Compressed air fittings typically connect two compressed air tubes, or tubing, and an instrument or similar.
Push-to-pull, push-to-connect, push-in, push-fit fittings are available with both parallel (BSP) and conical (BSPT) threads and can be quickly installed in a leak-free seal. The tube is simply cut with a hose cutter (for example our USAG tube cutter) and inserted into the fitting, which is then ready for use.
Removal is performed by holding down the retaining ring and pulling the tube out.
Note that the tubes must be more fully inserted to ensure a correct seal. Stainless steel fittings are ideal for pharma, food, and industrial pneumatic applications that require a high degree of corrosion resistance.
NexoAir push-in fittings are available for 4 mm to 12 mm OD tubing and can be used in temperatures from -15°C to +200°C and up to 20 bar.
