PTC push-to-connect fittings provide quick and simple tubing connection/disconnection. All components, including the release collar, are stainless steel, for use in corrosive environments and in applications requiring “clean” materials. Captured O-ring face seal technology ensures leak-tight operation. Buna-N O-ring seals are standard; fluorocarbon, silicone, and EPDM are optional. Configurations include 10-32 threaded straight, adjustable position elbow, and adjustable position tee as well as “tube to tube” straight union, elbow, and tee models for 1/4 and 1/8 in. OD.
Similar versions designed for 4 (5/32 in.) and 6-mm OD tubing will be available soon. They can be used with tubing materials such a polyurethane, polyethylene, and copper. For corrosion resistance and/or elevated temperatures, the 1/4-in. OD size PTC fittings also work with stainless steel tubing.
