T-FIT® advanced piping insulation technology launches T-FIT® Hygiene at INTERPHEX 2019

T-FIT®, a Zotefoams plc business, will be launching its safe, sanitary and simple pipework insulation system, T-FIT® Hygiene, at this year’s International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX) in New York, USA.

T-FIT is a unique, modular technical pipework insulation system purposely designed for highly controlled production environments. Visitors to booth 3822 will have the opportunity to discover the performance and value proposition of T-FIT Hygiene as it launches at INTERPHEX 2019.

Manufactured from Zotefoams’ ground-breaking ZOTEK® F43HT, the PVDF polymer foam has been developed specifically for aseptic areas due to its completely closed cell structure, that is fibre-, dust-, and particulate-free, inherently hydrophobic and highly resistant to bacteria and mould growth. With an operating range of -80ºC to +160ºC, T-FIT Hygiene is suitable for both chilled and hot processing applications, eliminating troublesome condensation issues and significantly reducing the risk of contamination. T-FIT Hygiene’s flexible, slimline tubes are easily adaptable to the demands of complex pipe runs and, with a fast and easy installation process, the system integrates with ease, reducing labour costs and downtime and reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Accompanying T-FIT Hygiene will be T-FIT’s debut product T-FIT Clean, the pipework insulation of choice for cleanrooms worldwide due to its exceptional performance benefits, which include safety, sustainability and low total cost of ownership. T-FIT Clean is the only foam product that meets or exceeds all relevant global standards for cleanroom insulation, including FM4910 Cleanroom Materials Test Protocol and ASTM G21-15 Standard Practice for Determining Resistance of Synthetic Polymeric Materials to Fungi, making it the only foam insulation material compliant with cGMP.

As the pharmaceutical sector continues to grow globally, T-FIT recognises innovation and product development is vital in supporting the industry achieve even higher levels of product quality as it offers a growing range of technical insulation with unique manufacturing benefits.

Zotefoams Group CEO, David Stirling, says, “We’ve experienced significant increase in demand for T-FIT globally, so we see INTERPHEX as the ideal platform to restate the benefits of T-FIT Clean and to introduce T-FIT Hygiene, thereby enhancing the choice and flexibility of the range. With demand continuing to grow our capacity investments worldwide will enhance our supply, sales and service capabilities to ensure that T-FIT continues to be the technical insulation of choice.”
