Is it possible to use 1/16" tubing with 6MB fittings? In my TCEA I have
a 1/16" line going from the reactor to the GC column. The reactor
fitting, much like for any EA uses a 6MB nut. Is there an olive type
aluminum ferrule that will work here? All the major suppliers for
elemental analyzers only sell ferrules for 2mm tubing.
The 2mm tubing tends to be a pain when building custom traps, new GC
columns, or just replacing single sided ferrule connectors with Swagelok
type connectors. Has anyone else ran into this?
