Any polyimide-coated FS can be electroplated with pure nickel. This results in a ruggedized traditional FS column (or transfer line with deactivated FS), which can be resistively heated, if desired. Temperature is measured using the resistance of the nickel, removing any need for external sensors. A thin-wall, low mass version optimized for resistive heat applications is available in eight different diameters. We offer several options for tubing connections.
1/32" OD tubing is available in IDs from 10 to 250 µm, permitting use of metal ferrules for improved leak-tight connections - ideal for temperature programmed applications.
