BEAVERTON, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Saint-Gobain has added 42 new hose-barb connectors to its Pure-Fit® SIB® product line. The new fittings offer our customers greater versatility for customizable, single-use systems.
Pure-Fit SIB is a smooth inner bore (SIB) hose-barb connector that provides a seamless transition between tubing and fittings throughout the fluid path. Pure-Fit SIB eliminates entrapment and leak points that can occur with traditional assembly systems. The unique internal design eliminates voids or dead space that can lead to turbulence or stagnation of fluid flow, creating the potential for bacterial growth.
Available in both animal-free polypropylene (PP) and polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) materials, Pure-Fit SIB is compatible with Saint-Gobain’s Sani-Tech®, C-Flex® and PharMed® flexible tubing, as well as Pure-Fit and BarbLock® retainers that provide complete 360° compression around the barb for a leak-free connection.
The Pure-Fit SIB product line is ideal for biopharmaceutical processing that may include media hydration, filtration, cell culture/harvest, product sampling and downstream activities.
