Polymeric Tubing | Low Pressure Zones - PTFE
Use low pressure tubing on all HPLC systems; before the injector, after the detector, on mobile phase inlet tubing and “to waste” tubing. Low pressure tubing is also used for low pressure LC systems where chemical inertness is desired. All MicroSolv™ low pressure tubing is pure and chemically inert. We offer 4 different types for your specific needs.
PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene aka Teflon™) - This Lowest Cost tubing is widely used in all low-pressure laboratory applications. Please be aware that all PTFE tubing contains micro-pores in the tubing wall. These micro-pores allow for a quick air exchange. This is of special consideration for degassed and oxygen-sensitive solvents. Our PTFE tubing is extruded from virgin PTFE manufactured exclusively by DuPont™; the original manufacturer of PTFE material. We do not add any additives to the original PTFE material, except for color particles in the solid colored tubing.
