AdvantaPure, a manufacturer of high purity tubing, now offers its APSPG silicone pump tubing in a new size to help meet customer demand. The tubing, which is USP Class VI approved, is stocked in .313” I.D. x .500” O.D. as well as ten other sizes. APSPG is specially formulated to withstand the rigors of peristaltic pump operations and offers other benefits such as no animal-derived ingredients, resistance to bacteria build-up, translucency, and documented lot traceability and quality control.

Southampton, PA, December 19, 2013 --( 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” I.D. x .500” 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. This assures users of the product’s purity for fluid transfer in critical applications. 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:

• A wide operating temperature range of ‑100°F (‑73.3°C) to 400°F (204.4°C)
• Extreme flexibility and resilience; hardness value of 50 Shore A
• The ability to be sterilized with either gamma irradiation or autoclaving
• Translucency for visual contact with the flow
• No taste or odor transfer to fluids
• Documented lot traceability with identification on bags
• Documented quality control

With the addition of the .313” I.D. size, a total of eleven sizes from .031” through .500” I.D. are now stocked. 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.
