Description

Keep your beer tasting fresher, longer! EJ Beverage has reinvented how beer gets from keg to glass with their cutting edge Ultra Barrier Silver™ beer tubing. The unique silver lining used in Ultra Barrier Silver has been proven to be 100% effective against the top 4 beverage spoiling bacteria for up to 2,000 liters of flow. The tubing is also PVC and BPA free, standards observed in Europe for years for beer tubing that are just recently being followed in the USA. 

The tubing was lab tested by the famed Weihenstephan University in Germany and  then prior to release was tested for years at The New Belgium Brewery.

  • Antimicrobial - 100% effective against top 4 beverage spoiling bacteria
  • PVC Free and BPA Free - Contains no DEHP, phthalates or other plasticizers
  • Environmentally friendly production = does not emit dioxins
  • Extremely low extractable / extremely low leachables
  • High flexibility
  • Remains flexible at lower temperatures
  • Ultra-low permeability
  • Barrier properties
  • Temperature range of -40 to 125° F
  • Working pressure of 88 psi

3/16" is the best size for most beer lines under 9' in length. Ideally, 6' provides the correct restriction for serving beer in the 8-14 psi range.

Technical Specifications: 3/16" line provides 2.2 lbs of restriction per foot. Ideally pounds of resistance should equal pounds of applied pressure. 3/16" line holds 1/6 of an ounce per foot. PVC Free. 7/16" OD

"By the Foot" quantity ordered will be shipped as a single uncut length.

I would not forgo proper cleaning and sanitizing, but it probably doesn't hurt to have a little extra help. I also like liquid tubing that stays flexible even when cold.

Stephen on Nov 17, 2020
Just got my tubing installed in a new keezer with the intertap flow control faucets. I'm having a lot of foaming issues and I can't dial my system in. The lines are all ten feet. I've tried low pressure at 5psi and high pressure at 20psi. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
Jason Offord on Mar 24, 2019
Can this tubing be used with Duotight fittings? If so, which one?
JOHN DUNLOP on May 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I only like to use Duotight with sturdy PEX or EVA barrier type tubing. Any tubing with flexibility will be more difficult to engage and more likely to leak. I like Ultra Barrier Silver but haven’t tried it with Duotight directly. I have used Duotight-to-short piece of PEX to-quick disconnect (H550) to Ultra Barrier, however. It works great for me that way.
Can I use this as gas line?
Zac Evans on Jul 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s primarily used as a liquid line. The internal diameter of the tubing dictates if it has the capacity to hold a gas under pressure. Most liquid lines don’t possess this. I would just order gas line to be safe. You don’t want to wake up with an even worse headache. If you’re in a pinch at the moment and need it “now” then I’d go to a local shop if possible.
What is the OD of this hose? Thanks!
Daniel Breen on Mar 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Daniel - Item information can be found toward the bottom of the product's web page. 'Technical Specifications: 3/16" line provides 2.2 lbs of restriction per foot. Ideally pounds of resistance should equal pounds of applied pressure. 3/16" line holds 1/6 of an ounce per foot. PVC Free. 7/16" OD'
I have read that the beer line calculators aren't accurate with this. I have 6' lines on my kegerator now at 14psi and 38°F. I still have foaming issues. I read you have to double what the calculators say with this line? Is this true?
Dan Blum on Jun 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: For such a short draw, sometimes calculators can be inaccurate. Better suited for 20+ feet. Try lowering to a serving pressure below 10psi.
Does it leach the silver into the beer over the 528.34 gals of it's antimicrobial life? After the first 528 gallons should the line be replaced?
Jason Wagner on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jason - TUB400 offers extremely low leachables, after the 2000 liters of beer, it's likely the antimicrobial begins to degrade. Replacement is up to the consumer and preventative maintenance practices.

Not 30 ft as advertised
I bought the 30ft hose to use 7.5 ft lengths on my keezer. They shipped me a 27.5ft hose, so now I can only do 3 lines instead of the 4 I need. Thanks a lot! What a disappointment for the money I spent.

Antimicrobial Tube
So I seen this on a video and they said this is the best for kegerators. I broke mine down and cleaned all parts and added the tubing.

Beer taste GREAT! and I feel good that it will keep me safe from the bad microbes that could develop in the tubing.

Thanks for getting it here and glad to promote.

Best Beer Line
Things to like about this tubing: It's flexible but doesn't crimp closed when bent, and the antimicrobial silver coating minimizes the chances of growing something you don't want in your beer line. In my experience it's the best available tubing for beer lines. The antimicrobial lining doesn't eliminate the need for periodic cleaning, but it provides additional assurance that it's really just your beer that you're tasting. Nota bene: Most beer lines are way too short, about 5'. You can reduce foaming by increasing the length to 8-10'.
