AdvantaPure manufactures silicone pump tubing for pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and laboratory uses. Known as APSPG, the tubing is specially formulated to withstand the repeated compression and release actions of peristaltic pumps and offers consistent, dependable performance beyond that of standard silicone tubing. AdvantaPure recently added another size, namely .313-inch I.D. x .500-inch O.D. to its stock offering.
The USP (United States Pharmacopoeia) Class VI endorsement applies to the finished tubing and not to its ingredients only. The low-volatile-grade silicone material is platinum cured, certified free of animal-derived ingredients and meets FDA 21 CFR 177.2600. APSPG is manufactured and packaged in Class 7 (Class 10,000) ISO-certified clean rooms.
APSPG provides smooth surfaces for uniform fluid flow and resistance to bacteria build-up. Additionally, it offers an operating temperature range of ‑100°F (‑73.3°C) to 400°F (204.4°C), a hardness value of 50 Shore A, translucency for visual contact with the flow and documented quality control.
The tubing is sealed in polybags at manufacture and stored in a particulate-controlled warehouse to maintain cleanliness. Custom sizes, lengths, and packaging including double bagging are available.
