Quick Tubing Replacement Without Tools

Quick Tube ChangesChanging from one tubing formulation to another takes only seconds and no tools are required. Simply open the hood and place the new tube inside. The pump can be set on its side for these tube changes.

Extend Tubing Life by Applying Synthetic Grease

Tubing life is greatly extended by applying synthetic grease along inside corner of the hood as shown in the diagram on the left. We suggest purchasing a 3-oz tube of food-grade synthetic grease with PTFE from McMaster-Carr Supply Co., part #1378K31. Tubing life can also be extended by sliding the tube about 4" so that the rollers contact a different area of the tubing. PhaMed® and Norprene® tubing materials have a longer tubing life than Silicone.

Tube Cleaning and Sterilization Procedures

For sterile applications, even new tubing must be cleaned and then sterilized before use.
Cleaning
  • Clean with a hot soapy water solution.
  • Use a non-oily soap such as Ivory.
  • Do not use a synthetic detergent or oil-based soap as they may be absorbed by the tubing and may leach out into the fluid being pumped at a later date.
  • Rinse thoroughly with distilled water.

Sterilization by Ethylene Oxide Method

  • Coil loosely in non-linting cloth or sterilizing paper.
  • Follow the sterilization equipment manufacturers directions as to gas type, concentration, times and temperatures.
  • Maintain humidity within the prescribed limits, generally between 30 to 65%.
 
Silicone (Platinum-Cured) Tubing

Sterilization by Standard Gravity Autoclave

  • Coil loosely in non-linting cloth or sterilizing paper and place in a clean open tray for 30 minutes at 121° C (250° F) at 1 kg/cm2 (15 psi).
  • Air dry at maximum of 66° C (150° F) for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
