Tube Failure Detection (TFD) System by Blue-White Industries

Tube Failure Detection (TFD) System Patent No. 7,001,153

Breakthrough technology for Peristaltic Pumps.

The TFD system will detect a wide range of chemicals (i.e. chlorine, acids, soaps, etc.). This unique technology was designed to ignore pump friendly fluids; such as water condensation and lubricants.

How does it work?

If a chemical is detected in the pumphead (by tube failure), the pump will automatically shut off and energize a relay, permitting communications with external equipment, such as an alarm or a SCADA system.
The chemical must be cleaned from the pump head and the tubing should be replaced before the pump will start again.


  • The TFD system ships as standard on our most popular peristaltic pump models.* No extra cost to you.

  • The sensors are located within the pumphead. Sensors are constructed of chemical resistant Hastelloy-C.

  • Only Blue-White offers this technology. Patent No. 7,001,153

*Excluding A-100NX and A-1600 models
