Southampton, PA, June 16, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- AdvantaPure has introduced a white paper that compares the uncertainty of tube sets made with barbed fittings to assemblies manufactured using leak-proof molded connections. Titled "How Molded Manifold Assemblies Prevent Leaks and Costly Consequences," the report describes how leak risks increase with each additional barbed fitting connection in an assembly and offers a solution to reduce that risk.
Moving fluid from point A to point B typically involves a number of tubing-to-fitting connections, along with components such as filters, sampling bags and bottles, all of which require cable ties for secure attachment. When connections leak, the result can involve contamination, production delays and lost income – even into the range of millions of dollars. By incorporating molded tubing connections, the risk of leaks is greatly reduced and the success rate of maintaining sterile pharma and biopharma products is increased.
The white paper explains the challenges involving a sterile fluid flow system, such as flow disruptions, meeting strict governing-association requirements, minimizing cleaning and validation requirements, and maintaining operator safety. It examines how each individual barbed connection in a tube set puts the entire fluid transfer process at risk and how much that risk rises based on the total number of connections in an assembly.
Solutions to the problem are also presented in the paper and include suggestions to replace traditional barbed fittings and cable ties with leak-proof molded connections. These types of connections offer smooth, crevice-free inner surfaces and eliminate cable ties, which can puncture components like bags.
"How Molded Manifold Assemblies Prevent Leaks and Costly Consequences" includes photographs and illustrations for easy visual explanations of the situations described. Other white papers focusing on Single-Use tubing, closures and stopper systems, and clean room fluid transfer options are also available.
