Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) (England, UK) announced the launch of the Maxthane pump tubing elements and confirmation of FDA and EC1935/2004 certification on Qdos pumps.
Designed to suit tasks that include the accurate and reliable dosing of flavors, colors and additives, Maxthane provides long service life and food-grade compliance in accordance with FDA and EU regulations.
Maxthane is fully compatible with all types of food oils and most CIP (clean-in-place) chemicals and are manufactured from fully recyclable thermoplastic polyurethane. The tubing’s high peristaltic performance from a thinner wall and recyclable constitution reduces the product's environmental impact.
Maxthane is designed for use with the Watson-Marlow 530 Series cased peristaltic pumps fitted with a 520 RET pumphead, which provides high-accuracy and rapid, simple maintenance. Quick-change LoadSure (three sizes) options ensure easy changeover. During maintenance routines, the operator replaces the element in the pumphead.
Maxthane supports flow rates up to 3.5 L/m and pressure up to 7 bar to deliver dosing and metering accuracy for a wide range of applications. Users will experience extended service life, chemical compatibility, low spallation and abrasion and UV resistance.
