Tygon S3™ E-LFL Long Flexible Life Tubing
DUROMETER HARDNESS Shore A, 56 Non-DEHP and Phthalate-Free Tubing
Longest flexible life of any clear Tygon® tubing

  • Over 1,000 h pump tubing life at 0 psi
  • Over 600 h pump tubing life at 10 psi
  • Extremely low particle spallation
  • Contains no BPA or phthalates

The non-aging properties of Tygon S3™ E-LFL enable users to utilize the new tubing for transferring chemicals, cleaning agents and bactericides without danger of corrosion (as with metals) or oxidation (as with rubber). Tygon S3™ E-LFL is safe and non-toxic and can be sterilized through conventional autoclave methods (steam 30 minutes at 15 psi 250ºF (121ºC), making it an excellent choice for high purity applications. It can be produced in up to a 6" (15.6cm) inside diameter, which is ideal for bulk transfer applications.

Tygon S3™ E-LFL Tubing provides optimal peristaltic pump performance
Crystal-clear Tygon S3™ E-LFL tubing is formulated specifically for use in peristaltic pump applications. The new Tygon S3™ E-LFL non-DEHP tubing has even longer pump life – not only at 0 psi – but also at back pressure of up to 25 psi. The peristaltic pump life performance at different back pressures is shown on the next page. With its superior flex life characteristics, Tygon S3™ E-LFL tubing reduces production downtime caused by pump tubing failure. Our tests demonstrated reduced particle spallation, which eliminates the need for frequent downstream filter replacement and diminishes the risk of sensitive-fluid contamination. This is critical in several laboratory applications, such as pharmaceutical, high-purity chemicals, cosmetics and food and beverage.

  • Peristaltic pumps
  • General laboratory liquid transfer
  • Surfactant delivery
  • Shear-sensitive fluid transfer
  • Highly viscous fluid transfer
  • Filtration and fermentation
  • Food and beverage laboratory liquid transfer

Regulatory compliance:
  • USP Class VI
  • ISO 10993
  • NSF-51
  • FDA criteria

Sterilization methods:
  • Autoclavable – Steam 30 minutes at 15 psi at 250ºF (121ºC)
  • Gas – Ethylene Oxide
