VacuTight™ Ferrules How-To Guide

by IDEX Health & Science

Instructions For Use

  1. Slide the nut and ferrule, in that order, onto the tubing, being certain the narrower end of the ferrule faces towards the nut.
  2. Insert the assembly into the receiving port. Push the tubing into the port until it bottoms out against the ferrule.
  3. Fingertighten the nut until snug, while continuing to hold the tubing against the bottom of the port.
  4. If using a wrench to further tighten Hex Head nuts, we recommend tightening no more than an additional 1/4 to 1/2 turn past finger tight.

Please note: The VacuTight ferrule must be used exclusively with a VacuTight nut.
