The right material is crucial when building your Masterflex pump system. Consider all aspects of your application: chemical compatibility, operating temperature, pressure, necessary regulatory approvals, gas permeability of the tubing, and cleaning/sterilization requirements. These considerations are among those discussed in the specification sheets for each formulation.
More specific information on chemical compatibility, material life, gas permeability, pressure/vacuum/suction generation, and viscosity handling charactersitics can be found in the Technical Info section.
