Clippard Gasket & Sealant Tips

Category: 
Gaskets
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 Nitrile 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.

Clippard Push Quick Fittings Installation & Removal Instructions

Installation of Tubing or Hose into fitting
1. Slowly push a clean and perpendicularly cut tubing into the fitting until it comes to a dead stop.
2. Pull the tubing back gently until the Gripper Ring of the fitting grips onto the tubing and has a good seal.

Tips on Using Hose Barb Fittings

Category: 

Hose or Tubing Size.  The use of different sizes of hose or tubing in your circuits deserves some care and consideration. In general, follow the manufacturer’s guide for the size of hose or tubing you use. For air logic circuits, we recommend 1/16” ID for pilots and 1/8” ID for supplies and outputs.
