Polycarbonate Luer Fittings
Component Supply's polycarbonate Luer fittings are part of a standard system to connect small diameter tubing with leak-proof connections. The 6% taper on the male and female engage with each other to provide a secure friction connection as a slip. There also are male fittings with integral locking rings as well as rotating lock nuts allowing for more secure connections when required. Polycarbonate is considered to be the toughest of all plastics with its heat and impact resistance. It is linear, low-crystalline and transparent, and the combination of its strength and elasticity prevents deformation, making it ideal for applications requiring durability. In addition, polycarbonate remains mostly unaffected by greases, oils and acids. Its electrical resistivity as well as the other characteristics can be upheld in a temperature range of -275°F to 250°F. Component Supply also produces Luer assemblies using these polycarbonate Luers and either standard PVC tubing or various Tygon® tubing formulations.
Application Examples (Click to Read)
Polycarbonate Luer fittings are used as connections to another Luer, barb or bulkhead or in a line set where a Luer fitting connects to fractional tubing. Small-bore connectors like these Luers are used extensively in the medical field where medical devices are connected to tubing and accessories responsible for delivering fluids and gases to patients. Other applications include uses in blood pressure cuffs, breathing systems, feeding tubes, intravenous devices, catheters and many more. Component Supply seeks to assist researchers and product designers in determining the best products for their specific applications. While we do provide some information regarding the potential applications of our products, often there are many more possibilities.
