We manufacture a range of reaction tubes in silica, metal, ceramic glassy carbon for most makes and models of elemental analyser. If you need a special tube not found in our eStore or catalogue please contact us for a quotation. We have our own glass blowing and engineering facilities to produce one-off?s to production runs.
OEA Laboratories silica reaction tubes are manufactured in our own glassblowing facility. We use only high grade silica tubing made from Unimin sand which contains only a few parts per million of impurities. The high purity of this silica (quartz) raw material produces a product which withstands abrupt changes in temperature without failure and resistance to chemical attack. All reaction tubes are made from tolerance selected transparent silica (quartz) for a perfect fit. Most reaction tubes are offered in standard wall (1.4 to 1.5mm) or as a heavy wall option (2.0 to 2.1mm) for enhanced performance under severe combustion conditions.
We manufacture our metal reaction tubes in our engineering department. Our metal reaction tubes are available in both stainless steel and Inconel high performance alloy.
Our glassy carbon tubes are of premium quality with a high gloss finish for optimum performance.
Our ceramic reaction tubes are of premium quality and are close tolerance for a perfect fit. We only sell pure impervious alumina tubes suitable for high performance applications required in elemental analysers.
