Combine analytical performance and robustness of legacy industrial design, with improve leak detection capability while maintaining existing system compatibility.
As an improvement to the universal industrial double ferrule fitting design, we have patented the LipLOK design. This design uses two seal points, the first being the ‘coated sealing ring' which is compression fitted to the tube end.
Having the seal point placed here allows minimum loss of analytical performance. This fitting is similar to the VCRTM fitting but has less dead volume in the flowpath. This analytical grade seal performance is achieved between the tube end and the sealing ring feature using a very low torque- almost finger tight.
The double ferrule design provides the second level of sealing, which resists the effects of vibration and protects against ejection of the tube from the fitting. This is achieved without transferring excessive force to the sealing ring.
