Having trouble with the pump life of your silicone tubing?

Masterflex Peristaltic Pump

While all silicone tubing looks very similar from a few feet away, there are inherent differences separating the field.  A quick glance at market standard silicones indicates pump life ranging from 25 hours to over 150 hours under normal peristaltic pumping conditions.  Clearly, there is a range and fit to certain silicone tubes on a per application basis.  Beyond that, other hot topics include: extractables (organic and inorganic), validation documentation, lot traceability, manufacturing conditions and much more.

So which is right for you?
