Idex PEEK Tubing

PEEK™ Tubing

  • 1/16”, 1/8”, 1.8 mm or 2.0 mm outside diameter available
  • Biocompatible, inert and easily cut
  • Great for high pressure applications
  • Maximum continuous use temperature: 100 ºC

Upchurch Scientific® PEEK (polyetheretherketone) polymer tubing is biocompatible, chemically inert to most solvents, and can be used to replace stainless steel tubing in most liquid analytical systems. Unlike stainless steel and titanium tubing, PEEK tubing is flexible and can be easily cut to desired lengths. PEEK tubing can be used with stainless steel or polymer fittings.

PEEK tubing has a very smooth internal surface, which causes less turbulance than similar sized metal tubing, contributing to improved resolution of sample bands. Of all our polymer tubing materials, PEEK is the least permeable to gas (see material properties on our website: www.idex-hs.com).

In addition, much of our 1/16” OD tubing is color-coded so different IDs are easily identified. Our proprietary extrusion process ensures color permanence in our tubing.

PEEK tubing offers outstanding chemical compatibility, with very few solvents interacting with the polymer. For information regarding specific solvents that may interact with the polymer, please visit www.idex-hs.com or contact IDEX Health & Science or your local Distributor.

Our 5’ length tubing is rough cut to approximately 5’1”. A trim cut should be made before use, especially for smaller ID tubing. PEEK tubing can be cut easily with a razor blade. However for an improved cut, try our Tubing Cutters.

 

Application NOTE:

What Size PEEK Tubing Should I Use?

  • It is usually safe to use 0.010” ID x 1/16” OD tubing throughout an analytical HPLC system. With a 0.010” ID, the pressure drop across most tubing lengths is negligible, and the ID is small enough to minimize band broadening.
  • High pressure semi-prep LC systems will most likely use 1/8” OD tubing.
  • Use 1.8 mm OD tubing to replace fluoropolymer tubing used in some Pharmacia®/GE Healthcare systems.
  • Use our 1/32” OD tubing for the high pressure flow path of some Agilent 1100 LC systems.
  • Choose 360 μm OD tubing for most capillary systems.
  • PEEK tubing is available in additional sizes and in 50’ and 100’ lengths.
