- EXP®2 TI-LOK™ Hand-Tight Fitting with Integral Ferrule (for all tubing)
The EXP2 TI-LOK Fittings offer LC connections that can be hand-tightened to 18,000+ psi (1,250+bar). The fittings are ideal for making HPLC and UHPLC connections that easily fit into tight spaces such as injection valves, column couplers, sample loops and column ovens.
Evolving from the original Titanium Hybrid Ferrule technology, the EXP2 TI-LOK Fittings feature built-in PEEK ferrules and threaded nuts precision machined from titanium. The new fittings combine the superior corrosion resistance and robustness of titanium with the sealing capability of PEEK. Utilizing a unique geometric design, the fittings firmly press tubing against the tube stop of any instrument port creating a zero-dead-volume (ZDV) connection. The ferrule does not permanently swage to the tubing, allowing for many repeat connections and the ability to adjust the tubing to different port depths. EXP2 TI-LOK Fittings are compatible with PEEK, PEEKsil, Hastelloy C and stainless steel tubing.
The fittings include an EXP2 Driver – a small, easy to use knurled torque driver that snaps onto the nuts for hand-tightening and loosening. The EXP2 Driver is slotted and can be removed from the nut and tubing after use.
