Natvar's new, tight tolerance, silicone tubing line
For peristaltic pumps, tubing size and tolerance is critical. The wall thickness of the tube must precisely match the gap between the pump roller and housing. Slight differences or irregularities in wall thickness can significantly reduce the life of a pump. Tekni-Plex’s silicone tubing offers tolerances as low as +/- 0.03 mm (0.001 inches).
