Vinyl tubing is the dirtiest part of any beer system because it is the most difficult to clean. The rough wall surfaces provide perfect pockets for bacteria to settle and grow.
Micro Matic continues to drive innovation in Beer Line Technology with yet another first! We are the first to develop a FLEXIBLE tube to replace vinyl!
Real world testing shows that the bacteria count is dramatically lower with XtraFlexmaster® tubing than in vinyl tubing. Once line cleaning occurred, the bacteria count in the vinyl tube, quickly jumped back up to it’s highest levels and continued to grow. The count in the XtraFlexmaster® remained stable.
