  • Proprietary seal material provides superior compression performance, cut and abrasion resistance and prolonged service life
  • Automated sealing reduces operator injury and fatigue
  • Large test/ fill port holes offer improved flow
  • Tightly seals without the risk of marring the surface of the part
  • Tapered guide adapter rapidly guides part into the CTS Connect fitting and prevents damage of the body and seal

Standard and Custom Air Actuated Luer Seals

CTS Connect provides luer-style connection fittings for applications in the medical industry. Luer fittings offer a tailored nosepiece that seals the outer geometry of the luer fitting. An air-driven internal piston guides the seal material into the face of the part, thus forming a tight seal that fulfills all test pressure needs.

  • Luer connectors engineered for simple assembly and disassembly
  • Patient-pending easy quick-change nosepiece locks into place securely to hold multiple luer fitting designs
  • FDA-approved medical-grade seal material
  • Safety vent port avoids cross-contamination of pilot air and test air
  • Seals on typical luer fitting applications will last for thousands of cycles
  • All materials are compatible to clean room, with anodized aluminum body, and part contact surfaces are made of 316 surgical stainless steel
