Silicone Products Used in the Dairy Industry

The demand for silicone rubber tubing has grown rapidly over the past several years in the dairy industry. Higher standards and improved quality have seen silicone rubber products replace older, out-dated products used in the industry. Silicone is the ideal material used for dairy tubing as it offers the highest hygiene performance, it’s extremely durable, and it’s also extremely flexible.

Hygiene – This is probably the most important aspect of silicone tubing used in the dairy industry. Silicone has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as being safe to use in a variety of different food industries including the dairy industry. Silicone tubing has been shown to help reduce the risk of bacteria build up leading healthier dairy products for human consumption.

Flexibility – Silicone tubing for the dairy industry is extremely flexible in a wide temperature range which helps to make sure that the tubing will not expand during the heat of the summer months or crack up during the cold of the winter months.

Durability – Silicone tubing for the dairy industry is specially crafted to ensure that it will last for a very long time even though it’s designed to be used several times a day. If the wear and tear of the dairy industry doesn’t have any negative effects on silicone what do you think it would mean for other industries considering switching to silicone tubing?
