Extensive range of compressed air fittings. All in stock.
Compressed Air Fittings with FDA Approval
Our FDA-approved push-in fittings
have been evaluated by a US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved agency and found to be safe for use in contact with food and beverages. These fittings are made of stainless steel 316 that is resistant to corrosion and is not prone to leaching or contaminating of the products they come into contact with.
The use of FDA-approved push-in fittings is important in a variety of industries, including food and beverage processing, pharmaceuticals, and medical devices, as it helps to ensure that the products being manufactured are safe for human consumption and use. By using FDA-approved fittings, companies can help to prevent contamination and ensure that their products meet the highest standards of quality and safety.
In addition to being safe, our FDA-approved push-in fittings are also more durable and long-lasting than other fittings, which can help to reduce maintenance costs and improve the overall efficiency of a manufacturing process.
Overall, the use of FDA-approved push-in fittings is an important consideration for any company that manufactures products that may come into contact with food or beverages, and helps to ensure that the products being produced are of the highest quality and safety.
Elbow fittings are available with a secondary port in both male and female threads in BSP and BSPT. They are often used where a smaller radius is needed than can be achieved with a tube.
Compressed air fittings 4-6 ports
Some pneumatic fittings have multiple ports, but typically no more than 6. A few examples of compressed air fittings with multiple ports are cross connectors and 5-way manifolds.
Therefore these pneumatic fittings are used for applications where they can reduce the total amount of fittings.
Tee push-in pneumatic fittings
Tees have either three push-in ports or 2 push-in and a threaded port available in both male and female in BSP or BPST (conical) versions.
Reduction Tees are used to connect a smaller diameter tube with two larger diameter tubes.
A variant of these are the so-called run-tees or odd tees where the threaded port sits in extension of one of the push-in ports.
Y type push-in compressed air fittings form a “Y” that connects three hoses with equal diameters. Reducing Y fittings connects a larger diameter tube with two smaller diameter tubes. In addition there are also Y-fittings with 2 push-in ports and one BSP or BSPT pipe threaded male port.
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.
Use a hose cutter (for example our USAG tube cutter) to cut the tube. Then insert it into the fitting. To remove it, hold down the retaining ring and pull the tube out.
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.
