Southampton, PA (PressExposure) March 08, 2011 -- NewAge Industries now offers easy-to-use Newloc(R) push-to-connect fittings in acetal copolymer and in brass. Both are stocked in popular sizes and styles and allow quick connections to rigid and semi-rigid tubing such as nylon, polypropylene, and polyethylene. Typical applications include pneumatic control systems, food and beverage transfer, potable water, robotics, instrumentation, and chemical lines.
Newloc fittings offer instant, leak-proof connections with no flow restrictions, as well as a full vacuum rating (29.9 in/Hg). They're designed to work with rigid and semi-rigid tubing but may also be used with softer materials depending on the tubing's durometer or by using a tube support. Newloc fittings are easy to install, disconnect and reuse - no tools are needed. They allow for fast assembly of tubing systems, saving time over other connection options like barbed fittings and clamps.
The two Newloc materials satisfy requirements for different applications. Plastic (acetal) Newlocs offer light weight and are available in inch and metric sizes. They're certified by the National Sanitation Foundation for use with food equipment materials (NSF-51) and potable water (NSF-61) and are well suited for pneumatics. Plastic Newlocs are produced by John Guest, a respected name in fittings manufacturing.
Durable Brass Newlocs handle higher temperatures - up to 200°F (93°C) - than the acetal style, and their pressures are limited only by the working pressure of the plastic tubing being used. Pulling on the inserted tubing or increasing the pressure actually tightens the fitting's seal.
NewAge stocks Newloc Acetal push-to-connect fittings in sizes ranging from 1/8" to 1/2" tube O.D. and from 4mm to 12mm tube O.D. The brass version is available in sizes from 1/8" to 1/2" tube O.D. Styles include tees, elbows, adapters, unions, Y's, 4-ways, bulkhead unions, and more. A wide variety of tubing to mate with Newlocs is also stocked.
