Description
 
We've made the move to Accuflex's Bev-Seal Ultra 235 tubing for our beverage assemblies and all the folks at the shop here use it in their own home kegerators too!

3/16" ID x 5/16" OD

Flushable Glas-Flex™ liner - allows changeovers from even the most pungent flavors with simple flushing procedures.
NSF-Certified products - certified under standard NSF-51 for food equipment and NSF-61 for drinking water systems.
Dual-Barrier construction - flushable Glas-Flex™ inner liner surrounded by a seamless extruded barrier layer in a coextruded polyolefin tube.

The Good:
  • The super slick inner liner is completely flavor neutral. Beer can sit in these lines for days and you can start pouring a pint WITHOUT dumping a single drop.
  • The tubing can make use of the very simple push to fit connectors such as John Guest and DMfit. This is a major time saver for initial builds and subsequent maintenance.
  • Much cheaper than all other so-called premium tubing.
The Bad:
  • The super slick liner does not provide as much back pressure per foot as other tubing. If you want to run a balanced system based on 10-12psi, you'll want to run ten feet of tubing per faucet. It's a good thing it's inexpensive. To reiterate, use about 1 foot of line per PSI you intend to run and it doesn't hurt to estimate a little long. 12 PSI? Use 12 feet per faucet.
The Ugly:
  • The tubing is a little more rigid than other beverage lines you've used in the past. It will still coil up into a radius of about 2" minimum but just use a few zip ties and it's back under control. This is a small price for the benefits.

As mentioned, we REALLY like using the push-fit connectors for this tubing. We stock fittings to thread onto the black ball lock QD (pushFFL) and to thread on the back of a faucet shank (pushSHANK). The picture below shows the application. THIS item does NOT include any connectors. It is just the tubing. Note that we offer a kit will all the items shown in the picture.


If you must terminate the tubing on a hose barb, such in the case of a tower shank, it is possible. For 3/16 barbs, simply dip the end of the tubing in very hot water for a few seconds and push it on. To get it over a 1/4" barb, you must dip the end of the tubing in very hot water for 2 minutes and flare the open end with a tapered object (such as small needle nose pliers or a pen cap, etc). Care must be taken to avoid damaging the thin liner.

All tubing is sold by the foot. If you want 10 feet, order quantity 10.

5 of 5 Best tubing on the market. July 26, 2019
Reviewer: Michael Sharpe from CORRALES, NM United States  
I had scoured internet forums for what other Brewers considered to be the best beerline available and I had seen multiple references to this particular tubing. I was expecting something like regular 3/16 inch vinyl tubing but was almost shocked that it was a semi rigid line. It was far from what I was expecting the tubing to resemble but it only takes a few minutes of working with it to tell that this tubing is vastly superior than all the rest. I ordered 14 ft just for the heck of it since it was double the amount that was recommended for me at nearly a mile elevation and its insanely inexpensive and I get beautiful pours. Amazing quality. Oxygen permeability is probably the lowest on the market and being a rigid line with a high quality nylon liner inside provides a nearly perfect laminar flow. If there were 10 stars it would get it. I'm already going to order another coil of the exact same line next week for my other tap.

5 of 5 Definite flavor difference September 22, 2018
Reviewer: Brian Helzer from Hesperia, CA United States  
I never thought my old vinyl lines were imparting any flavor. But apparently they were. These made a big difference. I don't really notice a difference in the foam though, but I never had a problem with foam after the first pour anyway. But I'm glad I switched over to these. I think with the really slick inside it will also help things like beer stone and such from forming. Making line cleaning much quicker. They were kind of tough getting them over the barbed fittings, but I was expecting that so it was no big deal.

5 of 5 Buy More Than You Think August 2, 2018
Reviewer: Erik Stepelton from Orlando, FL United States  
Great Stuff - The description for the product lays out almost everything you need to know about this line.  It won't carry flavor from past beers, doesn't give you that plastic taste like vinyl lines do, and the beer that does sit in the lines is still drinkable instead of having to dump it.  One note, in my experience, I think the estimate of length needed in the description is a bit low.  I started with 20' of line on each of my taps, and cut back little by little until my homebrews were pouring well.  Most of those lines ended up about 15' for stuff running at 8-12 PSI.  The one irregularity is commercial kegs.  Most of those are carbonated to 2.7 volumes or even more, and I found I needed almost 25' of line to run a Cigar City Jai Alai keg at 37* and 13 PSI.
