Push-to-Connect Fittings in Acetal and Brass

March 21, 2011

Easy-to-use Newloc® push-to-connect fittings are available in acetal copolymer and brass. Both are stocked in popular sizes and styles and allow quick connections to rigid and semi-rigid tubing such as nylon, polypropylene, and polyethylene. Typical applications include pneumatic control systems, food and beverage transfer, potable water, robotics, instrumentation, and chemical lines. Newloc fittings offer instant, leak-proof connections with no flow restrictions, as well as a full vacuum rating (29.9 in/Hg). They are designed to work with rigid and semi-rigid tubing but may also be used with softer materials depending on the tubing’s durometer or by using a tube support. Newloc fittings are easy to install, disconnect and reuse – no tools are needed. They allow for fast assembly of tubing systems, saving time over other connection options like barbed fittings and clamps.
