NO Tooling Costs Apply for “Standard” Ferrules . . . 
> OR NON-Standard “negotiable”  !
> with YOUR Fitting sample &/or DIMS provided > but depending on difficulty !
ie re >Wall Thickness & Length & as per our GF Spec Data Sheet !

  • Graphite Ferrules are UNIQUE
  • Soft > Malleable & squash into Shape > in-situ !
    BUT STILL relatively FRAGILE > Handle with Care !
  • DISCLAIMER > over-ride
    Thread & Inner profile of NUT invariably results in extrusion of the Graphite into the threads etc > some applications the ferrules may be marginally COMPROMISED re compression Density !
  • ASK > for recommendations in these “extreme” situations !
  • NOT All DIMS are in fact feasible > a L and Wall Thickness compromise !
  • Custom Tooling : Small <1/2”ID $100; Large >1/2” - 1”ID; $175 1-2”$210 - IF required ?
    > ASK !
  • “some” Limitations > Size vs Wall thickness vs Length > ASK !
  • Graphite Ferrules are NOT machined as such \ but compressed in a “Die Set” !)
  • > Soft / Malleabe & CAN be squashed in-situ into shape ( but marginally ? > by a few “thous” w/o losing integrity )
  • BUT High Compression Moulding in a Tooling “Die Set”
    Extreme Pressures R used ( but Graphite is “elastic”) and the laminated format whilst a good compromise can still result in trace Air infusion / leaks under high vacuum (GC/MS Apps).
    This is minimised by high torque tightening in a “truly captured” fitting format ! In situ torque tightening The NUT > much higher compression  ( straight GFs “properly captured )
      
    Limit Overtightening breaking fragile tubes with an appropriate” Torque Wrench “ !
     
  • ALWAYS TRIAL TEST RE- SAFETY ! > & Can be highly APP DEPENDENT !
    re temperature and Pressure > Graphite has a LOW co-eff of friction ! > re end Pressure !
    RE Supporting extreme weights in a Vertical position > Tube may tend to “slide” > out !
    > an EXTREME situation > TEST Safely . . . but Be-A-Ware !

some
APPS

  • General Purpose Ferrules -
  • Replaceable ( IE Nut & GF simply slides OFF! ), ( cost savings ! > eg for protypes & re-usable ! ) The GF actually “extrudes” into the thread of the Nut and can’t be easily removed intact !
    > LOW Cost> re-Usable ! ( with Care ! ) compared to Metal(SS)
  • Reducing Ferrule Apps ( compared to expensive metal fittings )
  • Mainly Low(er) Pressure ! ( <<1000psi depending on size ? )
  • HIgh Temperature APPS >1000C in inert atmosphere ( furnace tubes )
  • Gas Chromatography Columns, Inlet Liners
  • Glass / Ceramic ( Catalyst )Tubes  > eg Gas Generators
  • HighTemp Spectra Cells “ Glass / Quartz { for  eg IR, FTIR
    ( higher VOCs > ~C20 )
  • -    where Size DIMs eg OD are far more critical to fit & seal !
    NOT RECOMMENDED For High/Vacuum OR many GC/MS APPs > Use OK IFUpstream +ve Pressure and/or custom “Capture-Type” GF Fittings > ASK !
    eg Fisons> CarloErba

In Fact

The UNIVERSAL Ferrule for many APPS
SOFT & Malleable material NOT Amorphous ! NOT Fragile ! Except large Ferrules Handle with Care ! > certainly
NOT like  “Hard”  “pencil-type” amorphous Graphite !

 where normal metal Ferrules might be Useless ! in fact ?
> & tend to break or distort glass, ceramic > metal tubing !
( & fittings particularly IF / When Overtightened !
always use a Torque Wrench for these ! )

  • what’s-more ! with care the GFs can be reused !
    > & the Nut & GF simply slides-off the tube !
    Retain the GF inside the NUT as It extrudes into the Nut Thread
    trying to remove it will in fact destroy the GF !
    > The “captured” GF inside the “nut” is Then re-useable  !
    with Care > & Many Times ? > a significant cost saving !
  • GFs do NOT require any metal “backing” ferrule !
     . . . except for large sizes 1.5, 1.75, 2.0”ID where
    Your “existing” SL backing ferrule may be required > useful  ! . . .
    ( and they use much less graphite for us & thus easier to make ! )

for OPTIMUM Performance > Use OUR recommended SPECs
> as many compromises are possible ELSE > a DISCLAIMER !
NOT ALL Your wishes are necessarily Practical ! either !
Large GFs ( >1.5:ID) >  Default WE Now assume you will use a Swagelok SS Backing Ferrule ( yours ! ) ASK ! _ 4 Our ease of production !
