DuoTight Tubing Cutter

KegLand EVABarrier tubing is made with an EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) outer wall and also an inner proprietary polymer barrier. This tubing is BPA free and odorless, and is meant to be used with the KegLand DuoTight line of push in fittings. 

The outer barrier is extruded to precise tolerances, and seals well when used with various John Guest, DuoTight or other push in fittings. The outer barrier gives the tubing excellent kink resistance so the line is able to bend around a tight radius without kinking. The inner barrier is made from a proprietary polymer that has excellent gas barrier, protecting your beer from oxidation. The EVABarrier inner lining is so smooth that it harder for bacteria and beer film to build up on the inner walls. So your beer will stay fresher for longer and not loose carbonation like non barrier tubing, and the tubing is less likely to harbor bacteria.

5/32" inner diameter, 5/16" outer diameter. 5/32" is provides high restriction in beer lines that are 6' long or shorter, and helps control foaming. Sold in rolls of 39 feet (12 meters). Rated to withstand 100 PSI.

Important:  This tubing is designed to be used with DuoTight Connectors (see at right).  With a little effort, you can get it to fit over 3/16" hose barbs, although not 1/4" hose barbs. To do this, soak the end of the tubing in boiling water for 20 seconds, and then press it on the barb when it is soft. To heat water, put a coffee cup full of water in a microwave for 6 minutes.

This tubing has approximately 2.8 pounds of resistance per foot. What does this mean? It means if you have a 4' beer line of this tubing, you have a total of 11.2 pounds of resistance in the line. Generally, this means setting your PSI on your regulator to the same 11 PSI figure will result in good beer flow, although setting it lower (say 8 PSI or so) in some instances (if the keg is used slowly over a long time) might be preferable to avoid adding carbonation to beer sitting in a keg.

Very Happy!!!

Built a new kegerator and went with all duotight fittings. I started with close to 6' for my beer lines, since then I have cut it to about 4.5'. Honestly I think that 4' would work out perfect. I have no issues with foaming so far. I have a Rhubarb ale at 12 PSI (39 degree) and it forms a good head and and takes about 10 seconds to pour a pint. I also have a berry cider at 20 PSI and have no issues with the pour of that either.

Great Beer Line Tubing

Review by Mike on 10/21/2019

Reasonably flexible with no plastic taste. I've only been using this for a few weeks, but so far, so good. The 4mm (5/32") size allows shorter line lengths than the 3/16 PVC tubing I was using. Connecting the tubing with DuoTight fittings is quick and easy.

Easy to use and great results

Review by Jake on 4/11/2020

I purchased this to replace the 11 ft lines of standard beer line I had been using. I am so happy with it I won't ever be switching back. The duotight fittings are simple to use and I have had no issues with them to date. Highly recommend making the switch to this product.

Q: Can this be used for both gas & liquid connections? Or should I use item # Z92 I want to use a line with the most O2 barrier protection as possible. So thinking this one would have a thicker barrier. Just not sure if its designed for the gas side

A: It can be used for either side, and will flow plenty of gas for a typical home draft system.

Q: Can this be used for gas as well? I like the higher restriction for shorter beer lines and would like to just use one line size for both beer and gas runs if possible.

A: Yes, although the interior diameter is too small to fit 1/4" hose barbs common to gas connectors. It will fit Duotight connectors.
