Barnant Introduces New Long-Life Peristaltic Pump Elements At Pittcon
Barnant Company, the word's leading manufacturer of peristaltic (tubing) pump technology, introduces Masterflex® Ultra-Pure and Ultra-Resistant Peristaltic Pump Elements. These new composite elements have excellent applications in biotechnology, cell harvesting, ultra-filtration, fermentation, filling and dispensing, semiconductor and other uses where high purity and long tube life are needed.
The composite ultra-resistant tubing material offers contamination-free pumping suited to biotechnology, pharmaceutical and food environments. Since the Masterflex® Engineered Composite Pump Elements are free from plasticizers, acid acceptors and other processing aids found in competitive products, they are the cleanest media-conducting materials available. Leachability tests using ethyl acetate yielded 132 ppm of total extractables, over 100 times less than current fluorelastomer tubing. This tubing has passed both FDA food contact certification and stringent USP Class VI approval for pharmaceutical applications.
The Masterflex® ultra pure composite tube provides long life, operating pressures as high as 60 psi and no spailation, it is USP Class VI approved and FDA Type Il MMF. In applications with back pressure of 60 psi, this tube lasts over 1,000 hours in continuous use at 290 rpm.
