Fingertight Fittings for HPLC and UHPLC

These innovative fittings solve all of the difficulties of cumbersome LC plumbing issues. Forget cutting old fittings off your SS tubing. Throw away your spanners, make column changes in seconds.

Pressure rated up to 25,000 psi (1,720 bar)

  • Patent pending innovative design 
  • Capable of up to ten repeat assembly cycles with no impact on pressure holding ability or carry-over;
  • Available in multiple threaded configurations for use with 1/16 in (1.6 mm) and 1/32 in (0.79 mm) OD tubing 
  • Materials of construction: Stainless Steel and Proprietary PEEK™ polymer blend (PK)

Shimadzu introduces an innovative line of UHP & VHP fittings, designed to withstand extreme pressures. This patent-pending line of ground-breaking fitting systems is perfect for use within the increasingly demanding requirements of today’s high performance analytical systems. The fittings are reusable when following the proper tightening torque specification. With a polymer front ferrule, there is no damage to the tubing or receiving port, also increasing the life of these components.
