PureFit® Tube Clamp Systems
Biopharmaceutical Products The Ultimate Tube Clamp System

Pure-Fit® TC two piece design allows connection before or after the tubing assembly is completed and the integral bore hole allows total lock out.

Pure-Fit ® TC

The Pure-Fit® TC ultimate tube clamp system is a new generation of clamping systems for the pharmaceutical industry. It features an outer body with no sharp edges eliminating the potential of 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. The new design features an integral bore hole for absolute lockout capabilities. This innovative 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 a completed assembly.

Pure-Fit ® TC Characteristics

Pure-Fit® TC is constructed from high performance thermoplastic materials such as PVDF or polypropylene. Pure-Fit® TC comes in two standard sizes (3/8'' and 3/4'') to accommodate a wide range of tubing products.

Pure-Fit ® TC Compatibility

Pure-Fit® TC is fully autoclavable and sterilizable and meets all USP Class VI criteria. Pure-Fit® TC ultimate tube clamps have been physically tested to meet the most demanding applications.
