Chemyx High-Pressure Syringes – Maximum Pressures

Chemyx Stainless Steel Syringes can be use with the Fusion 4000 and Fusion 6000 models. The table below show the maximum pressure for each Stainless-Steel Syringe compatible for the following syringe pumps. These values are theoretical calculations based on the formula found in the following article – “How To Calculate Syringe Pump Pressure“.

Syringe SizeI.D. Inner Diameter (mm)Fusion 4000 Approximate Max Pressure (psi)*Fusion 6000 Approximate Max Pressure (psi)*
6mL9.535004000
20mL19.131201000
50mL28.650450
100mL34.9300
200mL44 –200

*Note – Proper syringe O-rings need to be utilized if there is a leakage to achieve maximum pressures. Lubricating guide rods, lead screw, and proper maintenance is required to reach maximum pressures. Buna-N has a durometer rating of medium-hard. For higher pressure applications, a hard/very hard O-Ring (PTFE) needs to be utilized.

*Warning do not use any of the Chemyx Syringe Pumps for high pressure gas applications.
