Maintains Fluid Integrity During Fluid Transport
Transporting biocompatible fluids through a peristaltic pump limits the risk of fluid contact with any portion of the pump itself. PharMed® BPT tubing has been formulated to withstand the rigors of peristaltic pumping action while providing the biocompatible
fluid surface required in sensitive applications. With its superior flex life characteristics, PharMed® BPT tubing simplifies manufacturing processes by reducing production downtime due to pump tubing failure (see comparative Peristaltic Pump Tubing Life chart on back of page). The excellent wear properties of PharMed® BPT tubing also can lead to reduced erosion of the tubing interior walls, improving the overall efficiency of filtering systems.
Simplifies Cleaning and Sterilization
PharMed® BPT tubing is ideal for use in clean-in-place and steam-in-place cleaning and sterilization systems. It is compatible with virtually all commercial cleaners and sanitizers and can be repeatedly autoclaved for up to five cycle times, without affecting overall service life. PharMed® BPT tubing also can be exposed to Cobalt 60 gamma radiation levels of up to 5 MRads with minimal effect on physical properties.
Superior to Silicone Tubing for Many Applications
PharMed® BPT tubing is less permeable to gases and vapors than silicone tubing (see Permeability Coefficient Comparison chart on back of page). It is ideal for protecting sensitive cell culture, fermentation, synthesis, separation, purification, and process
monitoring and control systems. PharMed® BPT tubing has very good general chemical resistance and excellent acid, alkali and oxidation resistance. Opaque to visible and UV light, PharMed® BPT tubing will help to protect sensitive fluids. Continuous service temperature range is –60°F (-51°C) to 275°F (135°C).
