pharm-a-line I santoprene peristaltic pump tubing

Superior in Peristalic Pump Applications

Manufactured from virgin, medical grade TPE and homogeneously extruded to precise dimensional tolerances, our Pharm-A-Line I tubing was specifically developed to provide superior performance in peristaltic pump applications. Pharm-A-Line I provides an excellent alternative to silicone tubing when resistance to chemicals (such as acetone or methylene chloride) is a concern. Prior to release, we rigorously test each batch of resin for cytotoxicity and heavy metals.

Ideal for Pharmaceutical, Biological, and Food and Beverage Applications

Pharm-A-Line I meets today’s most stringent cytotoxicity and extractability requirements for critical pharmaceutical process applications. It is recommended for most biological process fl uids. Pharm-A-Line I is also ideal for liquid coupler connections between process tanks and fl uidized bed process equipment. Other applications include sterile solutions, buff er agents, and food and beverage processing.
