Upchurch Scientific® Static Mixing Tees are ideal for microbore or analytical gradient HPLC. They have a low swept volume of 2.2 µL (includes frit volume) and are designed for flow rates of 0.5 to 3 mL/min and a maximum pressure of 5,000 PSI (345 bar). The back pressure caused by the tee is typically only 10 to 20 PSI (0.7 to 1.4 bar) at these flow rates. The thru-holes are 0.020" (0.50 mm) and the center port features a 10 µm UHMWPE or stainless steel frit that aids mixing.
The Micro Static Mixing Tee utilizes a specifically engineered internal geometry to efficiently mix two fluid streams into one combined stream. The center port also features a 0.5 µm porosity PEEK polymer frit to aid in mixing. This frit adds a maximum of 20 PSI (1.4 bar) back pressure to most systems (within the stated flow rate range). The Mixing Tee handles a maximum pressure of 5,000 PSI (345 bar) when directly connecting 1/16" OD tubing, or up to 4,000 PSI (276 bar) with capillary tubing when using NanoTight™ Fittings and Tubing Sleeves.
Turbulent mixing of solvents often increases outgassing. To maintain a bubble-free fluid pathway; we recommend solvent degassing when using this product.
The frit incorporated into our U-466 and U-466S Static Mixing Tees is not replaceable. If it becomes clogged, the Mixing Tee must be replaced.
