Tubing

Tubing

When it comes to peristaltic tubing, the selection of the correct tube material is essential to enable your liquid to be transferred and to ensure maximum durability of the tubing.

In order to cover many different applications, a large selection of tube materials and sizes is available including custom-made tubing.

As far as high pressure hose pumps and industrial peristaltic pumps are concerned, we can offer you fabric-reinforced tubing made of NR, NBR, Hypalon and EPDM, for instance.

All other peristaltic pumps can also be used with the following tube materials:

Lagoprene® Tubing for Peristaltic Pumps

Lagoprene® Tubing for Peristaltic Pumps

Lagoprene® tubing is made of a special thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) which is exceptionally well suited for peristaltic pumping applications.

A special manufacturing process and a 69-shore hardness ensure that unlike competitive products Lagoprene® tubing does not lose any of its recovery properties after a few hours of operation. Therefore there is no deviation from the pump’s performance within the first few hours. Lagoprene® has a beige colour and is ideal for the transference of aqueous solutions, mild acids and bases as well as alcohols.


In order to eliminate any ambiguities regarding the relevant tube resistance it is recommended to carry out a 48-hour resistance test.

Povinal™ Tubing for Peristaltic Pumps

Povinal™ Tubing for Peristaltic Pumps

Excellent for aliphatic, aromatic and chlorinated solvents.

Povinal is a polyvinyl alcohol based tubing, ideal for pressures to 20 psi and temperatures of 15º to 125ºF (-9.4 º to 51 º C). It has the flexibility and strength for industrial settings where the handling of chemicals is a problem.

Povinal tubing has outstanding suitability for industrial applications. This can be attributed to the smooth inner wall which resists the formation of deposits, thus facilitating a free flow of liquid. Povinal is not suited for water or media containing large concentrations of water.

In order to eliminate any ambiguities regarding the relevant tube resistance it is recommended to carry out a 48-hour resistance test.
