Hypodermic Tube Is Available in Small Sections with a 90 Degree Angle 

You might have certain processes and applications which require your hypodermic tube to be bent at a 90 degree angle and be cut to a small length. In the past you may have had to use custom finishing services to have the tubing bent. However, you can now obtain it already prepared at this angle in both one inch and two inch leg sizes. In situations where you need larger leg sizes you are still able to order these to your specifications using secondary finishing services.

You Can Use Straightened Wire by Itself or Combine It with Other Materials

Straightened wire can be used by itself  for certain applications or combined with other materials. For example, certain sizes of this wire will fit inside of hypodermic tubing. When combined in this manner both materials result in creating guide wire assemblies. Wire is also able to be passed through the interior of PTFE tubing anytime the wire has to be insulated and protected from exposure to moisture, extreme temperature conditions or harsh chemicals.

You Can Request Secondary Finishing Operations with Straightened Wire 

You have the option to request secondary finishing operations whenever you order straightened wire. These additional services include precision bending, cleaning, cutting and wire forming to meet your individual requirements. By taking advantage of secondary operations you are able to obtain the wire you need. The wire is ready to use and avoids having to worry about completing these processes yourself.

Blunt Needles May Be Specifically Designed for Certain Applications

Blunt needles are used for a variety of applications and purposes in numerous industries. It is important for you to check with the manufacturer and supplier of your needles to ensure they meet your requirements. Some types of needles are specifically designed for certain purposes, such as being used in the food and beverage industry or manufactured for use in a laboratory setting.

You Can Obtain Blunt Needles to Fit Your Unique Requirements

Some organizations have unique requirements for their blunt needles based upon how they are used. For example, you might need a short length needle for some applications, a longer length needle for other applications and an angled needle for other functions. You are able to find all of these kinds of needles available for your purposes. However you may need to ask for customization and special finishing processes for some of your needles, like having the needle angled at a specific degree.

High Temperature Fluids Can Be Pumped Through PTFE Tubing

One application for PTFE tubing is to use for pumping high temperature fluids and lubricants through machinery. Since its melting point is over 600 degree Fahrenheit, the tubing will not melt as temperatures for most kinds of machinery and the fluids being pumped through the tubing are well below this level. This type of tubing is also suited for pumping fluids in cold environments as it protects fluids from freezing.

Chemical and Laboratory Industries Use PTFE Tubing for Research and Experiments

PTFE tubing is chemically inert which makes it suited for using in laboratory and chemical research and experiments. Different types of acids, bases, organic compounds and other fluids can be passed through the tubing without risk of the tubing failing. This kind of tubing is frequently used in place of glass because of its much larger working temperature range. Using this tubing also removes the risks associated when working with glass in extremely hot or cold processes.

Laboratories Use Nylon Mesh Screen for Research and Experiments

Laboratory research and experiments frequently use nylon mesh screen for a variety of purposes. This type of screen can be used for filtration and separation to remove larger particles from liquids. The amount of filtration and separation required is able to be increased by using several different sizes of mesh openings in a multistage filtration setup. Mesh screen is also used for insect research to keep insects contained during their study.

Different Ways to Use Nylon Mesh Screen in Filtration Systems

In filtration systems nylon mesh screen can be used in different methods. You could use the mesh to capture sediment and particles as water or other fluids are passed through the openings in the screen. You might also create bags using the mesh for putting other kinds of filter media in, like carbon, bio-balls or small rocks. Using the mesh screen in this manner allows fluid to pass over your media while keeping it contained in its desired location in your filter system.


Organizations Might Obtain Hypodermic Tubing in Bulk Sections

Hypodermic tubing frequently is supplied in bulk in individual straight lengths of either 30 inches or 60 inches. For example, you might need 10 inch sections of the tubing for some applications and 12 inch sections for others. Since 10 and 12 both easily divide into 60, is would make sense to order your tubing in the 60 inch sections, rather than the 30. In order to obtain the desired length sections, you do need to cut the tubing down to the correct size using the right kinds of cutting tools.

Besides Ordering Bulk Hypodermic Tubing You Can Also Order Custom Finished Tubing
