HPNE introduces defined tubing routing for single-use facilities

Flexible support system simplifies and secures tubing paths for biopharmaceutical manufacturers.

High Purity New England (HPNE), a supplier of biopharma equipment and process systems has launched its new line of defined tubing routing (DTR), a flexible tubing support system targeted for single-use biopharmaceutical manufacturing.

This modular system holds silicon tubing securely, eliminating dips and preventing dips that occur in unsupported pressurized lines.

For the first time, skid builders, process engineers, and facilities managers have a proven, mass-produced, and versatile option specifically engineered to define supported and clean routing of single-use tubing.

DTR simplifies single-use tubing management in a cleanroom environment, with colour-coded rigid supports for easy visual identification of each tube connection.

With solid and supported bridges, even over short spans, it securely holds any length of single-use tubing.

The combination of clips and routes are mounted to brackets to provide rigid and secure support, even over long tube runs.

Portable mounting panels can be engineered to get tubing off the floor without damaging cleanroom walls.

Megan Baillie, Product Specialist at HPNE, described DTR as a “simple solution to a ubiquitous problem”. She added: “Skid builders will love the versatility of this product as it can be modified for different needs, including attaching to walls, chromatography columns, and exfiltration systems.”

DTR comes in 2.9-m length, fits a wide range of clips and standard tubing sizes (6 mm–19 mm) and comes in many colours.

As the US facility installer, HPNE can customize DTR for a variety of applications, including for new builds and retrofitted into existing single-use facilities; improved aesthetic to ensure a process appears organized and secure for virtual inspections; and reduced human error and trip hazards.
