The new ElaSil range of silicone hoses (photo) is suitable for high-media-purity requirements and is easy to clean. Typical applications include ultrafiltration, fermentation, ultrapure water production, WFI (water for injection) and use as a transfer hose. ElaSil conforms to FDA and USP Class VI and meets the 3-A Sanitary Standard. The homogeneous hose construction consists of a smooth lining and cover of platinum-cured, translucent, phthalate-free silicone and exhibits a combination of high flexibility and kink resistance throughout the temperature range from –60 to 200°C. Hose sizes of DN 13 to 102 mm are available, along with a large range of commonly used hose fittings. — Elaflex-Gummi Ehlers GmbH, Hamburg, Germany
