Leak-Free Micro Valves target LC and GC applications.
Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

Leak-Free Micro Valves target LC and GC applications.

Offered in 3 configurations withÂ- 7 different flowpaths, Micro Valves simplify liquid or gas handling in liquid chromatography (LC) and gas chromatography (GC) applications. Fitting design allows leak-free seal without any potential for rotor damage from overtightening, and ¼-28 fitting details permit use of 1/16 or 1/8 in. OD tubing. Rated to 200 psi with...

Self-Priming Liquid Handling Pumps offer unlimited capacity.
Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

Self-Priming Liquid Handling Pumps offer unlimited capacity.

Used for precision liquid/gas handling, Cheminert® Model M6 and M50 produceÂ- bidirectional, pulseless flow with range of over 6 orders of magnitude: 5 nL/min to 5 mL/min for M6 and 1 µL/min to 25 mL/min for M50. These positive displacement pumps, which are tolerant of any gas in fluid lines, include software that controls flow rate and direction as well as...

Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

PEEK Tubing comes in several color-coded versions.

PEEK Tubing comes in varieties of natural PEEK®: solid color-coded, dual-layer color-coded, striped, and dash-stripe coded. Dual Layer Color-Coded type eliminates concern that sample stream could be contaminated by pigments used to color code tubing. Available with ODs of 360 micron, 1/32 in., 1/16 in., and 1/8 in. and IDs down to .002 in., tubing uses RoHS-compliant colorants. Tolerance is...

High Pressure Fittings fit 360 µm tubing.

Cheminert UHPLC Fittings permit directÂ- connection of 360 micron OD fused silica, PEEK®, stainless, or electroformed nickel tubing without use of liners. Because of fitting's fine 2–56 threads, leak-free connection that seals at pressures in excess of 20,000 psi can be formed with manual tool. Fittings in PEEK can be used safely up to 10,000 psi. Supplied with PEEK or stainless nut,...

MiniPDD Helium Ionization Detector
Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

MiniPDD Helium Ionization Detector

VICI’s newest member of the Pulsed Discharge Detector (PDD) family is also the smallest and thriftiest. The miniPDD uses about one fifth (20%) the amount of helium as the VICI Valco D-3 and D-4 versions, giving up only a bit of sensitivity and dynamic range in return. It is approximately one half the size of the D-4, but has nearly the same sensitivity — about 100 ppb for fixed gases. With...
