Tubes: details make the difference
Did you know that 90% of product contact surfaces in a typical pharmaceutical system come from tubes? Let’s look into the details that make tubes different.
Tri-Clover® UltraPure tubes
High and consistent quality
All Tri-Clover UltraPure tubes are subject to rigorous quality control. Alfa Laval performs all incoming and outgoing quality control and inspections and closely monitors every aspect of the manufacturing process – from raw material sourcing to tolerance and surface finish inspection to packaging and labelling. Ovality and squareness tolerances and all surface finishes, for instance, are inspected with calibrated equipment. This helps ensure the highest quality possible.
Safe and easy installation
Tri-Clover UltraPure tubes originate from the same raw tube supplier to ensure that the materials in the weld ends match perfectly. Both chemical composition and passivity state are guaranteed to ensure maximum compatibility and integrity throughout the range. This simplifies welding and assures continuous high quality welds without cracks, voids, porosity, or joint misalignment that can promote contamination of the end product.
All equipment and components in the Alfa Laval BioPharm portfolio are supplied with Alfa Laval Q-doc, a comprehensive documentation package that provides full transparency of the entire supply chain, from raw material to final equipment delivery. This smoothes purchasing and installation procedures as well as facilitates qualification, validation and change control procedures. Based on GDP (Good Documentation Practice), Alfa Laval Q-doc covers every aspect of BioPharm equipment supply and provides customers with transparent and well-documented quality assurance of the sourced equipment.
The Q-doc package for Tri-Clover UltraPure tubes comprises quality and manufacturing procedures, material certificates and full traceability. This attention to detail maximizes uptime and minimizes risk.
