An evolution in the development of jointed glassware
New Quickfit Plus® Secure Joints are an evolution in the development of jointed glassware. In addition to featuring a ground glass conical joint, Quickfit Plus® Secure Joints incorporate a screwcap locking system for enhanced safety and security. Normal conical ground cone and socket joints can be secured by using a plastic or metal joint clip, but the new Quickfit Plus® Secure Joints are locked together using a screwcap. This ensures a tight secure joint seal and means that the joint cannot accidentally come apart. It also means that the secure joint is leak-proof, preventing the escape of any potentially hazardous chemicals, gases or vapours, making it much safer to use for many laboratory applications.
A common problem when using ground joints is joint seizure, where the joints stick together, particularly if they have been used under a vacuum. The Quickfit Plus® Secure Joints are easy to separate, as loosening the screwcap will force the joint apart, minimizing the risk of breakage of the glassware and potential related injuries.
