Our Conical Adapters include several products that have been engineered to connect between soft-walled tubing and rigid-walled tubing. The Peristaltic Tubing Adapters included in this family of products come as 2-packs and can facilitate a very secure connection between the soft-walled tubing and 1/16 inches outer diameter rigid-walled tubing using the included compression fitting set. (Other tubing sizes can also function with the 1/4-28 threaded, flat-bottom ports that are part of the design of these adapters.) Our standard Conical Adapter Assemblies come individually packaged and can facilitate the connection of both 1/16 inches outer diameter and 1/8 inches outer diameter rigid-walled tubing to softer-walled tubing of varying inner diameter. While the Conical Adapter Assemblies are easy to use, they do not incorporate a locking collar, as do the Peristaltic Tubing Adapters. As such, the pressure rating for the Conical Adapter Assemblies tends to be lower than that offered with the Peristaltic Tubing Adapters.
Our Conical Adapter Assemblies facilitate the connection of rigid and semi-rigid walled tubing to soft-walled peristaltic tubing with a variety of inner diameters. The unique design of this adapter incorporates a two-stage nose onto which soft-walled tubing can be pressed, and the rigid-walled tubing is connected to the other end of the adapter assembly through the use of the included Super Flangeless™ fittings.

Our Peristaltic Tubing Adapter Sets facilitate a secure connection between soft-walled, peristaltic tubing and more traditional, rigid-walled tubing. Through the use of a ribbed nose that fits securely inside the soft-walled tubing and a retainer sleeve that slips over the soft-walled tubing, this adapter firmly holds peristaltic tubing in place, while simultaneously allowing more permanent 1/16 inches outer diameter tubing (e.g., FEP, PEEK, Stainless Steel) to be joined on the other end through the use of the Flangeless Fittings (included). These 2-pack sets allows you to make your own stoppered tubing assembly for use with some peristaltic pumps, while also minimizing the amount of soft-walled tubing that must be used in the fluid pathway. These adapters can be used with soft-walled tubing with a variety of inner diameters and outer diameters, as indicated.
