Idex NanoTight Tubing Sleeves

NanoTight™ Tubing Sleeves

  • Manufactured from FEP fluoropolymer
  • Pressure rated to 4,000 psi (276 bar)
  • Outer diameter of 1/16” — the most popular size used on most instrumentation

Upchurch Scientific NanoTight Tubing Sleeves are manufactured using FEP fluoropolymer and precisely cut to a 1.6” length. A wide assortment of sleeves is available, ensuring the availability of a NanoTight sleeve for most applications. Many of the sleeves feature a light color tint that can help more easily identify the inner diameter for future orders. Because FEP is the base polymer for these sleeves, there is a maximum recommended continuous operating temperature of 50 ºC.

Upchurch Scientific NanoTight sleeves were designed primarily for use with the NanoTight fittings, and also work well with the Super Flangeless™ fittings for 1/16” OD tubing. For tubing sleeves that can be used effectively with stainless steel fittings and at higher temperatures, consider using the Upchurch Scientific PEEK Tubing Sleeves. 

 

Application NOTE:

Why use Sleeves?

Because most capillary tubing connections are made into coned receiving ports, where the port is not designed to be used with capillary tubing directly, special care must be used to ensure a good connection. While custom ferrules can help make these connections, they only offer a fixed-length nose — and because most tubing pockets will vary slightly in length, this can lead to leaking or dead volume.

To help save overall expense while maintaining a concentric connection with minimal dead volume, IDEX Health & Science recommends the use of sleeves. Because sleeves are not permanently attached to a ferrule, they can easily adapt to varying tubing pocket depths. Additionally, because they are manufactured using Upchurch Scientific extruded polymer tubing, you are assured of the concentricity of the resultant connection.
