PermeGear Nail Adapters are 28mm wide by 34mm long and are designed to work with 9mm or 11.28mm Franz Cells having flat ground joints. PermeGear Nail Adapters also work with 9mm Franz Cells having flat flange joints. The Nail Adapters shown in the photos are made of a black polymer which is used here only for illustration, no black Nail Adapters are manufactured.
Nail Adapters have o-rings in the clamping surfaces to prevent leakage. Nail specimens may be secured with or without sealant by four stainless steel screws that hold the assembly together. Gaskets or sealant are recommended.
Nail Adapters are available in two different varieties at this time, Neoflon and Type 316 Stainless Steel.
Nail Adapters are available in Neoflon, which is Daikin’s trade name for polychlorotrifluoroethylene, and Type 316 Stainless Steel. The part number for all Nail Adapters begins with NA followed by a dash, a two digit code indicating the orifice diameter in millimeters, another dash, and either NF for Neoflon or SS for Type 316 Stainless Steel. (Neoflon can be purchased from the Plastic Profiles division of Central Plastics.)
The most common Nail Adapter has part number NA-05-NF which means it has a 5mm orifice diameter and is made of Neoflon.
Nail Adapters are available in three orifice diameters: 3mm, 5mm, and 9mm. They can be used in 9mm or 11.28mm Franz Cells.
