An adapter kit to use 1/32 OD tubing with fittings designed for 1/16" OD tubing
Use 1/32 PTFE Capillary Tubing with with fittings designed for 1/16 OD tubing.
- No need to use fittings for 1/32” OD tubing
- Compatible with ¼-28 & 10-32 fittings for 1/16 OD tubing
- Installable in a few seconds
- Contains PTFE capillary tubing fitted to 1/32″ OD x 300µm ID (30m)
PTFE Teflon capillary microtube fitted to 1/32″ (0,76 mm) OD x 300µm ID (30m):
PTFE Teflon tubing can handle extremely high temperatures in harsh chemical environments. It’s chemically inert, has low permeability, and has the lowest friction coefficient of any tubing. Just like Tygon tubing, Teflon tubing is commonly used to connect microfluidic instruments and microfluidic reservoirs.
1/16 OD FEP Microfluidic Sleeves (x10):
Sleeves are small tubes that slip over a smaller capillary tubing to enlarge its diameter and make this capillary compatible with a fitting designed for larger tubings. The FEP sleeves provided in this kit have an internal diameter fitted to 1/32’’ tubing and a 1/16’’ outside diameter that makes itcompatible with fittings designed for 1/16’’ OD tubing. When used with our 1/4″-28 threaded fittings with Ferrules for 1/16 OD, the principle remains the same as usual, the sealing being done by the ferrule compression on the sleeves, which then compresses the 1/32″ OD tubing to keep it in place.
