what is defined tubing routing?

About the System

DTR (Defined Tubing Routing™) is a new innovative product specifically engineered for pharmaceutical single use applications. Using both extruded and injection moulded plastic components it has been designed to be installed quickly for both new build and retrofit applications.

Whilst defining the route of the tubing it also improves the aesthetic appearance of the facility and reduces the trip hazards.

If the end users requires multiple product change overs and these changeovers result in the need to modify the routing then the installation can be installed with this flexibility built in. Our technical support team are happy to advise on how to mount the DTR™ if a high degree of flexibility is required.

Versatility is key

DTR (Defined Tubing Routing™) can be supplied in up to 12 different colours. Colour coding has long been seen as a reliable method of error proofing operations. With the advent of single use the chance for addition errors (especially in Downstream operations) has increased. DTR™ is the first product to target this negative aspect of single use facilities.

DTR™ is not available for all tubing sizes, however it has targeted the most popular sizes of tubing use in the industry. If you require a size that is not currently available please contact our technical team and we will let you know if we have plans to make it in the future. We manufacture the product in 2.9 metre lengths. Non standard lengths can be supplied on request. Please contact our sales team.

Supporting documentation is available on request.
