Our tubing provides the benefits of a wide range of temperature and pressure suitability, broad chemical compatibility and is made from non contaminating materials. Common applications are in water purification, water conditioners, ice makers and misting systems. LLDPE is more robust than traditional low or medium density polyethylene and is recommended for use with cold and intermittent hot water. Our tubing is made from FDA approved materials and is NSF International certified. John Guest Polyethylene tubing is designed for use with John Guest Super Speedfit push-in fittings, John Guest Shut-Off Valves and virtually all standard tubing connectors.
This tubing is produced in Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved materials and are therefore recommended for food quality applications.
For use of with chemicals or potentially aggressive liquids, please refer to our Technical Service Department.
John Guest LLDPE tube is suitable for pneumatic applications providing pressure is maximum 10 bar @ 20°C (150psi @ 70°F). At elevated temperatures (50°C+) mineral oil will degrade LLDPE tube and, therefore, LLDPE tube used in pneumatic circuits should be periodically checked and replaced if necessary.
John Guest products generally require little maintenance but as a minimum we recommend routine visual inspection. Frequency of visual inspection will depend on severity of application and risk of failure. If after visual inspection John Guest products appear damaged, cracked, charred, discoloured, heat distorted or corroded they should be replaced. Any product that is or appears to be leaking should be replaced.
Product life is affected by the severity of the application, the hostility of the working environment and contact with aggressive chemicals or liquids. It is therefore important that specific replacement intervals be considered by specifiers/users/customers based on previous service life or when failure could result in unacceptable downtime, damage or injury risk.
