Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
A significant challenge for the beverage industry has been to assure that businesses that dispense their product adhere to the stringent cleaning standards required to eliminate the buildup of bacteria and biofilm in beverage delivery lines. This biofilm can adversely affect taste and the quality of the product at the consumer level. Because of this reality, the beverage industry has long sought after a solution to help increase consistency and quality of their product between cleaning cycles.
Extensive testing was conducted by the prestigious Research Center Weihenstephan for Brewing and Food Technology in Freising, Germany. It was concluded that the FlexeleneTM Silver (PVC Free) Tubing was 100% effective in reducing the concentrations of 3 of the most common beer and beverage spoiling bacteria after 2,000 liters of flow as well as statically. The most astonishing result is the complete elimination of Lactobacillus brevis, which is determined to be the most frequently detected microorganism in beer.
The study concluded that, “Eldon James’ FlexeleneTM Silver Tubing is now expected to have a significant impact on the food and beverage industry.”
