New - Fluoroelastomer peristaltic pump tube

Improving your PERFORMANCE

Chemical compatibility table


This new peristaltic pump tube from Gore operates 50 times longer than any other fluoroelastomer
tubing. It lasts for thousands of hours pumping aggressive chemicals that often attack other tubing
materials. This level of durability greatly reduces the risk of unexpected tube rupture, which means
fewer shutdowns to replace tubing, plus significant increases in productivity.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

GAS COMPATIBILITY
The compatibility data* shown on the following pages has been compiled to assist in
evaluating the appropriate materials to use in handling various gases. It is extremely
important that all gas control equipment be compatible with the gas being passed
through it. The use of a device that is not compatible with the service gas may damage
the unit and cause a leak that could result in property damage or personal injury. To
reduce potentially dangerous situations, always check for compatibility of materials
before using any gases in your gas control equipment.
Since combinations of gases are virtually unlimited, mixtures (except for Ethylene Oxide/
Halocarbon and Ethylene Oxide/CO2 sterilizing gas mixtures) are not listed in the Compat-
ibility Chart. Before using a gas mixture or any gas not listed in the chart, we strongly urge
you to contact your nearest Advanced Representative for information and assistance.

* This chart has been prepared for use with dry (anhydrous) gases at normal operating temperature of 70°F.
Information may vary if different operating conditions exist. Systems and equipment used in oxidizer gas
service (e.g., Oxygen or Nitrous Oxide) must be cleaned for oxidizer service.

IMPORTANT
This information is for experienced operators who know the general principles and the
safety precautions to be observed in handling specialty gases and associated equipment.
If you are not certain you fully understand these safety precautions, we urge you to
obtain and read the applicable Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) and Equipment
Instruction Booklet.
The information contained in the Compatibility Chart has been compiled by Advanced
from what it believes are authoritative sources and it is offered solely as a convenience
to its customers. While Advanced believes that this information is accurate and factual
as of the date of this publication, this information is intended to be used only as a
guide in providing general information with respect to the products mentioned; and,
therefore, it is not to be taken as a warranty or representation for which Advanced
assumes legal responsibility.
Since the user’s product formulation, specific use application, and conditions of use
are all outside Advanced’s control, Advanced makes no warranty or representation
regarding the result which may be obtained by the user. It shall be the responsibility
of the user to determine the suitability of the user’s gas control equipment for use with
the products mentioned.

2.11 ELASTOMERI TERMOPLASTICI (TPE)


Gli elastomeri termoplastici (comunemente noti come TPE) sono l'anello di giunzione fra il mondo della
gomma vulcanizzata e quello dei polimeri termoplastici; infatti i TPE consentono di ottenere caratteristiche di
elasticità e di "gommosità" talvolta simili a quelle della gomma vulcanizzata ma si trasformano con le
normali tecnologie utilizzate per i materiali termoplastici (stampaggio a iniezione, estrusione, soffiaggio,
ecc.) consentendo anche il recupero degli scarti di lavorazione

Il Santoprene® resiste ad ozono, irraggiamento solare, acqua, acidi, basi, liquidi oleosi, grassi.

Normally each time an oxygen system is planned,


suitable company standards should be available
which specify components and materials to be
used, rather than referring to the above sources in
detail. This document therefore outlines only the
basic recommendations for oxygen systems.

If established company standards are not


followed, or do not exist, then additional research
must be carried out to avoid accidents. Note that it
is the responsibility of the company and the
system design engineer to ensure that safety
aspects have been properly covered.

(2) The same rules apply in principle to nitrous oxide systems as to oxygen. Oxidation reactions with
nitrous oxide give off more heat than oxygen. On the other hand, nitrous oxide reactions require a
higher activation energy, which makes them more difficult to initiate. Violent reactions can take place
once the ignition is started since nitrous oxide can decompose. Hot work must not be carried out on
any equipment under pressure or which have not been purged (also compare with the decomposition
properties of Ozone).

