Tritan Tubing, The Largest Anywhere

Tritan: Our first extrusion of Tritan tubing was big in itself. It produced the largest Tritan tube in America to that point. The 5″ OD x .250w tube was designed for a home-consumer company. Now we extrude Tritan up to 10″ in diameter. Tritan is a monster...

USFDA Or NSF Compliant Tubing

Our customers often ask us what grades of USFDA or NSF compliant tubing that we extrude for food contact. Generally, for caps, closures, and cups, FDA has not established compliance. Thus, UV stabilized butyrate (our formula 576E) is considered the standard. However,...

Coffee Roaster

In July we received a print to bend tubing for a trade-show coffee roaster display. We had two weeks to meet a deadline. We elected to make the bends out of a 3″ OD butyrate tubing with a .125 wall. The bend radii were as tight as 8″ CLR. Dry ice worked as...

The Roasting Plant has just opened up a beautiful facility in Denver. We work with Advance Design Solutions to do our small part in this. We make the tubing and bends. The Roasting Plant uses cutting-edge technology in their stores, and the result is truly a mix of...

Fruit Chute

Recently we were given the challenge to produce a tight radius bend to replace a metal fruit chute (peaches). The bend needed a 6″ ID and a tight 12″ radius. We were able to accomplish this by flaring a 5″ ID tube to 6.5″ ID and bending the...

Blue Star Bends

For top-of-the-line clarity in bends, nothing comes close to our Provista (PETG) line with monitored air packing. For clarity one has to control the packing material. This method was developed for a line of retail-coffee-house bends. Nothing is clearer, and this...

Roasting Plant Pneumatic Art

We have been making bends for The Roasting Plant as they build new and upgrade existing restaurants. They and their engineers from Advanced Design (FL) have tight tolerances and every bend is different. We extrude Provista tubing (PETG) and coat it with our ACS...

Flame Polishing Provista Plastic Tubing

Provista (PETG) tubing, when properly extruded and polished is superior to cast acrylic in every way. When flame polished, it is spectacular for clarity. The picture above shows how a Provista tube shines when flame polished. This 6″ OD tube, FDA approved and...

Provista Bends And Sleeves

We recently filled an order with specialty bends for Provista (PETG) UVO. This clear, transparent conveyance system is UV stabilized and FDA/NSF approved. We also supplied sleeves for the order. In order to maintain NSF standards, the sleeve is thick-walled. This...
