Tygon TygoLink Manifold System

The TYGON® Tygo-LinkTM manifold is a true industry first and has been awarded a U.S. Patent (No. 6,290,265) for its unique features. Utilizing S.I.B.® (Smooth Inner Bore) technology TYGON® Tygo-LinkTM manifolds minimize the need for fittings, connections or assembly and all leak points and entrapment areas have been eliminated.

Characteristics

Process engineers and designers can specify any combination of manifolds. TYGON® Tygo-LinkTM manifolds are available for use with either TYGON® 3350 non-reinforced silicone tubing or TYGON® 3370 braid-reinforced silicone hose for elevated pressure applications. TYGON® Tygo-LinkTM manifolds can be autoclaved or cleaned and sterilized by SIP (braid-reinforced only) gamma radiation or CIP procedures.

Biocompatibility

TYGON® Tygo-LinkTM manifolds are manufactured from the finest grade of silicone materials and is fully characterized, validated and tested to a variety of specifications including USP Class VI criteria, ISO 10993 and European Pharmacopoeia 3.1.9.
