1. 225-0020 and 225-0021: The nuts on the port fittings in the cap of the PFA Impinger do not seem to hold tubing tightly, even though I feel I have applied quite a bit of force. What is required for a good sample? Is there something I can do to ensure that the tubing is held more securely?

Answer: To collect a good sample, tubing must connect to the impinger port fittings in a manner that is leak-free and secure. When assembling the impinger, secure tubing to each fitting by tightening the supplied nut. Test each connection by pulling gently…
