Tygon® A-60-C

Cleaning Chemical Dispensing Tubing

Tygon® A-60-C tubing from Saint-Gobain is formulated to withstand extreme temperatures from -75° F to 275° F (-59° C to 135° C) and will not crack or deteriorate when used in demanding cleaning chemical dispensing applications. Extremely flexible, it resists kinks and retains its shape while installing quickly and easily. Its excellent flexural fatigue resistance makes it the absolute best choice for use in peristaltic pumps often found in dispensing equipment.

Tygon® A-60-C tubing simplifies cleaning and sterilization and is ideal for use in clean-in-place and steam-in-place cleaning and sterilization systems. It is compatible with virtually all commercial cleaners and sanitizers and can be repeatedly autoclaved for up to five cycle times without affecting its overall service life.
