FAQs

How do I install the capillary or tubing onto a CapTite or uProcess component using a one-piece fitting?
These Instructions will walk you through the procedure.

How do I cut the PEEK capillary or tubing?
    We recommend cutting the PEEK capillary or tubing using a sharp blade such as a razor blade or X-acto knife.

What is the procedure for cleaving fused-silica capillary tubing with ceramic cleaving stone?
  • Place the capillary tubing on a clean, flat surface. If possible, apply slight linear tension.
  • Holding the cleaving stone at approximately 30° angle to the tubing, draw the non-serrated edge of the cleaving stone across the tubing. Apply just enough pressure to penetrate through the polyimide coating.
  • Pull the tubing axially until it breaks. If it won’t break, the polyimide coating has not been fully penetrated. Repeat the above steps, pressing down with slightly more force while drawing the cleaving stone across the tubing.
  • Once cleaved, inspect the end finish to ensure the cleave quality meets the application requirements.

What is the recommended method for attaching Bonded-port Connectors?
These Instructions will walk you through the procedure.
