Micro Fitting for Microfluidics Applications Announced

Aug 09 2017 Read 338 Times

The Click-N-Seal® Micro torque-control fitting from Diba Industries, Inc is available in 6-40 threaded fittings and adds significant value to systems requiring smaller fluid connections. Available for both ferrule and flared connections, the 6-40 Click-N-Seal Micro easily and securely connects 1/16” tubing into 6-40 threaded ports, which are becoming increasingly common as sample sizes get smaller.

As the fitting is hand tightened, the resistance of the cap increases until the correct torque is reached, at which point the cap clicks, indicating that the fitting is properly seated. This creates a secure and leak-free seal every time without the risk of over-tightening. Click-N-Seal Micro fittings feature PEEK™ construction for high chemical resistance and can be unscrewed and reused multiple times.

“Prior to Diba inventing and patenting the Click-N-Seal line of fittings, making precision fluid connections reliable and repeatable had been problematic. The 6-40 Click-N-Seal Micro helps system manufacturers with reliability and performance,” said Gary Helstern, Vice President, Technology and Product Development at Diba.

Ferrule options are available for both conical and flat bottom ports as off-the-shelf products. Flared tube and fittings are also offered for flat bottomed ports on a custom, OEM basis. A custom wrench is available to tighten the fitting in hard to reach places.
