Saint-Gobain Introduces Next Generation Silicone Tubing: New Sani-Tech® Ultra delivers improved performance
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics continues its long tradition of innovation in ultra-pure tubing technology with new Sani-Tech® Ultra.This platinum-cured silicone tubing meets the stringent requirements of demanding biopharmaceutical process applications while delivering improved performance in a number of areas.
Fluid integrity is of crucial importance in many biopharmaceutical operations.Sani-Tech® Ultra formulations are manufactured and packaged in a certified clean room from the finest grade of silicone materials to ensure that the highest sanitary standards are met.Ultra-low TOCs virtually eliminate the potential for contamination by extractables during use, and Sani-Tech® Ultra imparts no taste or odors to materials that pass through the tubing.
Sani-Tech® Ultra products are fully characterized, validated and tested to a variety of specifications, including USP Class VI, ISO 10993 and EP 3.1.9.Detailed testing protocols are available upon request.
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics silicone tubing is known for its excellent peristaltic pump tubing life, and Sani-Tech® Ultra is no exception.In a controlled test of Sani-Tech® Ultra and three competitors, Ultra lasted from 20% longer to twice as long as other tubing products.
Other features that distinguish Sani-Tech® Ultra products include excellent flexibility, laser etching for lot traceability and non-yellowing properties.It is fully autoclavable and sterilizable, and accommodates a wide range of temperatures —
-80ºF to 500ºF (-62ºC to 260ºC).
Sani-Tech® Ultra is available in 50 and 65 durometers and 91 different ID/OD combinations.Available options include bulk spool packaging and pre-delivery gamma irradiation.Custom sizes, lengths, durometers and laylines are also offered.
Sani-Tech® Ultra builds on Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics long history in extrusion, custom molding and materials development for the biopharmaceutical industry.Tygon®, C-Flex® and Pure-Fit are just a few of the many well-known brands in the company s portfolio.
