Hi Ben, we did this a while back. What worked for us, we fashioned a syringe with a .32 capillary, and flushed the open split with methanol. We then flushed with helium to dry it, and this worked really well. Good luck!

The reference split on my conflo III has some pretty big dust bunnies/fuzz and scum living inside of it.  Keyboard air just seems to be blowing things around.  Has anyone successfully rinsed or cleaned an open split?


I have it fully removed, which seems like the hard part.


Thanks, Ben
