PVC tubing offers excellent chemical, corrosion, and abrasion resistance with outstanding flow characteristics. Most styles are clear for visual contact with the flow. Construction options include wire or braid reinforcement, like-material reinforcement, unreinforced and rigid pipe, and different formulations are available (fuel and oil, 3-A, FDA, NSF certified). Applications include general industrial, food and beverage, potable water lines, pharmaceutical and medical, chemicals, fuels, oils, and mechanical applications including protective coverings and insulation sleeving.
A Comparison of Fittings
“A Comparison of Fittings” focuses on barbed fittings, push-to-connect fittings, compression fittings and cam operated couplings. It details how each works with tubing to ensure a good seal for proper fluid or air transfer. For instance, the report’s Barbed Fittings section notes that in order to obtain a proper seal, the O.D. (outer diameter) of the barbed area on the fitting must be slightly larger than the I.D. (inner diameter) of the tubing. The Push-To-Connect Fittings section offers tips such as making sure that the tubing used does not have exterior scratches, as this could compromise the seal.
PVC vs. Polyurethane A Tubing Comparison
PVC and polyurethane are thermoplastic materials that can be formed into a variety of shapes, including tubing and reinforced hose. Both materials are useful in numerous applications. But depending on factors such as temperature, chemicals and outdoor use, one product may perform better than the other in a particular application. This white paper examines each materials benefits, drawbacks, common uses and physical properties.
