Pure-Fit® TC

Pure-Fit® TC ultimate tube clamp system is the first in the new generation of clamping systems introduced to the pharmaceutical industry. It features a complete outer body with no sharp edges,, eliminating the potential for snags, scratches or punctures. The unique locking mechanism is fully encapsulated to guard against untimely or unwanted release. The Pure-Fit® TC system has a press down locking system and a side release mechanism, allowing for secure and single-handed operation and installation. This high-tech design allows for complete flow stoppage and can be installed over the tube in the normal fashion or assembled after the tube is already in formation.

Features / Benefits:
• Provides complete fluid stoppage
• No sharp edges or corners, preventing punctures and ruptures
• Internal ratchet mechanism meters fluid flow
• Can be installed on or over tubing or finished assemblies
• Has a high degree of leverage to accommodate varied durometer tubing
• Single-hand installation capability for ease of operation
• Unique tip locking mechanism and side release to prevent unwanted openings
• Availabel in PVDF, polupropylene or polysulphone
• Fully autoclavable and sterilizable
• Custom colors and identification available

Typical Applications:
• Biopharmaceutical manufacturing
• Pharmaceutical processes
• Peristaltic pump sets
• Drug delivery and discovery
