GORE STA-PURE PCS tubing

Overview

GORE STA-PURE PCS PTFE reinforced silicone tubing

STA-PURE PCS pump tubing provides long term performance with repeatable accuracy, vital in pharmaceuticals and other high technology industries.

STA-PURE PCS has a unique composite construction of silicone in a PTFE lattice, giving it superior burst resistance up to 100 psi and 18 times longer life than silicone tubing. It produces virtually no spallation, is USP Class VI approved and is non-toxic, making it ideal for a wide range of biopharmaceutical applications.

Widely used for ultra-pure applications such as tangential flow filtration, ultra-filtration, live cell transfer, fermentation and bioreactor feed. Also used for aqueous tablet coating.
