All connectors and adapters are printed using PLA PRO tough plastic.
The cone adapter is very useful as it allows for different tubing sizes to connect together, most importantly, with the use of silicone fittings we can adapt test tubes into vinyl tubing, outworlds and formicariums.
*** If you are planning on using these adapters with a test tube, please be sure to also select and add to the order the proper silicone tubing option to complete the fitting (unless you already have such), here are the current options:
We offer silicone tubing in two lengths, 10 cm and 1.5 cm, FDA compliant and can be sanitized at 100 °C without deforming. Using an adapter and 1.5 cm of silicone tubing we can flush test tube set-ups directly to outside worlds or vinyl tubing, see photos for examples, silicone tubing is very soft and grips tightly onto the inside walls of test tubes.
14 mm this silicone tubing flushes securely into our 15 mm O.D. test tubes (not tight on 16 mm tubes).
15 mm this silicone tubing flushes securely into our 16 mm O.D. test tubes.
18 mm this silicone tubing flushes securely into our 20 mm O.D. test tubes.
Dimension KEY for standard tubing outside diameters:
9.5 mm = 3/8 inch
12.7 mm = 1/2 inch
14.3 mm = 9/16 inch
15.9 mm = 5/8 inch
