The nature of the problem of using PEEKSil tubing is over tightening a fitting, which can break the PEEKsil tubing. It’s happened on occasion with our fittings, but the same holds true for many fittings on PEEKSil not just our UHPLC fitting. These fittings do hold very high pressures on PEEKSil, higher than other fittings, and are generally more reliable than other fittings on PEEKSil, but one must avoid over-tightening.
With plain PEEK, no worries
