Brewery Tubes and Hose
Brew tubes and brewery hose are a special type of tubing that manufacturers mainly make for use in beer brewing and coffee brewing. You can also use brew tubes with other types of beverages.
To best serve customer needs, manufacturers can make brew tubes using a number of different plastics. Common brewery hose varieties include: vinyl tubing, reinforced vinyl tubing and silicone tubing. Each type offers something different. Vinyl tubing, for example, is very inexpensive and easy to find. Its downsides are that 1) it only really works with low temperatures, and 2) it tends to cure at the end. Silicone tubing, on the other hand, can handle temperatures upwards of 500?.
In addition to varying materials, manufacturers also offer brewery hoses in varying sizes. They offer not only different lengths, but different tube widths and tube wall thicknesses. Different thicknesses offer different options for your brewing applications like liquid transfer, siphoning and aeration. For example, while it takes longer to transfer liquid through a thin tube, thin tubing also permits the creation of fewer air bubbles. To help you keep your lines organized and reduce the risk of accidental cross-contamination, manufacturers can send you brew tubing with different colors and labeling.
