Bioprocessing Flow Tubing | Case Study | Trelleborg

Bioprocessing Flow Tubing

Customer: Bioprocessing Equipment Manufacturer
Application: Bioprocessing Flow Tubing

Issues:

  • Desired flow rates not being achieved
  • Tubing collapsing due to large suction pressure from rotary lobe style pump

Solution

  • Tubing wall was increased to 0.48 mm / .188 inch from 0.32 mm / .125 inch while maintaining the same inner diameter.

The customer required a high flow rate discharge due a large volume bottom outlet disposable biobag. This involved switching from a peristaltic pump to a rotary lobe style pump. Thicker wall tubing prevented the tubing from collapsing and the specified flow rates are being met.
