The company doesn't sell to the public. Their customers are typically biotech and pharma. Their material is certified as food safe up to FDA standards, which are the most stringent in my experience. The size of the material appears to be spot on from what I've been able to measure. It's not that expensive by the metre, but they don't provide it by the metre! I'll test a few variations and report back as soon as.

Hi McMullan, fellow norwegian here. I'm interested in this as well. PM me for details about shipping and cost and we'll sort something out.

regs,

The ID is 9mm and the OD is 12mm? Wall thickness of 3mm?
It was easy to place and remove the plates from the malt pipe with the tubbing in?
The tubbing wall thickness is quite important in order to fit the plates inside the malt pipe.
I had a silicon tubbing with ID 10mm and OD 14mm that didn't' fit well inside the malt pipe :cry:




My tubing has wall thickness of 1.5 mm. any OD between 9 & 12 should be ok.
Was a snug fit going onto malt pipe but softens slightly with the heat so easy to remove.
I tried a softer silicon tube, but when sliced it had no rigidity to grip the filter plates.

Thanks for the info Tabs. Two questions: Did you connect the two ends together? If so, who did you connect them?

Check out this page at McMaster..

http://www.mcmaster.com/#rubber-u-channels/=x1cabj

Go down toward the bottom and you will see an 8 pc assortment. Look at the end of the box and see the specs for Style 2

I haven't measured the combo thickness of screen and plate.. but, if the thickness of the two is 1/8th inch or less, the wall thickness of this material is only 1/16th inch.. so the combo around the screen diameter would only be 1/8" total.

1/16" is 1.58 mm 1/8" = 3.175mm total thickness for both sides of the filter combo.

If it works for size, a nice thing about this material is it has rounded edges to make sliding in/out easier.

________

Further thinking outside the box might be some large, wide rubber bands. When stretched over the combo, they would fold/wrap around both sides of the plate.. and the thickness of the band would be thinned by stretching.

Didn't see any need to join the ends. Worked great as it was. Only my second brew but much less debris than my first, (which I had to filter prior to bottling).

I was looking at this one:

http://www.mcmaster.com/#4869a76/=x21la9

It's silicone so it's safe at high temperatures also the combined thickness for both sides is only 3/32 or 2.38mm

A while back I tried:

http://www.mcmaster.com/#4869a4/=x21nkv

and it did not work at all. Both too thick to put the plate in and too loose around the edges of the plate and screen.
