A Practical Guide to Connections and Fittings in Your Laboratory

Welcome to FITTINGS 101! You are about to embark on an exciting journey designed to help you grasp the fundamentals of equipment fittings and accessories, as well as some basics about liquid chromatography as an analytical technique. You have most likely been introduced to some of the topics covered in this manual. We’ve found that a lot of the fundamental information about fittings and making good connections isn’t generally known… often because the information isn’t covered in most college-level classes. Also manufacturing companies use their own lingo to describe engineering terms, mathematical measurements, and material names. Gain the confidence you need to know exactly what fitting you need in almost any laboratory application.
