It can be difficult to insert the sample tube into the peristaltic pump tubing on your ICP-MS / ICP-OES. This is particularly so if the peristaltic pump tubing has a small internal diameter (ID). An example is the pump tubing used for the internal standard which usually has an ID of 0.2 to 0.4mm and is incompatible with the sample tubing OD of 1.3mm. The flared end of this pump tubing allows the larger sample capillary tubing to be inserted.
Flared End Tubing is available in 2 and 3 shoulder options in the following materials:
- Viton® (Acidflex)
Look for the Flared End Tubing options when selecting your normal pump tubes.
