Zero dead-volume connection
No limitations for column length and id
Variety of internal diameters for connecting tubing
Convenient connection to standard 1/16″ HPLC ports

How does it work?
SIELC provides an end-piece (A), which includes a 150-mm long narrow bore
PEEK capillary with permanently installed stainless steel sleeve
and with 0.05-mm thick SS frit.
Assembly (B) includes a connection of the end-piece (A) with empty PEEK capillary column and
compressing the sleeve by our specialized tool (D).
The axial forces produced by the tool compresses the end of the sleeve within the anvil
to form a tight permanent connection of the sleeve to the column body (C).
Fully assembled ready for packing capilary column is also available from SIELC
