For top industrial equipment for wash-down applications, businesses turn to Wainbee Limited. This supplier carries many great products in this area – including stainless steel fittings, built to connect pneumatic components to each other and to system piping with a simple push-pull method.
The most durable fittings
Wainbee provides highly durable fittings from these two producers, built of high-grade 316 stainless steel and recommended for their robustness, reliability, and ability to resist industrial liquids in demanding work environments.
Clippard’s Push-Quick stainless steel fittings enable full flow through hoses and tubing without creating restrictions from smaller orifices, as with barb fittings. They have been built for application on flexible hosing and stiff tubing made out of nylon, polyurethane, polyethylene, or polypropylene. Small and compact, these fittings are suitable for the food-processing and packaging sectors, for their resistance to chemicals and corrosion. They can also withstand a range from -15 to 110 degrees Celsius.
Design options available include: run and branch tees; male elbows; stem couplers; female, male, and bulkhead connectors; and reduced, elbow, tee, bulkhead, and straight unions. They can handle a pressure range from zero to 250 pounds per square inch gauge at about 23 degrees Celsius, with such media as water, oil, air, and inert gas.
Parker Legris boasts the largest range of stainless steel push-in fittings on the market, combining robustness with a hygienic design. This manufacturer produces 19 different body shapes with diameters from four to 12 millimetres and taper or parallel threads from M5 to ½. They have been designed for use in such industries as food processing, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and paper.
Parker Legris makes two distinct lines of these fittings:
- LF 3900. With FKM seals for maximum resistance to aggressive environments.
- LF 3800. With FKM seals for elemental chemical resistance.
Both are suitable for permanent contact with food, in saline environments, for industrial cleaning with detergents, and when frequent sterilization of components is required.
