|Fittings handle extreme pressures|
|VICI Valco’s 360 µm high-pressure fittings directly connect 360 micron OD fused silica, PEEK, stainless, or electroformed nickel tubing without liners.
Their compact size and fine 2-56 threads create a sealed connection at pressures in excess of 20,000 psi.
They come with a PEEK nut that includes a glass-filled ferrule and a stainless nut with a 316 SS ferrule. Both snap into place to make one-piece, but rotate without twisting the tube as the nut is tightened.
VICI Valco, based in Houston, manufactures components and equipment for analytical applications. The company has Canadian support operations in Brockville, Ont.
|Connectors handle tough conditions|
|Harting has broadened its range of Han-Eco connectors with improved housings, available in four Han-Eco sizes with one or two cable inlets. M32 cable fittings for sizes 6B and 10B and M40 for sizes 16B and 24B are supplied. The robust housings are made from fibreglass-reinforced plastic, making them highly resistant to harsh environments. The Han-Eco is configurable with a number of Han-Modular modules to carry power, signals or data. An optional protective earth (PE) module holds the ground connector. All metal parts are connected to the ground conductor to prevent accidents. When the connector is closed and locked, it provides IP65 protection and meets the UL94 Class V0 flammability requirements.
