For many years, lab research facilities have had problems thoroughly cleaning their sipper tubes. Improper cleaning left germs and pathogens in the tubes to be spread throughout the colony. Most users simply pile all of their sipper tubes into a basket and run them through their tunnel or cage washer. This 'static' washing method is ineffective, because it is virtually impossible for any cleaners or disinfectants to actually enter the inside of the sipper tube. To effectively clean sipper tubes, the tubes need to be agitated, allowing the cleaners to penetrate the inside of the sipper tubes, and kill the pathogens. The Britz Sipper Tube Tumbler is the first and only Sipper Tube Tumbler designed to use your existing washing equipment and independently agitate and thoroughly clean the sipper tubes. This saves you up to $15,000.00 over other independent washing systems.
To use, simply put the battery operated Sipper Tube Tumbler on your tunnel wash belt or into your cage washer. Turn on the drive, and watch the tubes tumble! The Sipper Tube Tumbler will then run through normal tunnel or cash wash cycle. This one of a kind Sipper Tube Tumbler is designed to help eliminate chronic germs and pathogens being left in the sipper tubes.

“The tumbler helped us streamline our cage wash processes and decrease processing time. We also appreciated that leaving the tumbler on after exiting the cage wash helped to accelerate the drying time. We also tested the efficacy of the cleaning of the action tumbler and were pleased with the results. We love it!” From a veterinarian at major southeast university.
