PharMed® BPT Biocompatible Tubing
DUROMETER HARDNESS Shore A, 64
Life Science applications tubing for use with peristaltic pumps
  • Outlasts silicone tubing in peristaltic pumps by up to 30 times
  • Temperature resistant from -60ºF (-51ºC) to 275ºF (135ºC)
  • Low particulate spallation
  • Withstands repeated sterilization
  • Compatible with all commercial cleaners and sanitizers

Transporting biocompatible fluids through a peristaltic pump limits the risk of fluid contact with any portion of the pump itself. PharMed® BPT Biocompatible Tubing has been formulated to withstand the rigors of peristaltic pumping action while providing the biocompatible fluid surface required in sensitive applications. PharMed® BPT Biocompatible Tubing is best for use in peristaltic pumps and cell cultures. As it is less permeable to gases and vapors than silicone tubing, it is ideal for protecting sensitive cell cultures. With its superior flex life characteristics, PharMed® BPT tubing reduces downtime due to pump tubing failure. The excellent wear properties of PharMed® BPT translate to less erosion of interior tubing walls, improving overall efficiency of filtering systems.

Superior to silicone tubing for many applications
PharMed® BPT tubing is less permeable to gases and vapors than silicone tubing and outlasts silicone tubing in peristaltic pumps by up to 30 times. (See Permeability Coefficient Comparison chart and the Comparative Peristaltic Pump Tubing Life chart). PharMed® BPT tubing has very good general chemical resistance and excellent acid, alkali and oxidation resistance. Opaque to visible and UV light, PharMed® BPT tubing helps to protect sensitive fluids. Continuous service temperature range is -60ºF (-51ºC) to 275ºF (135ºC).
