Del-Seal™ CF Fittings
MDC Del-Seal™ CF Tube Fittings are convenient “building-block” components.
They offer great flexibility in the design and construction of high and ultrahigh vacuum systems.
MDC Del-Seal™ CF fittings such as nipples, half nipples, reducer nipples, flexible nipples, elbows with 45° and 90° configurations, tees, reducer tees, crosses with four-, five- and six-way configurations, six-way cubes and multiport flange assemblies comprise the industry's largest selection of Del-Seal™ CF fitted vacuum components. If we do not have the product you seek, custom versions of most of these components can be quoted upon request.

In general, reducers are used for a change in size of
flanges within a
single method of sealing, such as Del-Seal™ CF to Del-Seal™
CF. Reducers may be either zero length or include a section of tubing
Non-zero-length reducers are also called nipple reducers and

configurations of Del-Seal™ CF to various other vacuum connections
are listed in Hybrid
Reducing tees and crosses have a single main tube with main
flanges and a smaller diameter reducer tube with a reducer flange or
