Why choose silicone rubber for the food and beverage industry?

Silicone rubber has numerous properties which make it ideally suited to the food and beverage industry.

Our food grade suraSil™ silicone tubes are widely used across the sector especially within the dairy industry due to the demand for higher quality standards and improved yields, which has seen silicone rubber replace organic rubber. Silicone Engineering’s suraSil™DS range of dairy tubing delivers durability, flexibility and hygiene performance and firmly sets us apart from the competition.

Alongside our dairy tubing is our high-performing suraSil™ vending tubing, which is compliant with FDA, BfR and WRAS regulations.

Silicone rubber has many benefits that improve lifespan within the food and beverage industry including:

Temperature rating

Silicone rubber has extreme resilience to high temperatures up to 230°C, making it a suitable solution across various food and beverage applications. For example, our suraSil™ tubing for vending machines is ideal for serving hot drinks vending such as tea and coffee machines.

Sealing properties

Silicone rubber, with its exceptional sealing properties, is well-suited to cooking and mixing processes ensuring contamination is prevented. As all of our silicone is FDA approved, food manufacturers can be confident that the silicone rubber is completely safe when in contact with food.

Hygiene

The smooth inner surface of suraSil™ food grade silicone tube reduces the build-up of residue, making it a safe and hygienic choice for food and beverage applications.
