Tubes have a wide range of applications in the peristaltic pump industry. When the peristaltic pump is working, the liquid is transmitted through tubes such as silicone tubes. The liquid only contacts the inner wall of the tube, which can ensure the high cleanliness of the transmitted liquid.
Classification of peristaltic pump silicone tube
Peristaltic pump silicone tube can be divided into ordinary silicone tube, special silicone tube and platinum silicone tube (Tygon 3350).
Ordinary silicone tube: This is a basic silicone tube, transparent in color, resistant to weak acid and weak alkali, in line with sanitary grade, non-toxic and tasteless, high temperature resistant and aging resistant. Customers can choose this silicone tube under general conveying conditions, with low price and about half of the life expectancy of imported long-life tube.
Special silicone tube: This is a commissioned silicone tube, transparent and slightly white in color, resistant to weak acid and weak alkali, in line with sanitary grade, non-toxic and tasteless, high temperature resistant and aging resistant. This kind of silicone tube is determined according to the specific liquid medium of customers.
Platinum silicone tube:
1.Characteristics: colorless and transparent, hardness of 50A, good air permeability, ultraviolet B level, ozone D level, temperature of -50 to 230 degrees, theoretical life of 100 hours.
2.Applications: Non-corrosive, weak acid and alkaline liquid transmission, food, beverage, cosmetics, biological products, pharmaceutical industry and so on.
3.Certification: In line with ISO 10993 standard biocompatibility proof documents, in line with USP CLASS VI, FDA and NSF51 standards
Note: SPT50 has lower cleanliness than Tygon 3350 and lower price, other characteristics are the same as 3350.
What’s the difference between silicone tubes?
The difference between ordinary silicone tube and special silicone tube is that the former has a slightly stronger smell, but it is easy to process and has high yield, mainly used in mechanical industry. The latter is better, and its application industry is also wide. Platinum-level tubes are odorless, non-toxic and have higher performance than the above two tubes. However, the processing technology is complex and the production requirements are high. It is mainly used in small household appliances, laboratories, pharmaceuticals and other industries with high requirements for tubes.The ordinary silicone tube is slightly more odorous than the other two, but its advantages are convenient processing and high yield, mainly used in the mechanical industry.
The superior silicone tube is better than the former one, and its application industry is also wide.
Platinum-grade tubes are odorless, non-toxic and have higher performance than the above two kinds of tubes, but the processing technology is complex and the production requirements are high, mainly used in small household appliances, laboratories, pharmaceuticals and other industries with higher requirements for tubes.
