I’m using 3/16″ OD tubing and can’t find any fittings to replace the ones I’ve just worn out—where can I get these?

We offer some flangeless-type fittings that will work with your 3/16″ OD tubing. The flangeless nuts are manufactured from PEEK (part number P-132) and from Delrin, an acetal resin (part number P-138). For general organic or neutral pH applications, the Delrin version offers sufficient compatibility. For the best overall solvent resistance, however, the PEEK version is recommended. The ferrule you will need to use with the nut is part number P-133, specifically manufactured for use with both the P-132 and the P-138, and with 3/16″ OD tubing.
