MicroCNX® Series Connector

See MicroCNX Products

Building on the inventiveness of CPC, the leader in single-use connection technology, the MicroCNX® line introduces a new category of aseptic micro-connectors that provide a simple, efficient method of connecting tubing for small format biomanufacturing assemblies. Process engineers and operators specify MicroCNX sterile micro-connectors as the modern alternative to the cumbersome, industrial process of tube welding. The MicroCNX line is engineered specifically for the challenging conditions of biologic media transfer in bioprocessing, cell therapy and gene therapy applications.

Cv Value (Typical Flow Rate)

Cv Value Range: 0.04-0.27 for MicroCNX hose barb terminations
straight-through
Cv values represent the approximate expected flow rate in gallons per minute of water at room temperature for a 1 PSI pressure drop. The flow is generally constrained by the smallest diameter, which in some cases will be the termination diameter and not the Nominal Flow Path.
WARNING: Pressure, temperature, chemicals and operating environment can affect the performance of couplings. It is the customer’s responsibility to test the suitability of Colder products in their own application conditions. Use the graph above as a guide.
