Fittings in Seven Materials
Choose polyethylene, polypropylene, PVDF, nylon, acetal, PFA, or brass. Fitting types include barbed, push-to-connect, cam and groove, and compression in styles such as wyes, tees, crosses, elbows, adapters, straight connectors, reducers and more. Plastic and metal clamps are stocked to mate with tubing in various plastics and rubber. NewAge offers quick turnaround on custom assemblies.
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.
