For convenience, our tubing is categorized into three specific classes based upon wall thickness:
PERFORMANCE:An economical choice for dosing low viscosity fluids, applications using continuous tubing or those requiring more frequent tube changes for sanitary reasons. Wall thickness is based upon the 1/16" (1.6mm) industry standard for peristaltic pumps.
PREMIUM – Designed with a thicker wall than Performance Tubing, this variety is an excellent choice for our high flow rate pumps, applications involving pressure, suction lift and viscous fluids. It also has an expected life up to a 30% longer than Performance Tubing.
ULTRA – Designed for even longer life in high-speed applications and for pumps utilizing large bore tubing.
Note: Our pump heads are specifically configured to utilize tubing in one of the above classes. Use of the incorrect class could potentially damage the pump and void the warranty.Please refer to the pump head model number or the tubing class listed on the unit's product page prior to making your selection.
