The inner surface of Tygon® SPT-3350 silicone tubing has been designed to reduce the risk of particle entrapment and microscopic build-up during fluid transfer. In-house analysis of the inner surface of Tygon® SPT-3350 silicone tubing compared to other silicone tubing shows that it is up to three times smoother.
A smoother fluid path also helps to facilitate complete sanitation of a fluid transfer system. Even in repeat use applications, Tygon® SPT-3350 silicone tubing may prevent residue build-up, aiding in complete cleaning and sterilization. Additionally, the smooth inner surface of the Tygon® SPT-3350 silicone tubing improves fluid flow characteristics by reducing surface area.
