Note: this component is being discontinued and will be replaced with a new formulation in 2021. Clear, flexible and lightweight PVC tubing is suitable for low-pressure industrial applications conveying liquids, gases and some solids. Although PVC tubing is light and has a high bend radius, it is also strong and generally unaffected by both reducing and oxidizing agents. It can be used with diluted alkalies and acids without any adverse effects on the tubing. PVC tubing's low extractables prevent it from transferring taste or odor. Because it is clear, this tubing is easily inspected, and its "mirror-smooth" bore surface provides efficient flow characteristics.
Markets & Applications ▼
There are a variety of applications for PVC tubing across different industries including the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, chemical, instrumentation and medical fields. It has functions in material handling, in refrigeration, as a light vacuum, in distilled water transfer and much more. However, this particular tubing is not recommended for peristaltic pump use, but in other applications, it can be a suitable substitute for Tygon R-3603, which has been replaced by Saint-Gobain's new formulation Tygon E-3606. Component Supply seeks to assist researchers and product designers in determining the best products for their specific applications. While we do provide some information regarding applications for our PVC tubing, the options are too numerous for a comprehensive review. Therefore, if you do not see a description for an application that suits your needs, please contact one of our representatives who can provide further information about this product and others that might aid your project.
