The difference between medical silicone hose and pharmaceutical silicone hose
Pharmaceutical silicone hoses and medical silicone hoses are sanitary hoses, which must meet hygienic standards, contain no harmful substances such as plasticizers, and will not affect the transport medium. The transparent hose can clearly see the flow of the medium, is chemically inert, and does not have a chemical reaction with the conveying medium; the sanitary silicone hose has good characteristics of high temperature and low temperature resistance, and is usually used as a connection hose for some medical equipment or It is used as a conveying hose for pharmaceutical liquids, powders and chemical reagents, as well as vacuum weighing, high-end laboratories, human surgery and other industries.
There are many differences between pharmaceutical silicone hoses and medical silicone hoses in terms of quality and grade. These differences are mainly reflected in the different requirements of the hose and the use environment. Medical silicone hoses are mainly used for connection between medical equipment, or for direct contact with the human body, mainly using small-diameter all-plastic transparent silicone hoses or single-layer braided silicone hoses. These hoses need to meet medical grade requirements. Do not contain harmful substances or react with the human body.
Pharmaceutical grade silicone hoses are mainly used for supporting large-scale pharmaceutical equipment. They are used to transport organic solvents, strong acids and bases, or extract liquid medicines. The hoses need to meet hygienic standards and will not affect or react to the transport medium. It is required that the hose has a certain resistance to high temperature, high pressure or acid and alkali. Silicone steel hoses, four-layer braided silicone tubes, and other large-diameter silicone tubes are used in the pharmaceutical industry.
