Reducing Ferrules

Reducing ferrules provide an inexpensive way to connect small temporary transfer lines to valves or fittings designed for larger tubing. For long term use, we recommend our reducing unions, internal reducers (IZRs), or external reducers (EZRs), as appropriate.

Internal reducing ferrules

Internal ZDV reducing ferrules are designed for use with all standard Valco internal style fittings - that is, those with a male nut and female fitting detail.

External reducing ferrules

External ZDV reducing ferrules are designed for use with all standard external style fittings - that is, those with a female nut and a male fitting detail.

Standard reducing ferrules

Standard reducing ferrules can be used where mixing is not a problem, such as with liquid or gas delivery. A 1/16" to 1/32" ferrule of this style is simply a 1/16" ferrule with a 1/32" hole.

TECH TIP

If you are doing resistive heating of traps or columns, note that our virgin polyimide reducing ferrules are effective electrical insulators.
