Tubing collapsing due to large suction pressure from rotary lobe style pump
Tubing wall was increased to 0.48 mm / .188 inch from 0.32 mm / .125 inch while maintaining the same inner diameter.
The customer required a high flow rate discharge due a large volume
bottom outlet disposable biobag. This involved switching from a peristaltic pump
to a rotary lobe style pump. Thicker wall tubing prevented the tubing
from collapsing and the specified flow rates are being met.
