Tygon LMT-55 Tubing (15 m)
The Tygon® LMT-55 Tubing is an inexpensive all-round tubing for general laboratory applications without DEHP.
It is the Tygon blend of choice for general laboratory applications featuring transparent walls and low gas permeability — and with many different sizes from which to choose — this tubing material option is the option of choice for many less critical applications.
To determine the expected flow rates related to the tubing inner diameters, see the technical specifications for your pump model.
The low overall lifetime of this material will require tubing to replaced more frequently. For a longer life version of Tygon LMT-55, consider the Tygon S3 E-LFL.
