Verderflex produces a range of standard tubing to meet the requirements of the wide and varied applications of its tube pumps. For safety reasons, it is not recommended to pump liquids greater than 85°C (185°F).
Please note that not all tubes are suitable for use in a peristaltic pump. The following criteria are important when selecting a tube:
- Chemical resistance
- Food grade quality
- Tube life
- Physical compatibility
Looking for Verderflex pumps? Please refer to Verderflex Peristaltic Cased Tube Pumps and Verderflex Peristaltic OEM Pumps.
Verderprene – General Purpose Tubing
The standard choice for use in peristaltic tube pumps. This white-colored tube has:
- Excellent mechanical strength
- Wide chemical resistance, excellent strength against oxidising agents (ozone, peroxides and hypochlorides)
- Temperature range: +10° to +85°C
- Food grade meets FDA criteria
- Can be autoclaved
- Compatible with most CIP solutions and SIP
Silicone – High Sterility Tubing
A translucent medical/food grade tubing which is odourless, non-toxic and has FDA and USP Class VI approvals. It is:
- Autoclavable, and used in many applications
- Temperature range: -20° to +80°C
- Meets EC1935 and USP Class VI
- Platinum cured for reduced residual levels of siloxanes and other volatiles
- Reduced spallation than Verderprene
Tygon – Chemical Fluids Tubing
Specifically designed to handle many fuels and industrial lubricants, this tubing resists the swelling and hardening caused by the chemical attack due to hydrocarbon based fluids. These properties significantly reduce the risk of failure due to cracking and leakage.
- Temperature range: 0° to +50°C
- White color for positive identification
- Suitable for many fuels, heating oils, glycol, coolants and cutting fluids
Viton – Aggressive Chemical Tubing
Strong, resilient and flexible tube which provides excellent resistance to corrosive acids, alkalis and some solvents.
- Temperature range: 0° to +85°C
- Resists ozone, sunlight and weathering
- Opaque black color helps protect light sensitive fluids
