Southampton, PA, United States, 2007/06/26 - A new silicon tubing formulation has been developed by AdvantaPure to meet the demands of peristaltic pumps. The material meets Class VI and FDA standards and is well suited for pharmaceutical, biotech, lab, and R&D applications.
AdvantaPure® announces a new silicone tubing, designated APSPG, designed for the unique demands of peristaltic pumps. APSPG is made to withstand repeated compression and release for consistent, dependable performance and to far outlast standard silicone tubing. It is ideally suited for pharmaceutical, biomedical, biotech, chemical, laboratory, and R&D applications.
APSPG is specially formulated for long life in pumps and is extremely flexible and resilient. It offers smooth surfaces for uniform fluid flow, resistance to bacteria build-up, and consistent pump performance. It’s translucent for visual contact with the flow and will not impart any taste or odor to critical streams.
Manufactured in a certified Class 1000 HEPA-filtered clean room, APSPG is made from low-volatile-grade, platinum-cured silicone that meets USP Class VI and FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 standards. The tubing handles temperatures as high as 400°F (204.4°C) and is sterilizable/autoclavable.
APSPG is stocked in ten sizes for immediate delivery. It’s sealed in polybags at manufacture, and all finished product is white room stored to maintain cleanliness. All APSPG tubing is documented lot traceable with identification on the bags. .031” and .063” I.D. sizes are manufactured in 25-foot lengths. Larger sizes, up to 1/2” I.D., are stocked in 50-foot lengths. Custom sizes, lengths, and packaging are available.
