Luer fittings are small-bore, friction-based, leak-proof systems to make connections between a male-taper fitting and its mating female part on medical and laboratory instruments, such as between syringes and hypodermic needles or between stopcocks and certain dispensing tips. Their prominent use is to connect tubing and equipment for the transfer of fluids and gases where a non-permanent, leak-proof connection needs be made. Stainless steel Luers are efficient in higher temperatures and can be sterilized using an autoclave. These Luers are more corrosion resistant than their nylon, polypropylene and polycarbonate counterparts.
Application Examples ▼
Luer fittings are widely used in laboratories, medical devices and intervention therapies. Some examples are gas chromatography, cell research, intravenous catheters, feeding tubes, ventilators and the common hypodermic syringe. Often, these stainless steel fittings are used on devices as a fixed component. Component Supply seeks to assist researchers and product designers in determining the best products for their specific applications. While we do provide some information regarding the potential applications of our products, often there are many more possibilities. Therefore, if you do not see a description for an application that suits your needs, please contact one of our representatives who can give you further information about this product and others that might aid your project.
