Masterflex Connection Newsletter Vol.3-2 - Pharmed Tubing
PharMed tubing outlasts silicone tubing in peristaltic pumps by up to 30 times (up to 10,000 hours), simplifying your processes by reducing production downtime due to pump tubing failure. The excellent wear properties can reduce erosion of the tubing interior walls, improving overall efficiency.PharMed is ideal for protecting sensitive cell culture, fermentation, synthesis, separation, purification, and process monitoring and control systems.PharMed tubing meets USP Class VI, FDA and NSF criteria. It has a good general chemical resistance and excellent acid, alkali and oxidation resistance. Opaque to visible and UV light, it helps protect sensitive fluids. Continuous service temperature range is -60°F (-51°C) to 270°F (135°C).For your convenience, we offer PharMed on spools up to 500 feet and in bulk packs with up to 20 bags of 25-ft tubing.
