AdvantaPure has announced that it is now a GORE STA-PURE Pump Tubing systems integrator for biopharm and pharmaceutical applications. As experts in molded connections, AdvantaPure can now overmold GORE STA-PURE Pump Tubing into any manifold tubing assembly as its pump element.
GORE STA-PURE Pump Tubing, Series PCS, is specially formulated for extended performance in peristaltic pumps. It's manufactured with a patented composite of platinum-cured silicone rubber and ePTFE for a fluid transfer product that offers durability, reliability and consistent performance.
AdvantaPure connects GORE STA-PURE Pump Tubing to any of its AdvantaSil platinum-cured silicone tubing using overmolding technology. GORE STA-PURE Pump Tubing is positioned in the assembly as the long-lasting pump element, and the overmolding process results in a smooth contact surface for optimal fluid flow. Connections may also be made using barbed fittings and clamps, and coming soon, with crimped-on stainless steel Tri-Clamp fittings.
Key tubing features include:
- Minimises the risk of tubing rupture in pumps
- Withstands operating pressures up to 100 psig – ideal for higher pressure uses
- Lasts up to 70 times longer in pumps than extruded silicone tubing, enabling long production cycles
- Provides process stability and consistent flow rates – outperforms silicone in flow-rate decay
- Lower spallation as compared to extruded silicone tubing
- Supports sterile fluid processing
- Fluid contact surface: platinum-cured silicone
- Manufactured and packaged in an ISO Class 7 clean room
- Sterilisable by CIP/SIP and autoclave
GORE STA-PURE Pump Tubing is made in the US and comes in a range of sizes and lengths. A validation guide and extractables test packages are available upon request.
