Manufacturers of Standard and Custom Hose Fittings and Plastic Tubing
Founded in 1987, Eldon James manufactures a wide range of standard and custom products including PVC FREE medical grade tubing and fittings. We provide tubing and fittings for medical applications such as antimicrobial tubing and fittings, bioprocess tubing, peristaltic pump tubing, heat formed tubing, biomedical fittings, clamps and other custom products for the medical, biomedical, pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.
PVC Free Tubing and Fittings
Responding to the medical industry’s growing concerns over the health issues associated with PVC and their demand for alternatives in tubing applications where flexibility is required, Eldon James has developed TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) tubing that has proven to be an excellent alternative to PVC. The properties of TPE include high flexibility, extremely low permeability and 100% organic emissions when incinerated, which make it ideal for IV gas sample lines and other medical applications. Eldon James is one of the only manufacturers in the United States that manufactures, assembles and packages PVC-Free tubing and fittings in a single clean room environment.
Cleanroom and Antimicrobial Products
EJ BioMed, a division of Eldon James, operates a cleanroom facility that focuses on the manufacture of products designed for the life sciences, bioprocess, biomedical, pharmaceutical and similar critical-use applications. Our antimicrobal protected tubing and fittings inhibit the growth of bacteria, molds, fungi, and other microbes through the release of silver (Ag) ions. Unlike organic based antimicrobial agents found in antibacterial soaps, silver is an inorganic metal ion that has not been shown to contribute to the creation of 'super bugs' like those resulting from the overuse of antibiotics.

The antimicrobial tubing and fittings along with other medical grade tubing and fittings, including TPE (a safe and effective alternative to PVC tubing), are manufactured with the option of full assembly in the same cleanroom environment.

Begin by checking the Chemical Resistance charts These charts provide a general reference for establishing compatibility between our plastic materials and various chemicals. Note: the charts are for reference only - we strongly recommend testing to a standard that takes into account the actual chemical concentrations and environmental conditions specific to your application. Please contact us for free testing samples.
Eldon James operates a 3rd party certified cleanroom. The ISO Class 8 environment guarantees the cleanest and safest products possible. We frequently operate our cleanroom around-the-clock to get products to customers faster.
Eldon James materials and processes have been purposefully chosen to minimize the pollution caused during their life-cycle. We don’t manufacture any PVC, a material whose production can negatively affect water and air quality. During PVC’s useful life it will leach Phalates (and sometimes BPA and lead), and most damaging of all, it releases high levels of dioxins when disposed. We’ve worked hard to develop a full line of replacement resins that are eco-friendly, cost effective, and high quality.
Eldon James has a history of working with other manufacturers and designers to facilitate speed-to-market. The company shares its expertise and manufacturing experience with organizations that are interested in developing relationships beneficial to both parties. In addition; molding or extrusion, based on a customer's requirements, is often possible when quantity requirements are sufficient to offset tooling costs.
Eldon James offers state-of-the-art, technical assembly services. Please contact Customer Support for information about custom fabrication capabilities and lead times
Adherence to standards set forth by the ISO 9001-2008 Quality Management System underscores Eldon James dedication to quality and customer satisfaction. The ISO 9001 Quality System is a standard recognized worldwide.
To insure accuracy, quality control instruments are calibrated at the start of each production day. Regular measurements are taken as parts come from the molding machines, allowing for machine performance monitoring during the run cycle of each job.
