Tygon Tubing from PTFX Puresil Techniflex


Tygon tubing is a Thermoplastic Elastomer Tubing that is widely used in the Pharmaceuitcals, Life Sciences, Biotechnology and Medical industry sectors.
It works well with peristaltic pumps and many other critical process transfer or sampling applications.
PTFX Flexible TPE tubing is less permeable to gases and vapours when compared to silicone rubber tubing and it is also ideal for protecting sensitive cell cultures, fermentation, synthesis, separation, purification, process monitoring and control systems.
TPE tubing has been formulated to cope with peristaltic pumping action while providing the bio-compatible fluid contact surface needed with sensitive media applications.

With it't extended pump life characteristics, TPE tubing can simplify your manufacturing processes by minimising production downtime - which is often caused by pump tubing failure.
The excellent wear properties of TPE tubing can also help to reduced erosion of the inner liner of the tubing - improving the overall efficiency of filtering systems.
