High-quality tubing for diverse applications
Spetec GmbH has grown into one of the world's major manufacturers of peristaltic pumps, which are now produced both as made-to-measure units and as OEM versions in a wide variety of types.
And one thing that these types of pumps always need is tubing. Peristalsis refers to the synchronous contraction of the muscles in hollow organs that propagates as a wave and transports the contents in a given direction. This is the way in which organs such as the human esophagus or intestine work, and they act in the same way as the pump tubing. In humans, hollow organs such as these are of exceptionally high quality, which often allows them to do their job reliably for 80 years or more. This is an indication of how high the quality of the tubing material needs to be in peristaltic systems in order to guarantee acceptable durability. This required decades of development, since the conditions of use were, and still are, so varied.
And who should know better what degree of elasticity
