duotight - 8mm (5/16) x 1/4inch Male (with seated o-ring)
This handy small duotight to 1/4 NPT threaded piece is really handy for many of gas fittings that we sell in particular. The 1/4 inch thread fits into the regulator body, the manifolds that we sell and many other fittings that often use 1/4inch thread.
This fitting is ideally used with EVABarrier 5mm x 8mm or EVABarrier 4mm x 8mm
No clamps necessary!
We do recommend cutting your hosing straight, not on an angle, to ensure the line has a complete seal. To remove the fitting simply push in the collet and the hose can be removed. These push in fittings are suitable to be used up to 100 psi
These push in fittings have been engineered for maximised performance in both gas and liquid applications. Compared to other push in fittings on the market, duotight takes the double safety approach to all of the connections with two EPDM o-rings per hose port. No other push ins on the market have EPDM o-rings, let alone two! per push in connection.
What is EPDM?
EPDM = Ethylene Propylene Rubber which has excellent chemical resistance including being compatible with ozone, oils, wide variety of alkaline and acid compounds, water, alcohol, ketone and beverages.
EPDM is also resistant to aging, weather and will not perish easily like other rubber compounds. When compared with silicon and vinyl EPDM has better gas transmission rates, better wear resistance, is BPA free and is the number one choice for many long lasting food grade applications.
