Food grade high temperature tubing for hot water dispenser

6 posts in this topic

The plastic tube between the 190 degree hot water tank and the spigot from which the water is dispensed has developed a leak.

The current tubing measures .300 inches ID and the metal outlet pipe it attaches to measures .420 OD.

The tubing should be rated for high temperature (the current tube has 275 degrees maximum printed on it), and it

obviously should be beverage grade.

Any suggestions what material specification to use for this and where to get some?

A few months ago I asked if anyone knew where to get food grade high temperature tubing to replace the leaking tube on the hot water dispenser on my sink. No answers. Anyway, here is a source; http://www.mcmaster.com/?orderview=new#medical-grade-silicone-rubber-tubing/=hw8sjz

This is good stuff; they have both non-reenforced and a reenforced versions. Not cheap, but it seems to be better than what came with the unit.
