6mm Ferrule with 1/4" tubing? Can it work?
Short story long. Purchased a Swagelock Regulator with 6mm OD tubing connections coming off of the solenoid valve. I was trying to put together a Cerges Reactor using 10" RO Housing unit with 1/2" ports. I was going to connect the CO2 to the reactor with a Mur-Lok Reducer T 1/4x1/2x1/2. Tonight I was trying to get the ferrules front/back from my old 6mm tubing onto my new 1/4" polyethylene tubing and that last 0.35mm is tough. That is the 1/4" tubing is ever slightly so larger than 6mm. Has anyone else had luck making this happen? Are there any tricks to getting these ferrules on? Thanks all.
