Crush and Kink Resistant Silicone Hose Now Available from AdvantaPure(R); Platinum Cured for Critical Applications Such as Biopharmaceutical
Southampton, PA, January 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Reinforced silicone hose from AdvantaPure allows high purity fluid flow without the worry of kinking or crushing. Called APSW, the hose is made from a liner of low-volatile grade, platinum-cured silicone that is fabric wrapped and wire reinforced for durability in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, biomedical, and food applications.
A wrapped hose offers advantages over unreinforced tubing and other types of reinforced hose. The polyester mesh fabric wrapping adds significant strength to the silicone material, and the spiraled 316 stainless steel reinforcing wire enables the finished hose to resist crushing, kinking, and ultimately flow restriction. An outer layer of silicone is added and the hose is cured, resulting in a product that works equally well in pressure or full vacuum (29.9 in. Hg) applications.
The all-silicone liner of APSW is certified free of animal-derived ingredients. The silicone is also certified by the National Sanitation Foundation for use with food equipment materials (NSF-51).
APSW has undergone extensive physical, chemical, and biological testing and meets many USP standards including Class VI. FDA, European Pharmacopoeia, ISO 10993, and 3-A standards are also met. Additionally, the contact surface liner material has an extensive Extractables test portfolio. APSW hose is well suited for applications such as ultrapure water transfer, flexible high purity processing junctions, washdown stations, and other suction and discharge uses.
Two styles are available: smooth O.D. (outer diameter) and, for an improved range of flexibility, convoluted O.D. Both are made in the U.S. and are well stocked for immediate availability. Smooth O.D. hose is offered in eight sizes from 1/2” through 4” I.D.; the convoluted style is available in five sizes from 1/2" to 2” I.D. APSW is sterilizable by autoclave, SIP, CIP, or gamma irradiation.
A complete validation package is available upon request.
