Saint-Gobain Tygon S3™E-LFL Long Flexible Life Tubing

Longest flexible life of any clear Tygon tubing

  • Over 1,000 h pump tubing life at 0 psi
  • Over 600 h pump tubing life at 10 psi
  • Broad chemical resistance
  • Extremely low particle spallation
  • Contains no phthalate or BPA

The Only Choice for Phthalate-free Tubing

  • Non-DEHP, bio-based plasticizer is fully biodegradable
  • Based on sustainable resources
  • Safe for the environment; reduced end-user riskThe non-aging and broad chemical resistance properties of Tygon S3™E-LFL enable users to utilize the new tubing for transferring chemicals, cleaning agents and bactericides without danger of corrosion (as with metals) or oxidation (as with rubber). Tygon S3™ E-LFL is safe and nontoxic and can be sterilized through conventional autoclave methods (steam 30 minutes at 15 psi 250°F (121°C), making it an excellent choice for high purity applications. It can be produced in up to a 6" (15.6 cm) inside diameter, which is ideal for bulk transfer applications.

Tygon S3™ E-LFL Tubing Provides Optimal Peristaltic Pump Performance
Crystal-clear Tygon S3™ E-LFL tubing is formulated specifically for use in peristaltic pump applications. The new Tygon S3™ E-LFL non-DEHP tubing has even longer pump life—not only at 0 psi–but also at back pressure of up to 25 psi. The peristaltic pump life performance at different back pressures is shown below. With its superior flex life characteristics, Tygon S3™ E-LFL tubing reduces production downtime due to pump tubing failure. Our tests demonstrated reduced particle spallation, which eliminates the need for frequent downstream filter replacement and diminishes the risk of sensitive-fluid contamination. This is critical in several laboratory applications, such as pharmaceutical, high purity chemicals, cosmetics and food and beverage.
