Our client on this project, EL-Science, is a company specialising in the manufacture, analysis and quality control of products used in the e-cigarettes industry. Their testing laboratory team needed an interface manufactured in plastic which was to be used in the analysis of e-cig vapour.
The resulting three-part assembly, manufactured in PTFE, is shown in the accompanying photos. With approximately a 1″ long thread and a nut of 1″ AF , and featuring internal rubber O-rings, a PTFE ‘olive’ and an internal groove designed to channel the vapour on test, the resulting setup worked well for this exacting application.
In fact in reply to our request for feedback on the parts, their Senior Analytical Chemist replied, “They work perfectly! Thank you so so much!”
