Agilent pistons are made from a high purity, monocrystalline sapphire for maximum durability. Although ceramic pistons can be manufactured at a lower cost, ceramic is a sintered, polycrystalline material, which can cause undesirable variations during the production process.
Agilent seals are designed to fit snugly around our pistons, and are capable of adapting to a wide range of flow rates and pressures.
The combination of our piston and seal has undergone extensive testing under temperature stress, with all common HPLC solvents, and in many instruments. More importantly, they yield consistent, reproducible results.
Agilent Technologies products are intended for sale/shipment within the US only. International customers should contact their local Agilent Technologies distributor to place orders for Agilent Technologies products.
