6% (Luer) Taper Reference Conical Fittings/Gauges

Luer fitting is a “conical fitting with six percent taper for syringes, needles, and certain other medical equipments” used worldwide to connect a variety of medical devices, components, and accessories.

There are two types of Luer fittings, Luer slip and Luer lock.

  • When male and female components that are joined by use of friction push and twist action then its called luer slip fitting.
  • When male and female components that are joined by screw-in threaded then its called luer lock fitting. Luer lock fitting forms a secure yet detachable leak-proof connection.

Our Reference Conical Fittings/Gauges are useful for performing the following tests as per ISO 594-1:1986 & ISO 594-2:1998.

  • Ease of assembly: No resistance shall be observed until the taper of the fitting under test and the reference fitting fit together securely.
  • Gauging: Male Conical Fitting: The small end of the male conical fitting shall lie between the two limit planes of the gauge. The larger end of the tapered portion shall extend beyond the datum plane of the gauge. Female Conical Fitting: The plane of the maximum diameter at the opening of female conical fitting shall lie between the two limit plane of gauge. Rocking shall not be evident.
  • Liquid Leakage: There shall be no leakage to form a falling drop of water under the test conditions. The axis of the conical fitting under test shall be horizontal.
  • Air Leakage: There shall be no continued formation of air bubbles, under the test conditions.
  • Separation Force: The conical fitting under test shall remain attached to the reference fitting, under the test conditions.
  • Stress Cracking: There shall be no evidence of stress cracking of the conical fitting, under the test conditions.
  • Unscrewing Torque: The conical fitting under test shall remain attached to the reference fitting, under the test conditions.
  • Resistance to Overriding: There shall be no evidence of override the threads or lugs of the conical fitting, under the test conditions.

Our Reference Conical fittings/Gauges with a 6% (Luer) taper are designed and manufactured according to ISO 594-1:1986 & ISO 594-2:1998 for testing the Syringes, Luer Hub: Needles, Catheters, Filters, Adaptors, Connectors and certain other medical equipments including Infusion Set, Transfusion Set & Three Way Stopcock.
