Tritan

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 tube. It has...

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,...

More Tight Radius Bends

Here above we have an example of a larger OD tight-radius-bends. This one is a 4.750 OD tube bent on a 13" center-line radius. You will notice that the right side of the bend has an extended tangent and the accuracy of the bend is measured by the inside wall...

Busada PETG Tubing For Puck Conveying

Puck Conveying: Busada tubing has been long-known for excellence in pneumatic conveying of cups, containers, caps and such. Our butyrate line enters its 7th decade. We also supply a USFDA NSF 51 approved PETG (Provista) tube (UVO stabilized) and Tritan (tough as...

Clear, Rigid Transparent Butyrate Pipe VS. Clear PVC Pipe

Busada extrudes Butyrate (CAB), and Tritan pipe in nominal sizes from ½” to 8” and in Sch 10, 40, and 80. We extrude other schedules to order. The picture below is from a recent run of Butyrate 6” Schedule 80 Pipe. Our customer’s engineer was not happy with the...

Tight Radius Large U-bend

We have a bunch of blogs on tight-radius bends, and of U bends. Here is one that we made for one of our puck-conveyance customers who needed something pizzazzie for a trade show. Cablevey is an international leader in puck conveyance and uses our tubing for sight...

Three-Dimensional Bends

We can bend to almost any design. Here, we received a challenge from a breakfast nook company for a three-dimensional bend on a 3.259 OD Tritan tube. Pictured here is the model, we cannot show the final piece. The drawing shows the challenge. Here is the result....

Tritan Offset

We were recently asked to make an offset of a 5" Sch 10 Tritan pipe. While Tritan has excellent Mechanical, Optical and Thermal Properties, it takes some skill to bend it. Offsets are particularly difficult, but here we have a Tritan bend in its cooling blocks.

Macro-Algae Bio-Absorption Filters

Pax Bellum contacted us regarding their macro-algae bio-absorption filters for the aquaculture and aquarium industry. The devices use a central light assembly consisting of a plurality of LEDs affixed to a water pipe or heat pipe. They were looking to replace the...

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 tube 3D to come under the...
