Product Description

100 feet of 3/16” inner diameter Accuflex Bev-Seal Ultra tubing.   FREE SHIPPING TO THE 50 STATES!

This tubing is a favorite among the homebrewing and kegging crowds for its ability to inhibit taste and odor permeation.   

From the manufacturer:  Unsurpassed oxygen and flavor protection combined with flushability in a co-extruded tube. 

  • 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.
This is a semi-rigid tubing.  The easiest way to install this tubing on the end of a beer shank is by using Birdman Brewing part ACCU-SHANK.  To install on an MFL threaded keg disconnect, use Birdman Brewing part ACCU-MFL.  
 
To install on barbed fittings, we recommend soaking this semi-rigid tubing in boiling water for approximately 30 seconds to soften prior to pressing firmly on a 3/16" hose barb.  (A 1/4" barb can also work by widening the tubing opening a little more.)  Alternatively, a heat gun works well to make the tubing soft.  We've also found that a small needle nose pliers can be effective at expanding the opening.  We recommend securing the tubing with a hose clamp to ensure it is leak proof. 
 
NOTE that the tubing provided by the manufacturer for this size of tubing is white, without the red stripes as shown in the picture.

  1. Great tubing, great price, quick service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2013

    This tubing is what I was looking for. I purchased the 100 ft roll - very economical. For kegerator lines I use 10 feet per line to reduce foaming at a good serving pressure. It is a bitch to slip it on a 3/16 inch barb, so take the advice and use a heat gun (preferable) or heat a nail punch, ram it in the end to expand it, allow it to cool, then quickly remove the punch and stick it on the barb. I did this, works great, no leaks whatsoever, and no clamp necessary. Use a standard, inexpensive PVC pipe cutter to snip the line.


  2. Tricky to work with, but worth it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2013

    This stuff is a little try to get it onto 1/4" barbs. I heated a pair of needle-nose pliers in some boiling water with the hose and was able to stretch the tube with the hot pliers enough to get it onto the barbs.

    Performance wise, this stuff is great! I was so worried about getting off flavors from letting beer sit in the lines. Some of my friends had reported getting plastic flavors in their beer after just an hour with the cheapo vinyl lines. Not this stuff! Even after a week or more of not pulling a tap I can not taste any off flavors in my beer. Totally worth the initial head ache.


  3. Great product, just get yourself a heat gun if using 1/4" barbed fittings 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2013

    The hot water method didn't work well for me, but the heat gun method was great. My process: warm the tube and a nail set, put a bit of lubricant (lubri-film, petrol-gel, veg oil, etc) in the tube, then push in the nail set. Heat gently with heat gun, then bang the whole thing down on the table repeatedly until the tubing pushes down the nail set. Let cool then remove the nail set and slip it right onto the 1/4" barbed fitting. If using MFP fittings, you could probably skip the nail set and go direct. I use clamps but that may not be needed.

    One nice benefit is the line really keeps its coil, so bundling all the lines together in the keezer is a snap. And the tubing is conveniently numbered every 2 ft, so you don't need to measure any lengths!
