The LiteTouch Fittings System from Upchurch Scientific® grips tubing at two compression points, holding to high pressures with Fingertight convenience. It also prevents polymer tubing from twisting, a potential problem when using standard Fingertight fittings. LiteTouch Fittings are available for use with 1/32", 1/16" and 1/8" OD tubing sizes, and for 10-32 and 1/4-28 coned ports.
For those space-limited applications where nut heads interfere with each other, try our FlushNut™ Fittings. (FlushNut Fittings require a tightening tool.)
To avoid collapsing the ID of your tubing, Upchurch Scientific recommends the LiteTouch system be used on hard tubing only, such as stainless steel and PEEK™ polymer tubing. We do not recommend the LiteTouch Ferrule System for repeated use in plastic ports.
Ultra High Performance version of a LiteTouch Fitting is available.
