High Performance Replacement Fitting for Agilent 1100/1200 HPLC Systems

Reporter US Vol 27.1

Fast HPLC as well as high resolution HPLC is pushing HPLC systems towards their pressure limits. Whether you are increasing flow rates or column lengths or reducing particle size to gain an advantage in HPLC, these all increase the backpressure in your system. Using PEEK tubing as interconnects is no longer suitable in high performance HPLC. PEEK can slip, stretch, or deform which translates to a decrease in performance. Supelco High Performance Fittings maintain the integrity of your HPLC systems all the way to 15,000 psi.

Agilent 1100/1200 Fitting

A high performance fitting is now available for the Agilent 1100/1200 HPLC system. Semi-rigid 316 stainless steel tubing connects one end to the heater outlet, and allows use of columns by any manufacturer with confidence that the high performance UHPLC fitting is completely seated in the column inlet port. An important feature of this fitting is the ‘service loop’, which allows the column to be semi-rigidly supported.
