I have no doubt someone will furnish you with Peterson's details.

In case you get desperate and need to try and make your own, the material
needs to be "Viton". Do not use neoprene or similar as the perc. will play
havoc with the material.
Now you may have some Viton around. It should be used for all flexible pipe
work for the wet gate and on any Lipsner Smith ultrasonic cleaners that
used CF2. If you do, perhaps, at a pinch, you could fabricate some wipers
by slicing up some unused pipe work.  
I am not recommending it, just advising how you could possibly get out of a
jam. Did it once myself in the Middle East to fix a problem. Not sure if
the pipe and wiper material hardness is the same.
