All products that currently use a hose barb to connect tubing will have the hose barbs replaced with GL-18 threads. The GL-18 screw thread is safer because the hose barbs could potentially break during installation and removal. The GL-18 screw thread is used with a plastic hose barb that is inserted inside a cap and then screwed onto the glass thread. See figure above. The following products will be affected: GN-9BJGT-9BJGNM-HC-M23GN-HCCHGNM-TGNM-TPGN-VCGNM-VCCGN-VCHM-M202GN-VC-M202GN-VC-M202AVG-34VG-125/18WJGN-18GN-18B
Apex Instruments is now offering 5/8-inch silicone ferrules for our small parts kits. Silicone ferrules provide a consistent, leak-free connection and reduce slippage around the probe liner.
SBR-BLOWER Riser with Built-in Air Blower We have upgraded the motor in our Blower Riser from a single-stage to a two-stage motor. The flow has increased by approximately 25%.
Utilizing the help of a valuable demo testing group, we have made significant progress with our upcoming data acquisition system, Airdas. Airdas will pair a specially made data controller with our own custom, adaptable software for RATA testing in addition to compliance and engineering instrumental testing needs. In unity with our AFD-510 Flow Drawer, Airdas will provide the perfect complement for a complete and seamless solution. Stay tuned for more updates and
We have improved our umbilical cable design by adding a braided metal wire to reduce the amount of tension created on the umbilical cable connections. Contact an Apex Instruments sales representative for more information.
In an effort to increase the accuracy of our internal database of information, Apex Instruments has recently updated its product legends. As a result, many part numbers for our products have changed and should be carefully noted in the following areas: The part number suffix for a 240V version of a productNew system of part number suffixes to indicate which power output connector a product has.

4-pin Amphenol power outlet connector used on consoles. We have been notified by the vendor that the Amphenol 4-pin console power outlet connector will no longer be available. We will continue to offer our remaining stock and the 5-pin power connectors will become the standard in all our products. Affected products include consoles, sample box assemblies (heated ovens), umbilical cables, and probes. More information on our power connectors will be
Pinnacle Heat Pump The engineering department at Apex has always had its eye on the potential of thermoelectric technology to be able to cool the gas for moisture removal. However, the development of such a chiller was postponed due to the lack of adequately durable and reliable thermoelectric modules (Peltier elements). After having discovered the advantages and capabilities of the Phononics heat modules, Apex was ready to introduce a new
Sterling Gas Cooler – SGC-4000Hg After 15 years of using Stirling Coolers to cool and remove moisture from sample gas in our mercury sampling systems, Apex Instruments is switching over to thermoelectric technology. The cooler used in the STM-12B Mercury System as a replacement is the TEC-4000Hg. Additional gas coolers and condensers will be offered for various gas-chilling needs; each chiller will be available in both 19” rack-mountable and portable
Notice: New GA-3T Design Based on customer feedback, we have redesigned the GA-3T filter support. On the side that touches the filter, the O-ring and the groove are wider and closer to the edge of the disk, such that the filter does not contact the O-ring. This positioning creates more space in the center of the filter support, allowing easier alignment of the filter and preventing the filter from sticking