IGC Chairman’s Report


Helmut Kahl, the 2004-2005 Chairman of the Industrial Gases Council

European Aspects
The enlargement of the European Union starting 1st May 2004 is also a challenge for
Contents our EIGA work. Over a period of years IGC and the Working Groups have exerted
their influence on new and modified European Directives – and they will continue to
do so. Now the new EU countries are faced with the implementation of European
legislation. EIGA will assist in this process as far as our industry is concerned. The
EIGA Office News 2 strong links between EIGA and national industrial gas associations – also in the new
member states – will promote these efforts.

Publications 2 International Harmonisation


Besides European issues an increasing part of our committee work is dedicated to
international harmonisation. Safety, environmental and technical standards and codes
of practice are being harmonised. The International Harmonisation Council IHC
Working Group News 3
consists of associations from Europe (EIGA), USA (CGA), Asia (AIGA), Japan
(JIGA) and Australia/New Zealand (ANZIGA). At the last IHC meeting in March
2004 the following harmonisation projects were proposed:
Safety Advisory Group (SAG) 3
Code of Practice for Oxygen Compressors (Installation / Operation)
Code of Practice for Acetylene (based on a just completed new EIGA document)
Transport (WG-1) 3 Oxygen / Aluminium Compatibility (based on existing CGA documents)
Safe Operation of Reboilers / Condensers in ASUs (revision of an existing
Gas Cylinders and Pressure harmonised document).
Vessels (WG-2) 4 These new projects are due to be endorsed by the IOMA Global Committee end of
May. EIGA Working Groups are active in already running harmonisation projects
which were introduced in earlier editions of the EIGAzette. Some new harmonised

This is one of the above mentioned harmonisation projects. To provide better support
Safety Data Sheets for the regulation watch process at the UN Sub-Committee of Experts a new ad hoc
SDS (AHG-4.3) 5 group was established which directly reports to IGC. One of the dominant GHS
subjects for our industry is the classification of gas mixtures for toxic effects. In the
Environment (WG-5) 6 preparation of the next meeting on UN level in July 2004 experts from EIGA and
CGA are in touch to prepare a joint gas industry position.

(WG-6) 7 The EIGA Position Paper which had been prepared by the relevant ad hoc group was
modified to take into account changes in the draft EU Regulation concerning
Medicinal Gases (WG-7) 7 Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation on Chemicals. A delay is however to be
expected in the further development of REACH due to the up-coming European

laboratory constraints and differences in field applica-
tions, the results shown in this technical information
may be based on conditions that may not necessarily
reflect actual operating environments for a specific
application. Additionally, many elastomeric materials
may show excellent chemical resistance to pure
reagents in relatively short-term laboratory tests.
However, they may fail in actual service because of
chemical attack by additives and/or impurities. Kalrez
perfluoroelastomer parts, with their near-universal
chemical resistance, provide an extra degree of safety
against these unknown corrosive influences.

proceeding. Testing is always recommended for each proposed use of Kalrez because actual application conditions may vary.

Kalrez® KVSP™ chemical compatibility
resists chemical attack from all chemicals
listed under the Clean Air Act.
The Kalrez® valve stem packing systems (KVSP) are virtually unaffected by over 1800 chemicals and solvents . . . from acetone to sulfuric
acid, from heat transfer fluids to steam service. The Kalrez valve stem packing systems are based on using component materials with
chemical resistance similar to DuPont Teflon® and as such resist chemical attack and can handle temperatures to 288°C (550°F).
Kalrez is an elastomeric derivative of Teflon, using the same base monomer as Teflon TFE as part of its chemical structure. Kalrez
provides a unique balance of nearly universal chemical resistance and high temperature stability combined with the memory and sealing
characteristics of a rubber.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations include the volatile hazardous air pollutants (VHAPs) under Appendix A and
extend through the five production process category groups listed under Appendix B.
