Silicone Rubber Tubing for the Dairy Industry
The dairy and agriculture sector demands a highly specific type of tubing from a quality engineering specialist, and Silicone Engineering is delighted to supply the specific silicone rubber products needed to serve this industry.
Quality demands for improved hygiene standards, lifespan and improved milk yields have seen silicone rubber products replace the more traditional organic rubber across a wide range of applications, predominantly dairy tubing. The combination of silicone’s durable, flexible and hygienic properties together with the quality engineering specialist knowledge from Silicone Engineering, this demand is met with excellence.
With its extreme temperature resilience, excellent elongation and resistance to weathering, silicone is an ideal material for dairy tubing, which is often exposed to the elements and subjected to harsh treatment in the milking parlour. It offers a robust solution perfectly suited to all-weather conditions, no matter how severe.
Silicone Engineering’s suraSil™DS is our standard dairy tube. Below is a technical data table showing the mechanical properties:
Other dairy tubing grades:
- suraSil™DX – Extreme high tear dairy tubing for ultimate durability
- neutraSil – antimicrobial silicone proven to prevent growth of harmful bacteria
- Twin Air Pulse Tubing – Used for efficient milk flow
