Pure Fit SC

 

Pure-Fit® SC is an innovative new connective technology that makes it possible to create true sterile connections anywhere — even outside the clean room environment. It incorporates exclusive Pure-Fit® SIB® technology, which provides a seamless transition of tubings and fittings in order to maintain complete fluid integrity. The silicone valve design at the heart of Pure-Fit® SC allows for easy assembly and leaves no gaps or residue, eliminating problems associated with other systems. The locking mechanism virtually eliminates the possibility of operator error, and also simplifies validation.

Features and Benefits:
  • Silicone valve design is easy to assemble - leaves no gaps or residue, eliminating problems associated with other systems.
  • Use of Pure-Fit® SIB® patented technology on barb connections ensures a completely smooth inner bore flow path.
  • Available in three common sizes (1/4", 3/8", 1/2") that are fully interchangeable for step-down requirements
  • All components made of fully characterized, animal-free materials.
  • Triple-redundant locking mechanism simplifies validation, reducing chances of operator error.
  • Easy-to-see visual indicators confirm proper engagement.
  • Can be sterilized via gamma irradiation or autoclaving.
Typical Applications:
  • Biopharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Pharmaceutical processes
  • Assemblies and tubing sets
  • Sterile liquid transfer
  • Transfer of sensitive biologicals
