Joining 316 stainless with 1/4 gas line

I’m installing a stainless 316 dipstick onto my oxygenation system for rigidity and ability to heat sterilize.

I’ve got some 1/4" stainless barb splices, but can I join the barb and dipstick with an Oetiker clamp? I doubt the dipstick will deform over the barb. The other things I can think of are take the three parts to be welded or use a quicksteel or similar epoxy to join the parts.

Any thoughts or experiences appreciated!


You can join them with silver solder.
