Superior Performance in Peristaltic Pumps
Designed specifically for use in peristaltic pump applications, Tygon® XL-60 tubing maintains a pump life of over 500 hours. With a durometer hardness of Shore A 60,
it is extremely flexible and exhibits superior flex life, reducing downtime due to pump tubing failure . Tygon® XL-60 tubing can be considered an alternative to silicones and PVC when longer pump tubing life is required.
Excellent Physical Properties
Tygon® XL-60 tubing is translucent in color and has excellent chemical resistance to a wide range of fluids, including acids and bases. It also exhibits excellent resistance to ozone, oxygen and sunlight aging. Tygon® XL-60 tubing remains flexible at -40°F and is temperature resistant up to 250°F.
Tubing materials used for food and beverage transfer are not totally inert; hence there may be physical and chemical interactions with the food product, which play a decisive role in the selection of the tubing material. The nature of these interactions includes permeation of gases and vapors across the tubing, migration of tubing components into the food, and sorption of food components. These interactions can give rise to odors and degradation reactions in both the food and the tubing. Tygon® XL-60 tubing was subjected to a migration study with food simulants and the Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) analysis showed that under normal use it does not impart an unwanted taste or odor to the food or beverage being transferred.
