Connection kit containing a combination of ferrules and tubing.
This page will help you to select the best connection kit for your situation, by making the following selections:
- Holder concept
- Desired tubing outside diameter (OD)
- Tubing material
- Desired inside diameter.
Micronit offers the following holder concepts:
For high pressure applications, the combination of Stainless Steel tubing and the Fluidic Connect 4515 holder is recommended. In most other cases, ETFE is a good choice of material, considering the large advantage that it is translucent, which makes detection of airbubbles easier. PEEK can be a good alternative for specific situations in which ETFE is less desired.
Some advice regarding chemical resistance of different tubing options can be found here.
Ferrule properties are as follows:
|Holder Concept||Tubing outside diameter||Ferrule material family||Elastomer|
|Fluidic Connect Pro||1/16"||FFKM||Yes|
|Fluidic Connect 4515||1/16"||PEEK||No, hard contact with chip. Requires application of correct torque.|
An indication of chemical resistance of the ferrules can be found here.
The 0.13mm internal diameter tubing is only recommended in situations that require more resistance outside the chip.
