Unreinforced pvc tubing is an extremely versatile and economical flexible tube solution. This type of pipe is suitable for low-pressure food and drink production, drinking water, and industrial use.

With an excellent flow rate, the risk of blockages is greatly reduced. If a blockage does occur, however, the transparency of this clear PVC tube makes it easy to identify and rectify.

This tube offers numerous other advantages, such as abrasion and corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, high flexibility for easy packing away, and minimum toxicity PVC formulation that imparts no flavour or odour to the products it conveys.

  • Food safe.
  • REACH, RoHS and BSI ISO 9001 compliant.
  • Full visibility of the flow of contents.
  • Easy to extend or replace.
  • Chemical resistant.
  • Highly flexible.

This clear PVC tube is ideal for food and drink production and catering use, however, it also suits a wide range of other uses and industries, such as:

  • Air & gas lines.
  • Chemical lines.
  • Pharmaceutical & medical.
  • Laboratory & research.
  • Instrumentation.
  • Material Handling.
  • Pump feed & discharge.
  • Refrigeration.
  • Water & fluid lines.
  • Food & beverage.

We are also able to manufacture this range of tube in a high specification, low taste material as specified by the UK brewing industry. Please get in touch with our sales office to find out more.

This is a low-pressure hose solution with a maximum recommended working pressure of 30 PSI. For increased working pressures, consider instead the reinforced PVC hose.

The hose remains highly flexible without collapsing, even at low operating temperatures. The ideal temperature range falls between -20°C and 55°C. The hosing can withstand occasional usage of up to 65°C.

The clear PVC tube is an economical and low maintenance solution. Its excellent flow rates prevent sediment build up, reducing the need for monitoring and replacements. As the tube is clear, it is easy to identify any blockages and replace that section with a new length attached with interconnects. The tube is also highly resistant to a wide range of chemicals, acids and alkalis.
