In this white paper, Saint-Gobain addresses flexible tubing considerations for Bag-in-Box (BiB) cola delivery systems. While BiB systems aim to uphold flavor integrity, the tubing used to transport flavoring has potential to compromise the quality of the final product.
Saint-Gobain’s bio-based Tygon S3™ B-44-3 flexible tubing for beverage transfer is the gold standard in the food and beverage industry due to its ability to minimize not impact to the taste or odor of products it transfers. As a phthalate-free solution, it also has excellent non-wetting properties that facilitate complete drainage and permit simple flush-cleaning. As a lightweight and flexible tubing solution, B-44-3 is easy to handle and can be put into service quickly.
A comparison between Tygon S3™ B-44-3 and a competing multi-layered beverage transfer product was conducted by a leading independent organoleptic and sensory properties lab. Strict odor and taste criteria were applied. Tubing flexibility and smoothness were also considered in the final conclusions. Read more about the results here >>
