Clippard offers a variety of accessories that are designed for use with Push-Quick Fittings. These include special #10-32 threaded adapters in both male (p/n 11674) and female (p/n 11675) thread configurations and adapters that can be used to plug a Push-Quick fitting.
The threaded adapters insert into Push-Quick Fittings and provide either a male or female thread that can be used to mount any Clippard product with a #10-32 threaded inlet. This allows the direct attachment of the product to a Push-Quick Fitting without hoses or additional fittings.
A number of circuits involve machine functions or events that take place simultaneously or nearly so. The normal inclination is to use a single air signal to initiate two or more events at once. In some circuits this is ok but the experienced circuit designer should be on the lookout for events that are really sequential in nature.
Gaskets are recommended for use with Clippard fittings. They provide snug, dependable seals without extra effort or materials. The most popular gasket for static sealing of #10-32 threads is the 11761-2 Buna-N Gasket. This gasket is included with packaged fittings and comes installed on a variety of Minimatic® slip-on fittings. Overtightening fittings with gaskets may have a tendency to extrude the gasket. While this may be a concern, the actual sealing is being accomplished by a small piece of the gasket at the base of the threads.
• Allow for easier assembly onto tubing
• Provide less leakage potential and increased pressure performance
• Reduce the need to constantly tighten the assembly
• Provide a single sharp edge allowing the barb to catch onto the tubing for a leak-free connection
• Require less clamp pressure
