The purpose of this lab was to understand the proposed method of PVA bead production and to design and assemble junctions in tubing needed for production.
The main goal of the lab was to find a way to fit peek tubing into a larger-diameter (1/32") piece of Tygon tubing. The Tygon will flow a non-polar solvent, and the peek a PVA mixture. The main challenges: Creating an air-tight junction, inserting peek tubing without tearing Tygon tubing
