Masterflex pump tubing, 9 key factors when choosing


Masterflex® peristaltic pump tubing is precision extruded to meet specific tolerances and engineered to comply with various standards and classifications. To select from our many formulations of tubing, consider the tubing life-span as well as:Masterflex-tubing

  1. Fluid compatibility
  2. Fluid temperature
  3. System pressure
  4. Motor RPM
  5. Clarity of tubing
  6. Duty cycle
  7. Maintenance periods
  8. Tubing purity
  9. Viscosity

 Once you’ve selected tubing:

  1. Test it in your application.
  2. Monitor tubing life in duty cycle; look out for signs of tubing fatigue i.e. small pinhole leaks, abrasion, etc..
  3. Set up a maintenance schedule to anticipate any tubing failure.

Monitor the time that your tubing is in the pump. Advance it 20 to 30 centimetres on a daily, weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis, depending on your experience with your maintenance schedule.
