Graphite Ferrules re Packaging
flexibe “squashable material > that’s simply “the beauty” of the material - UNIQUE ! ( . . . GRAPHOIL > “Natural” and NOT a “Fossil Fuel” )
> a precursor in fact  of  “Carbon Nanotubes”

  • Graphite  <<< / graphite (/Vespel), < PTFE <PFA <ETFE < PEEK
     ( <<<copper <Silver <Lead <<<SS ! ) > ALL have different Max Temp restraints etc
     & YES ! WE have tried them ALL !
         
    All are / Can be suitable ( with care  ! ) for glass / fused silica /ceramic tubes but with
    ALL > still need improvisation !
    The perfect sealing material for high Temp Use (450C Max for “extreme” > GC
    but >>> in an Inert Atmosphere ( > 2500C )

    NOTE On SS ferrules ; are always good at least forthe first time use
     
  •   Do NOT Over-tighten ( damage to fitting the SS Ferrule cone is actually designed to bite into the tube to seal > a hardened tip.
  • If in doubt always a “Torque Wrench” > & recommended !
  • OK ! > IF in the exact same “orientation” is achieved on re-doing the seal > re-position etc > 1/2”OD SS Tube can be > Most difficult for repeated use ( Gas chromatohraphy and changing columns often ? the ferrule cone and fitting “Detail”(s) can get distorted . . .> frustration ! . . . > GOOD for SL “sales” !

GRAPHITE Is STILL relatively FRAGILE > still particularly large(r) sizes
HANDLE WITH CARE ! in the Lab

for Shipping packaging

  • Smaller Sizes 1/16 to 1/4”ID we normally 10/pk in Plastic Vials
     >cushioned inside with “cotton wool”
    Sometimes for Our Distributors we : ”Bulk-Pack” in Plastic Bags where  maybe OEM RE Labelling and re-packing may be required !
    > “bulk- Pack” in appropriate larger plastic vials or plastic “Zip-lock” bags

TRANSIT Handling CAN BE a problem !

”Futile” even to Label them “Fragile” re > Freght Couriers > Aust Post etc
can be “just narks” !> “kick them “ to TRY US OUT !
They often seem To have NO Care ! > No Responsibility !

OUR Packaging Methods - Typical for large(r) GFs

NO Perfect ANSWER ! > All a compromise > depends on ready
availability of packing materials re GF Size and its’ close fit for

“with Finger-smoothing” ? but in-situ” recover is possible on re-compressing
inside THE Fitting and under even better compression ?
&/Or with a “torgue wrench” or via THE Nut rotary compression in-situ !

Cross some Limitations :
U “MUST” DIY Trial Test for Different APPS !

Graphite Ferrules are “suspect “under High Vacuum ( eg GC/MS) “
> made from thin tape at very high compression but stll 25% laminated
and can > “micro leaks”
OUR SS Cup>”captrued 1/16” GFs are a big improvemt > with appropriate
re-designed Column Fittings > ef FISONS CarlErba & a few other “smarter”
GC OEMs > USERS . . . ASK !

> > perfect for normal GC especially PREP GC  large diam columns where SS ferrules can be quite useless after repeated column Changes !
or misused > applied !

MAX PRESSURE ?  > DIY  . . . U TEST !

Reducing Ferrule s are “MORE”” limited !
Normal ( laminar ) inside flow far less a problem > tube Strength itself is the
limiting factor ( > Glass wall thickness and OD/ ID etc ) !
Gas Pressure on the face of “exposed“ Tube-end Can cause the tube to
“blow-out ! > a potential HAZARD ! . . . which Limits  the actual MAX psi ???
Graphite
Being an extreme Low Friction Material
- roughening the tube Outer Surface  (under the ferrule) help increase the “grip” > a “grooving tool” can help !

USE Safety Precautions  >  under abnormal Pressure ( and Temperature ) conditions . . . TEST & RE-TEST ! under YOUR APP EXTREMES
