Quick-connect fittings

Newloc push-to-connect fittings are now available in acetal copolymer and brass. The fittings permit quick connections to rigid and semirigid tubing such as nylon, polypropylene, and polyethylene and offer instant, leakproof connections with no flow restrictions, as well as a full vacuum rating (29.9 in.-Hg). The easy-to-install, disconnect, and reuse fittings require no tools.

The plastic (acetal) version is lightweight and comes in inch and metric sizes. The durable brass style handles higher temperatures — up to 200°F (93°C) – than the acetal version, and pressure is limited only by the working pressure of the plastic tubing being used. Pulling on the inserted tubing or increasing the pressure actually tightens the fitting’s seal.

Acetal fittings come in sizes ranging from 1/8 to ½-in. tube OD and from 4 to 12-mm tube OD. The brass style comes in 1/8 to ½-in. tube OD. Styles include tees, elbows, adapters, unions, Ys, four-ways, and bulkhead unions.
