Saint-Gobain Adds High Purity Hose Option to Sani-Tech® Line
BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Jan. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Saint-Gobain has expanded its Sani-Tech® line of fluid transfer products with the introduction of Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP high purity hose. Ultra-HP combines a tough outer jacket and hose comprising multiple layers of Sani-Tech® Ultra platinum-cured silicone and 316L stainless steel helical wire reinforcement with a PharmaFluor® FEP liner. The liner’s smooth inner bore surface provides both optimal flow and ease of cleaning and sanitization.
The PharmaFluor® FEP liner minimizes bonding of biological materials and maintains fluid purity due to low TOCs, extractables and leachables. The liner is fully bonded to the silicone hose utilizing patented bonding technology, which helps ensure a high purity fluid path.
Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP hose is manufactured to tight dimensional tolerances, which simplifies the assembly procedure. The hose’s overall light weight, low force to bend and exceptional flexibility make it very user-friendly. It is suitable for a variety of applications, including bioprocessing, load cells, product transfer and steam-in-place/clean-in-place (SIP/CIP).
Sani-Tech® Ultra-HP hose is constructed from USP Class VI compliant materials and certified to meet USP <88>, USP <87>, EP 3.1.9, ISO 10993, FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 and FDA 21 CFR 177.1550 requirements.
