Cleaning and reuse of tubing

In general, cleaned fluoroplastic tubing should only be reused if the transported product is known and rated with “+” in the chemical resistance chart.

It is not recommended to reuse the tubing with unknown products and mixtures of chemicals. For all water-soluble substances (e.g. salts, acids, bases etc) you can use water as cleaning agent.

Volatile solvents such as alcohols, esters, ketones, low-boiling hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons are given off reversibly by storing under aeration (only if they have not been absorbed by the interior surface of the tubing).

If you are using substances which can only be eliminated by organic solvents or if you are using toxic and dangerous products, the tubing should be disposed appropriately after use. A visual inspection or, in case of unclarity an inspection according to EN 12115, has to be made before reusing cleaned tubing.
