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.


How can silicone be used?

Silicone sponge is used in a variety of applications but generally its purpose is to seal, insulate or protect an application from flame, heat, water, dust or general weathering.

Sealing profiles

Custom sponge extrusions (tubing, profiles, cords and sections) are used commonly as seals for LED units and other electrical enclosures

The combination of silicone’s durable, flexible and hygienic properties

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



Why choose silicone rubber tubing for the dairy industry?

As an engineering technical specialist, Silicone Engineering’s high performance suraSil™DS range of dairy tubing is designed to deliver the highest durability, flexibility and hygiene performance which sets us far apart from the competition.


suraSil™DS dairy tubing has been specially formulated by our engineering specialists to provide a strong wall structure and is tested to withstand the daily wear and tear of dairy parlours. Its durability makes silicone dairy tubing the ideal solution for this industry.


suraSil™DS dairy tubing stays flexible up to -60°C, ensuring no cracking or splitting occurs during cold winter temperatures. This flexibility allows dairy and agricultural workers the reassurance that the silicone can withstand all weather conditions and be constantly reliable.


Our dairy tubing has been specially designed with an ultra-smooth inner surface to reduce the risk of particle build up from the milk. This increases the efficiency of daily hygiene cleaning, reducing the risk of the build-up of harmful bacteria.

neutraSil™ - antimicrobial silicone tubing

neutraSil is an antimicrobial silicone independently proven to prevent bacterial growth such as E. coli, Salmonella and MRSA. Compliant to FDA regulations and EC 1935/2004, neutraSil™ is used in dairy, food manufacturing and healthcare sectors to improve safety and hygiene standards. As an engineering specialist, we are delighted to provide the highest quality silicone tubing to safely serve the dairy industry.
