Graphite is the best material to work at high temperature and at the same time is the softest ferrule. Therefore it fits the capillary column and seals effectively at only ¼ turn past fingertight. As this is a very soft material, thery are easily destroyed or deformed. Ideal for FID and NPD detectors.
Do not use with MS or other oxygen sensitive detectors.
Upper temperature limit 450ºC.
