:( what a shame.Did it stick to it? or get soft and expand?Have you ever tried a section of glass tube as a liner?Rich.
Hello,I am not sure what happened, exactly, as I sent this away for testing. Once it is shipped back, I intend to mill out cross-sections and see what it looks like internally.I haven't considered a glass tube as I don't have the experience nor tools to work glass. If glass liners would work, making them on a production scale would be another issue as well.Regards,Brian
Hi Brian,You can get Borosilicate glass tubes with a 6mm outer 3mm inner and a very high tolerance for the scientific community, you can get them cut to order, but it's easy to score and snap them to size yourself.I will try one at some point, but if anyone else wants to give it a go - here is a place in the UK that sells tubes - http://www.glass-solutions.co.uk/glass-tubing-calculator.html
Hello,Sorry about the late reply. I was considering your comment. The only thing I am wondering about would be how to seal them between the glass and the brass.Regards,Brian
Did you try PEEK-PFTE combination material as TECAPEEK http://www.plasticsintl.com/tecapeek.htmprobably no more PTFE tubing will be neededYura
Sorry I mean TEKAPEEK TF10 (PEEK PTFE composite)
