The role of tubing connectors in fluid handling and processing operations

Tubing connectors play a crucial role in pharma fluid processing by facilitating the reliable safe and secure connection of various components within a fluid processing system. Here are their key critical functions:

  • Fluid Transfer: Enables reliable safe, contamination-free movement of drugs, solvents, buffers, and solutions.
  • Compatibility and Versatility: Connects various tubing types, accommodating diverse process needs.
  • Aseptic Processing: Maintains fluid path sterility, crucial for preventing contamination.
  • Modularity and Flexibility: Offers a customizable, adaptable system for changing requirements.

  • Sealing and Leakage Prevention: Ensures secure, leak-free connections, preventing fluid loss or contamination.
  • Maintenance Accessibility: Allows quick, hassle-free component disconnection for cleaning or replacement.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Manufactured to meet industry standards, ensuring safety and quality in pharmaceutical applications.
  • Dead Space Reduction: Well-designed connectors minimize space, enhancing dosing accuracy and reducing waste.

USP Class VI – Reliably Safe Tubing Connectors

In the field of medical technology and pharmaceuticals plastics are categorized into six biocompatibility classes in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP), the American pharmacopoeia. In order to assign polymeric materials to one of these classes, they undergo various tests that determine their biological reactivity in vivo, meaning within a living organism.

Among these classes, USP Class VI is the strictest and is considered equivalent to a pharmaceutical approval for polymeric materials.

Engineering Excellence: Robust Tubing Connectors for Critical Fluid Operations Applications

The design of our connectors, including material type and thickness, ensures they can withstand significant mechanical strain without fracturing. All Luer connections are integrally molded, not simply glued, resulting in smooth transitions and enhanced mechanical characteristics of the connectors.

The mold parting lines are positioned beyond the initial hose connection ring, thereby optimizing tightness and, consequently, ensuring heightened safety during application. RAUMEDIC's connectors, constructed from polycarbonate, have undergone rigorous testing in accordance with USP Class VI standards.
