Akron, OHIO – August 8, 2011 – Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL) introduces a portfolio of critical connections solutions for residential water treatment applications, including ultra-violet sterilization and water transfer. These high-performance solutions help companies ensure product performance and reduce warranty costs by limiting maintenance and repair expenses incurred by their customers. Furthermore, SGPPL’s solutions meet stringent regulatory standards, ensuring water safety and quality.
This portfolio of critical connections solutions includes a diverse range of products to address the needs of the following applications:
SGPPL’s solutions include the Chemfluor® range of flexible high-strength tubing for use in UV sterilization systems. High-clarity Chemfluor® heat-shrink tubing offers excellent protection for the quartz sleeve that surrounds and shields the UV lamp, while maintaining clarity and ensuring UV light transmission.
Critical connections solutions for UV sterilization have been created to promote ease-of-use. Designed for Clean-in-Place (CIP) convenience, no disassembly is required. Chemfluor® tubing simultaneously protects quartz components from losing efficacy during the cleaning process, minimizing downtime and associated costs.
In addition, flexible Chemfluor® tubing works well in another variation of the UV sterilization process. Chemflour® can be formed into a high-clarity coil that allows water to pass around the UV lamp, maximizing sterilization effectiveness.
To ensure optimum performance under high water pressures in residential plumbing, SGPPL’s offers a range of critical connections solutions that incorporate Tygon® tubing. Designed to connect both UV sterilization and water filtration systems to residential networks, Tygon® tubing provides greater mechanical strength and pressure resistance without sacrificing flexibility. Tygon® outperforms alternative tubing formats that require frequent replacement, ultimately reducing total system costs.
Saint-Gobain offers a range of tubing that is specifically designed to protect the flavor of water – imparting no taste or odor of its own. Tubing solutions are made of plastics that are FDA-approved for food use, and/or adhere to NSF/ANSI Standards 51 and 61.
“At Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, we are focused on developing solutions that give manufacturers peace of mind that the integrity of their systems is protected and reassuring home owners that their water is pure and safe to drink,” says Yves Stefani, Global Market Leader, Habitat, Process Systems Division at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics.
