Peristaltic Pump - Chem-Sure® W.L.Gore & Associates Peristaltic Pump Tubing
Longest Lasting Tubing
Under transfer conditions, CHEM-SURE® W.L.Gore & Associates Peristaltic Pump Tubes operate over 50 times longer than any other fluoroelastomer tubing. They last for thousands of hours pumping aggressive chemicals that often attack other tubing materials. This level of durability greatly reduces the risk of unexpected tube rupture, which means fewer shutdowns to replace tubing plus significant increases in productivity.
Ideal tubing for aggressive chemicals
With excellent chemical resistance, CHEM-SURE® W.L.Gore & Associates pump tubes handle nearly all aggressive chemicals, including organic solvents such as methyl ethyl ketone, toluene, and acetone. For years, users have known that peristaltic pumps provide a unique combination of superior metering accuracy and low maintenance. Users can now realize these benefits in solvent-based processing applications.
The structure of CHEM-SURE® W.L.Gore & Associates peristaltic pump tube provides superior burst resistance compared to conventional unreinforced extruded tubing. There is less worry about the environmental and safety risk of unexpected tube rupture in high-pressure filtration, transfer, and chemical addition operations in the pharmaceutical and specialty chemical industries. Unique Structure
The unique composite structure of CHEM-SURE® W.L.Gore & Associates Peristaltic Pump Tubes provide superior burst resistance compared to conventional unreinforced extruded tubing. There's less worry about the environmental and safety risk of unexpected tube rupture in high pressure filtration, transfer, and chemical addition operations. That's why these new tubes are an excellent choice for very demanding applications in the pharmaceutical and specialty chemical industries.
Lowest Solvent Swell
Manufacturers recommend tubes that have less than 10% volume swell for acceptable operation in peristaltic pumps in chemical service. While other fluoroelastomer tubing will swell over 300% when subjected to solvents such as acetone, methyl ethyl ketone and tetrahydrofuran, ASTM D471-95 immersion tests show that CHEM-SURE® W.L.Gore & Associates tubes experience negligible swelling in a wide range of solvents.
