from food & drink preparation, beverage dispensing to monitoring and analysis of food or drink.

Preparation, Preservation, Disinfection

Unaffected by Ozone and Chlorine, Polyflon offer a comprehensive range of PTFE, FEP, PFA and PVDF tubing and PTFE convoluted tubing that is used extensively in Ozone Generation equipment and Chlorine dosing water treatment plants.

Beverage Dispensing

Hot beverage dispensing machines present a challenge to most polymeric materials: intermittent high temperatures over a long period of time coupled with the requirement for a biologically harmless, inert tubing product. Polyflon’s PTFE, FEP and PFA tubing represent a tried and tested, regulatory compliant solution. Build-up of internal residue within our tubing is greatly reduced due to very smooth internal surfaces, leaving the taste and aroma of the beverage unaffected, ensuring consistent quality. Our PharMed® BPT and Norprene® peristaltic pump tube assemblies combine high performance, low maintenance and FDA conformance. To enable efficient re-conditioning/maintenance of dispensing machines, we offer cut-to-length tubing to customer specification for easy fitting.

Monitoring and Analysis Instrumentation

Whether it’s an in-house Quality Assurance Team testing production line samples or a 3rd party testing laboratory involved in contract analysis, sourcing an effective fluid handling solution that meets strict technical criteria whilst producing highly accurate results within tight operational budgets can be a challenge.

Polyflon PTFE, FEP and PFA tubing is the solution. With no leaching or contamination risk, such FDA conforming consumables are usually required during maintenance of monitoring and analysis instrumentation. Polyflon’s range of inert, high purity tubing in coils or ‘cut-to-length’, meet all industry requirements cost-effectively whilst retaining high-performance throughout continued testing. They’re also resistant to repeated cleaning cycles with aggressive fluids; making them sustainable and cost effective.
