This medical grade silicone cylinder has an important role to play when it comes to our powerful vacuum suction. It is also a vital part of keeping milk safe in our closed system breast pumps. The cylinder acts as a solid barrier to prevent air, moisture, and milk from entering into pump tubing. More importantly, it can preserve the nutrition in our ‘liquid gold’– breastmilk.

To ensure the best performance of your breast pump, we recommend replacing the breast pump silicone cylinder every 8-12 weeks, depending on cleaning and use. Like all parts and accessories, it is inevitable that their performance will also decrease over time. If you’ve noticed that your breast pump is not performing well, please do check its parts or accessories one by one. Check the valves, the cylinder, flange, backflow protector, and the membrane, etc. Try to remember if it’s already been a couple of months since you’ve replaced the parts. If there’s a tear in your breast pump silicone cylinder, then it’s about time to replace it.
