Composite Push-In Fittings:

These new fittings are a quick and convenient method of connecting components throughout a pneumatic system. Designed for use with polyurethane, polyethylene and nylon tubing, these fittings accommodate tube sizes ranging from 1/8 OD to 1/2 OD. The oval design of the release button provides a larger surface area making tubing disconnection easier than standard round style collets. A variety of configurations are available to accommodate connection requirements. Choose from:

  • Straight connectors
  • Elbows
  • Tees
  • Reducers
  • Bulkheads
  • Crosses
